Fall is a season of must-dos. From pie baking to pre-holiday silver polishing, there’s no excess of space in the datebook. So forgive us for adding just one more event? Running from October 11th to 14th, at San Francisco’s Fort Mason Center is the San Francisco Fall Art & Antiques Show. Deemed “utter magic” by interior designer Bunny Williams and hailed by San Francisco itself as the “highlight of the San Francisco social season,” the San Francisco Fall Art & Antiques Show earns our vote for can’t-miss fall event.
The extravagant show, which is the oldest continually-operating antiques show on the West Coast, will celebrate celestial design this year with the theme The Sun, The Moon, & The Stars. Over 60 dealers will be on hand to showcase the theme. Expect to discover decorative arts from around the world, including rugs, jewelry, glass and more. As for what else to expect, see more details below.
For those looking to see and be seen, the show will kick-off on October 10th with the Preview Gala. With over 2,000 attendees, the gala brings together one of San Francisco’s most illustrious crowds. In addition to touring the show, guests can enjoy live music and premier catering. As is tradition, the show’s iconic vodka bar will also be flowing.
Lecture Series & Cocktail Hours
DECASO favorite Jay Jeffers and designer Suzanne Kasler will be on hand to give a lecture titled “The Curious Collector.” For modernism lovers, author Michael Stern will be discussing his new book Hollywood Modern, with a book signing to follow. Sip and learns will also be presented, with reds and whites provided by Napa Ridge Winery. For a list of more events and times, click here.
Lautrec & His Muses
The show will conclude with a world preview of LAUTREC! His Muses & Their Music. The music, art, and dance production will run at the The San Francisco War Memorial and Performing Arts Center in January 2019, but will preview with a hour-long showing at the show. For anyone who’s ever longed to step inside of Touluse-Lautrec’s vivid dance-scapes, the show is a must!
