THE JULY 5TH ANTIQUES FAIRE IS CANCELED
Dear Alameda Point Antique Faire vendors and attendees:
During the past 10 days since we announced that we would conduct our outdoor event on July 5 much has changed regarding the explosion of COVID-19 infections in so many states as well as in California. Our country is experiencing record rates of infection on an almost daily basis of this very dangerous and tragic pandemic.
The City and County of Alameda are confident that we could safely hold this outdoor event as long as all required modifications were in place. We are very sensitive to the needs of our wonderful antique vendors to be able to once again sell their treasures and the strong desire of our dedicated antique collecting Faire attendees to be able to shop at our event, but we feel that the wisest course at this time is to cancel the faire this coming Sunday and postpone future Antique Faires until we see the real flattening of the curve of infections in our state and the danger to our buyers, sellers and staff drops to the level that people feel safe.
While we exceeded the required safety modifications for the upcoming event such as required wearing of masks, hand sanitizing stations, advance on-line ticketing, etc. there has still been a daily increase in COVID-19 cases in the county. But more than anything else we place the safety of everyone involved above all other considerations as we would be devastated if we learned that holding our event, even though it is outdoors, caused even a single serious illness or something worse.
So it is with great sadness that we have decided not to go forward with the Alameda Point Antique Faire this Sunday.
For those who have purchased tickets on line Brown Paper Tickets will automatically issue a refund, there is nothing that you need to do. For our antique vendors be assured that we have not deposited your checks and if you paid on line with credit cards a full refund will be issued upon request.
All of us at Antiques by the Bay wish that you remain well and in good health throughout this very terrible time in history and we look forward to the day that we can all once again reunite in safety and confidence by the Bay…

Our Next Vintage Fashion Faire is: October 16 & 17, 2020
The City of Alameda ordered all non-essential events with attendance of 100 or more to cancel. Your health and safety are our biggest concern, so with deep sadness we canceled the March 13 & 14 Vintage Fashion Faire.
