BARE IT Arts Festival (Aug 30-Sep 4)

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.

Since early on, Lake Bronson's little mascot has been a frog named Blakely. In honor of Blakely, we have themed our BARE IT arts festival after the little guy. Frogs In Space, Blakespheare in the Park and Blakely and the Lake of Fire are themes of past arts festivals. 

"101 Amphibian Nights" is our 2019 festival theme.
