The Bear Valley Business Association is a grassroots organization dedicated to promoting tourism in the Bear Valley area, and to promoting economic vitality, especially in Bear Valley Village.
BVBA hosts and/or produces many of the annual special events in town such as Winterfest, the Summer Community BBQ, the Crab Feed, Monte Carlo Night, and the New Year’s Eve fireworks show. BVBA also sponsors live music in Creekside Park and in the Cathedral Lounge at Bear Valley Lodge. In addition, we provide sponsorship support to the Bear Valley Music Festival, Free Heel Festival, the Bjornloppet Ski Race, the Lake Alpine fish plants, the annual BVPG Derby & County Faire and many other events. AND we sponsor local youth, high school soccer teams and the local men and women’s softball teams.
Recently, BVBA worked through Tesla to install two electric car chargers in Bear Valley Village. The BVBA also installed an 18-hole disc golf course in town. Both are available for use by the public, free of charge.
Many other smaller initiatives come out of our well attended monthly meetings.
