2022 GSBF Bonsai Rendezvous is the One-of-a-Kind FREE Bonsai Gathering!

GSBF Bonsai Rendezvous in Santa Nella will be held October 8 & 9, 2022. “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 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.

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

  • First, GSBF wants to create a FREE 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.
