The longest running art, antiques, and design fair on the West Coast—and a highlight of the San Francisco social calendar—the San Francisco Fall Show is back for a 40th year. The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco, which oversees the de Young and the Legion of Honor, will be the new beneficiary this year, with the opening night gala taking place on October 12 and the show running from October 13 – 16 at Fort Mason. As usual, visitors to the show will get to experience pieces from over 50 of the top dealers from around the world, with furniture, art, rugs, jewelry, and much more on display.

As usual, the programming during the show will be top tier, with must-know names in the design and art worlds offering lectures and informative talks. Richard Mishaan, Summer Thornton, Ken Fulk, Kendall Wilkinson, and Mark D. Sikes will all be participating. Our very own Michael Boodro, host of The Chairish Podcast, will also be in attendance, moderating an event on gardens, interiors, and architecture with Aldous Bertram, Pietro Cicognani, and Suzanne Rheinstein.

Suzanne Tucker is serving as this year’s show chair, as she has in past years, working closely with exhibitors and partners alike, including developing the new relationship with the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. “I am delighted the show gala will be supporting our beloved museums and honored to be working with the extraordinary FAMSF team,” Tucker says. “This new relationship is written in the stars— a natural synergy between the pre-eminent antiques and art fair on the West Coast and the FAMSF world class museums.”
