Sep 1-4: BARE IT Art Festival

BARE IT is Lake Bronson's most popular event, happening Labor Day weekend. Members, Guests, and Visitors are welcome to attend. Regular day and camping fees apply.

The theme this year is "Blakespeare In The Park." Throughout this weekend you are likely to encounter numerous creative, friendly people doing creative, interesting things like Swimming, Boating, Dancing, Performing, Art-making, Hiking, Playing Games, Tennis, Badminton, Pickleball, Horseshoes, and all-around fun-having. There will be great activities for the kids as well!

In addition to the various spontaneous outbreaks of awesome, here are some other experiences you can look forward to participating in:

- Relax and visit with friends while enjoying a nude soak in the hot tub or dry heat sauna
- Take advantage of all the kayaks, canoes and floaties at the lake, or mid-day nap on the beach anyone?
- Sit by the campfire and share stories, s'mores, and weenies
- Join a guided hike, or hike the trails and visit the 85-foot waterfall on your own. Lake Bronson has over five miles of trails to enjoy, most of it on our private grounds.
- Visit the art booths to appreciate the creativity of the artists in our community and have the opportunity to support them with a purchase.
- Create some memorable art to take home! Paint your body and leave it on a paper canvas.
- Come by the Costume Closet to see what’s new
- Join those with the Burning Man spirit at our Friday night Burner Dance
- Join the Saturday night potluck in the lodge, bring your favorite Elizabethan-themed dish (or anything you like) to share
- If the Burn Ban allows, join us as we dance around the bonfire
- Keep the groove going and head to the lodge to dance the night away at our Elizabethan-themed dance!
- Decorate your golf cart or bike, or put on your judge hat for the Parade and contest
- Chow down at the Road Kill BBQ (don’t worry – it all tastes like chicken). Bring a side to share.
- If you’re up for it, join the chipper chaps and chippies for a round of golf at the Blue Boy Golf Course.
