2021 GSBF Bonsai Rendezvous

2021 GSBF Bonsai Rendezvous is the One-of-a-Kind Bonsai Gathering!

Due to the pandemic and the associated challenges of the past 17 months, GSBF has chosen to give “Bonsai Rendezvous” in Santa Nella, October 2 & 3, 2021, a different look than prior bonsai gatherings.

The bonsai community like everyone else was impacted by the pandemic. Our activities traditionally take place during club meetings and at special events open to the public. Because these activities have been put on hold many believe there is a ‘pent up’ demand within the bonsai community for a chance to get together and share our common experiences and knowledge.

“Bonsai Rendezvous” will be a celebration of our love for bonsai. The theme should portray the two-day event in October as a unique chance for renewal and celebration as we begin a return to normal where we can once again open our events to the public.

The goals of “Bonsai Rendezvous” are two-fold:

  • First, GSBF wants to create a fun and exciting two-day event which brings together our bonsai clubs, bonsai enthusiasts and the public for the love of bonsai;
  • Second, GSBF corporate charter designates us as an educational not-for-profit entity for promoting bonsai in California.

Lowest Possible Cost

This event is “free”. There is no registration or entry fee although donations are accepted and welcome. There will be no organized meal events/banquets. However, we trust our bonsai friends to find creative solutions for themselves.

COVID-19 Health Safety Statement

CDC, California and local health safety guidelines for COVID-19 will be followed in this event. The venue property confirms they are currently undergoing enhanced cleaning measures. Hotel Mission de Oro website: Hotel Mission de Oro.
