The annual Golf Tournament is now at TopGolf! The event is still competitive and fun but in a more social and exciting setting. Anyone can play at TopGolf, from aspiring pros to those who have never played the game. Players can bring their own clubs, or use those provided at TopGolf. The event will be held on the second floor, next the open air patio, live band and delicious food and beverages. If you’re not interested in golfing, join us as a spectator and enjoy the silent auction, food and drinks!
Each year on the first Sunday in May the Bay Area Museum hosts the Silver Tea as a celebration of the annual Lunar Rendezvous Festival. Continuing a tradition that began in the 1980’s, a local wildflower is selected for the commemorative teacups. The beautiful teacups are a local collectible.
The Splashdown Party replaces our Dining Night event and this year it will be held at Mercedes Benz of Clear Lake. Guests will dine on a sumptuous buffet and dance to music of the 60’s and 70’s. The Clear Lake community will be talking about this event for years, so this is one party you won’t want to miss!
For this year’s event we have added a 3K run/walk, and a 1K “Kid’s Space Race” to our traditional 5K run. Participants are asked to dress in space themed costumes so that they really are one with the Space Race course that winds through the grounds of NASA.
This beautiful, thoughtful evening is the beginning of “Lunar Week”, which culminates with the Coronation Ball. The service provides all the 2017 Lunar Rendezvous Festival participants an opportunity to come together and reflect on the ideals and purpose of the Festival.
The Lunar Rendezvous Festival Fashion Show is one of the most highly attended and popular events of the Festival. Lenny Matuszewski produces the showcase of fashion and glamour every year, and out does himself year after year! Guests are treated to fashions from Bay Area boutiques, a sumptuous lunch, and outstanding items in the live and silent auctions. This is one event you do not want to miss!
The final celebration of the Festival is the Coronation Ball. The reigning Royal Court, Little Ladies In Waiting, Pages, Princesses and Lieutenants are presented. The announcement of the new Royal Court, which consists of the Queen, Queen Alternate, and Captain, is the highlight of the evening. This formal black tie event beautifully depicts the history, tradition and honor of the Lunar Rendezvous Festival.
