Bass Lake Rendezvous

The Northern CA/Lake Tahoe and Southern California ACBS Chapters want to welcome you to join us at beautiful Bass Lake for the 27th Annual Bass Lake Antique and Classic Wooden Boat Show and Rendezvous.  The first in-the-water boat show for 2017 is on May 19th through May 21st, but if you can arrive a couple days early to Bass Lake, plan a side trip to enjoy the beautiful and magical views of Yosemite National Park only 17 miles away. With all the rain and snow that we have been receiving this season, the waterfalls will be amazing to see. What a treat it will be to have Bass Lake full again this year after the harsh drought that we all have had to deal with the last few years.

As a special bonus this year, we will be having a Hot Rod Car Show for all to enjoy over-looking Bass Lake next to the boat docks. Good Times!!!
