Social Season is Upon Us!

Posted on June 9, 2014

Summer Fun at Basin Harbor Pad_034

This weekend will kick off our 128th Social Season! Social Season means school is out (or will be soon),  warmer weather, refreshing lake swims and many more events going on for you and the whole family!

Visit the online BHC Calendar for updates and special events!


Sunday, June 15th will mark  the return of Sunday afternoons with DJ Charlie. The Beach Party will be moving up to the pool this year for added fun, more space and some awesome new “float-ables” that can be used in the pool!

Tuesday will mark the first Harbor Fair of 2014 followed by Thurday’s first Shore Dinner of the season. This first Shore Dinner is even more special this year because the Onion River Jazz Band will be celebrating their 30th anniversary!

The Onion River Jazz Band is a seven piece traditional Dixieland jazz band based in Burlington, Vermont (that hot bed of jazz!). For over 30 years, the Onion River Jazz Band has been presenting traditional New Orleans Dixieland Jazz which represents the roots and origin of jazz in America. The band has worked to preserve the original sound of jazz with the performance of tunes from such legends and innovators as King Oliver, Louis Armstrong, Jelly Roll Morton, Bix Biederbecke, Lu Watters and Clarence Williams.

On Thursday, June 19, 2014, Basin Harbor Club will play host to the Onion River Jazz Band on their waterfront, by the North Dock, as the Band celebrates their 30th anniversary. A cash bar will be available, and if you’re in the mood for a fine Shore Dinner while you listen to the sweet sounds of Dixieland Jazz, you can call the Basin Harbor Club at (800) 622-4000 for details and reservations for this jazz concert. The concert is FREE and open to the public if the weather cooperates. In the event of inclement weather, the celebration will be moved inside to the Resort’s Ranger Room and dinner reservations will be required due to lack of space.
