PDF Rules and Regulations

The Alameda Point Antiques Faire has established a new Rollover Show Date Policy.

If a show is rained out we will automatically schedule a make up show for the following Sunday, the 2nd Sunday of the month. The Rollover date will only be scheduled if the show is cancelled by show management.

Check the website to see the status of the show. Look for your favorite dealers in their regular spots, as most of them will be there. We still hold the show in light rain, so how do you know if the show has been rescheduled? There are 3 ways to get this information:

  1. Check the website for updates before the faire. We will post a notice that the show has been cancelled, along with the rescheduled date.
  2. Sign up for Antiques Faire information. You can sign up on our website to receive email notifications for show reminders, information or rain updates. Look for the registration box on the main page of our website.
  3. Call the office to hear updates on our outgoing message. 510-522-7500.   So rain or shine we will see you at The Point!   If it’s a rainout show, we hope to see you on the 2nd Sunday of the month!

If it rains on the 2nd Sunday we will NOT have another rollover. The show will be held on its regular day, the 1st Sunday of the following month.
