The San Francisco Fall Show is the leading international art, antiques, and design fair on the West Coast. Founded in 1981, the Show features over 50 of the top dealers from around the world, offering for sale an extraordinary range of fine and decorative arts representing all styles and periods, including paintings, furniture, precious metals, ceramics, jewelry, rugs, works on paper, books, ethnographic art, and objets d’art. All objects presented for sale by exhibitors are vetted for authenticity, date, and condition by a Committee of experts, organized by the Antique Dealers Association of California (ADAC).

 The Show is the major fundraiser for Enterprise for Youth, a nonprofit that empowers young people to prepare for and discover career opportunities. Youth cultivate their individual interests and potential through training, guidance, and paid internships in supportive and diverse environments. All revenue from the Opening Night Gala, ticket sales, and other Show events and programs directly benefit the nonprofit. No part of sales made by exhibitors is received by Enterprise for Youth.

The Opening Night Preview Gala has been called “the highlight of the San Francisco Social Season” and attracts nearly 2,000 patrons of the arts who come to shop, see friends, old and new, and enjoy an evening of great food, drink, art, antiques, and design. Stunning Designer Vignettes flank the Grand Entry Hall and the Pavilion shines for one of the best parties in town. The Preview Gala is known for its live music, caviar and vodka bars, and sumptuous dinner buffets and dessert stations. It is an evening not to be missed!
