About the Bonsai-A-Thon
The Bonsai-A-Thon is the major fund raiser for the GSBF Collection at The Huntington. The Bonsai-A-Thon is held on the last weekend in the month of February. The event has been expanding since inception. Each year you can expect 20 vendors selling pots, finished bonsai, raw bonsai stock, tools, akadama, scoria, accessories, and suiseki (viewing stones). Each day you can expect four to five demonstrators. They are picked not only from Southern California, but from the state at large and when available nationally known demonstrators as well. The trees from these demonstrations are auctioned at the end of the day. Along with the auction a large benefit drawing is held daily.

Two years ago there was a badge on their website that I printed out and wore along with my club badge - no registration list that I was aware of. Haven't seen a printable badge online this year though . . .

I will be going! I am a member of the San Diego bonsai club but I plan on just showing up and paying the regular admission fee. I have had no problems but I am not aware if there is any added benefit to going under an organization.

I really wanted to come this year but things did not work out. Hopefully the next big shindig you all throw out that way I will be able to come.
