Each year, the U.S. Gondola Nationals is hosted by an operating passenger gondola company.

Previous hosts have included Sunset Gondola in Huntington Harbour, California, and La Gondola in Providence, Rhode Island (the birthplace of the event), Newport Beach California.

This year the U.S. Gondola Nationals is being hosted by Gondola Romantica. in Stillwater Minnesota. The folks at Gondola Romantica have been providing gondola cruises since 1991.

At Gondola Romantica we are honored to host the fifth installment of this great gathering, and excited to welcome gondoliers from so many other cities to our waters.
