5th Annual Outhouse Race & Calcutta Auction

Much like the gold fever that once spread through these mountains over a century ago, “outhouse race fever” has clearly struck Big Bear.

Come to the Calcutta Auction and bid on the fastest “People-Powered-Potty in the West.”

The winning bidder splits the prize pot with the championship team and Old Miners. The championship team is awarded the coveted “Golden Outhouse” trophy as well as gift certificates from Old Miners event sponsors.
A “People’s Choice” award will also be granted to the best decorated outhouse and team costumes.
Race-ready outhouses will be available for rent – reserve in advance to ensure a place in the bracket!
