November 24 – 26, 2023


Big Bear Lake, CA —  The 39th annual Mountain Christmas Boutique kicks-off the holiday shopping season in Big Bear Lake.  This year’s arts and crafts show once again takes place over the Thanksgiving holiday weekend, Friday, Saturday and Sunday, November 24 through November 26 at the Big Bear Lake Convention Center.  This year’s boutique features a huge variety of vendors, FREE arts & crafts for children, FREE visits with Santa, and holiday libations and food. 

Taking place for 39 years, the Mountain Christmas Boutique has become a Big Bear holiday tradition.  The show offers a quaint shopping experience featuring handmade and one-of-a-kind items and a variety of collectible and unique gifts.  Crafters and artists from throughout the Western United States converge in Big Bear Lake for the holiday weekend.  From wire-wrapped and gem jewelry, to handmade hats and scarves, to homemade treats and oils, to candles and wood crafts, there are gifts available for every taste and every budget.  Holiday items include Christmas wreaths, handmade Santas and ornaments, and holidays treats.  Each paid admission will receive a drawing ticket to win prizes from the various vendors, as well as other great Big Bear prizes.  Drawings will be held twice daily and guests will not need to be present to win.
