After a very difficult and tragic year for the world battling the COVID-19 virus there is finally a light at the end of the tunnel.

Due to the promise of vastly reduced risk thanks to the ever-increasing vaccination rates, we are targeting this May for the reopening of the Alameda Point Antiques Faire. 

All of us at Antiques By The Bay have missed our wonderful antique vendors and the many dedicated antique collectors who have come to look forward to the 1st Sunday of the month as a very special day on the calendar. 

We will not be taking booth reservations for May until early April, as we want to be certain that the current progress in the fight against the pandemic continues in its promising direction.  Regular Vendors will return to their established locations.

When we reopen, we will have a set of very strict new rules to ensure safety for all present:

  1. Masks will be required for all Faire sellers and attendees.  Any person walking around without a mask will be promptly ejected from the Faire. We will ask all dealers to phone the show office trailer to report violations of this rule.
  2. Each Vendor will be required to have a dispenser of hand sanitizer on his / her table for customer use.
  3. We will make shopper admission tickets available in advance as to vastly reduce ticket buying lines on show days.  Look forward to our advance ticket announcement in April.  We will not use Brown Paper Tickets, but any tickets purchased through them for our canceled July show may be used at a future show.
  4. In order to reduce the attendance at our event, we will be adjusting our admission prices as follows;  

Vendor Setup - 6am to 7:30am            $20 

Early Buy - 7:30am to 9am                 $15

 Morning - 9am to 12pm                      $10 

 NEW Afternoon - 12pm to 3pm          $5 

It should be noted that we have not increased our admission rates for 15 years as our last increase was in 2006.

As we approach our reopening we may add some additional safety restrictions as needed.  For the immediate time, we will not be operating our parking lot shuttle, out of an abundance of caution until further notice.

We sincerely hope that the recovery process continues as expected and we can welcome you all back to our beautiful Faire site at Alameda Point.  Until then wear masks, stay safe and get your vaccination as soon as you are able.

Looking forward to seeing you soon,

Allen Michaan


We hope the VFF will reopen in late spring but this depends on the status of the vaccine.  Since it will take time to distribute the vaccine and we need to advertise in advance, it could be fall before we can hold our show.  We will update the websites and send notices as we get closer to that time. Brown Paper Tickets is not responding to calls or emails for refunds. We will honor your ticket purchases at a future event, even though we did not get paid for them.

We hope everyone remains in good health and look forward to seeing you in 2021.  Visit for more information.
