Begins in January-Runs til the Van breaks through the ice!
The annual Big Lake Ice Classic is a fund raiser where contestants purchase a ticket at participating businesses and try to guess when the 'ice breaker' vehicle will fall into Big Lake due to the ice melting in the spring. The winner splits the pot and the rest of the proceeds go for a college scholarship for a Houston High School senior.
Wholesome Family Fun! Join the big Lake Chamber of Commerce for hot cocoa and Christmas caroling in this most festive holiday tradition.

Welcome to the Big Lake Chamber of Commerce Big Lake Triathlon! An exciting, fun event for everyone from professional athletes to the novice just looking for some good, healthy fun!
September 28th & 29th 2013
The Big Lake Chamber of Commerce proudly invites you to participate in the 4th Annual Fall Family Fishing Derby. This event promotes the sport of fishing to the entire Mat-Su borough community and encourage family's to participate in a healthy outdoor event. Sport fishing contributes greatly to our economy and to the community. From coffee shops to gas stations, anglers who come out to enjoy our local lakes contribute to the health of our economy.
The mission of our derby is to promote ice fishing in the Mat-Su Valley and increase awareness and usage of Big Lake. We encourage those that are new to the sport and we help hone the skills and even learn from the seasoned veterans. There is no doubt that the interest in ice fishing is soaring as more and more anglers discover how fun and rewarding the sport can be. I can only hope that our derby has helped contribute to the growing enthusiasm we’re seeing for ice fishing.
