Located on the eastern shore of San Francisco Bay, Alameda Point was formerly the Alameda Naval Air Station. With its stunning panoramic views of the San Francisco skyline, the Bay Bridge, Marin County, the Oakland Port facility, and the sparkling waters of San Francisco Bay, the old aircraft runways provide an ideal site for what is certainly the most scenic antique show in the world.

Now in its 12th year of operations this event, held on the 1st Sunday every month, is host to over 10,000 antique buyers who converge here to search over 800 antique dealer booths for the widest array of antiques and collectibles to be found anywhere on the West Coast. The Antiques Faire has been named as one of the best antique shows in the nation.
