As residents know, the Logger’s Jubilee was moved out of Fawnskin and instead we now host the Big Bear Renaissance Faire. The next two weekends will bring new visitors to our quiet town and we shall see how crazy it gets.

Big Bear Renaissance Faire Dates: August 11, 12, 18 & 19, 2007, Saturday 10 a.m. to 7 p.m., Sunday 10 a.m to 6 p.m. For visitor information call 909/585-7825 or for directions click here.

The Renaissance Faire will be held at Pedersens Mill, 39115 Rim of the World Dr. in Fawnskin. Parking will be marked. The Big Bear Renaissance Faire website asks people to not park in resident driveways.

Set during the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, the faire is an authentic re-creation of an English Summer Faire. Visit an exciting, vibrant village faire where you can experience a joust, strolling entertainers, stage performances, beautiful handcrafts, delicious food and drink, children’s area and the spirit of the days of William Shakespeare and the Renaissance.

The Big Bear City Renaissance Faire is a production of the Big Bear Valley Renaissance Society a not for profit educational organization. Profits are devoted to the education of the youth of Big Bear Valley. They are a completely volunteer organization with no paid staff members.

Ordinance Meeting Location Change

The August 13th Community Meeting, hosted by the City Council of Big Bear Lake, will instead be held in the Performing Arts Center, as community participation is expected and encouraged. The focus of this Council meeting will pertain to fire-related issues, including the proposed Vegetation Reduction Ordinance, which was discussed at Council’s July 23rd meeting. Attendees will receive vital information, details, and visual aids to help better understand the proposed ordinance regarding clearing and thinning vegetation, and how to best implement practices in your yard. City staff, including Big Bear Lake Fire Department Chief John Morley, will be on hand for questions and to clarify residents’ concerns, including the misconception of “clear-cutting”. The agenda for the meeting will no longer revisit the Wood Shake Shingle Ordinance, which will be readdressed at a future Council meeting. Residents, business owners and second-home owners are encouraged to attend next Monday’s council meeting which, again, will now be held in the Performing Arts Center at 39707 Big Bear Boulevard at 6:30pm.

Speaking of clear cutting, did you see the massacre of trees in the Moonridge Triangle? Don’t know if I can get any photos on my way out of town today…

    Hello There!

    I will be attending the BBRF tomorrow and am excited about seeing it’s new place!

    I’ve heard Fawnskin is just beautiful (I’ve never been) during the summertime.

    I have no idea where Fawnskin is (mapquest doesn’t either apparently!) so thanks for creating this blog. It’s be great to see what’s been happening in your neighborhood. Hopefully, I won’t get too lost getting there!
