The San Francisco Fall Antiques Show (SFFAS), established in 1982, is the oldest continuously operating international antiques show on the West Coast and is ranked among the top such fairs in the world. It was included in the Robb Report's list of the ten top International Art and Antiques Fairs (Winter 2006). The four day long event takes place annually at Fort Mason in San Francisco.
The show features approximately 70 international dealers, a loan exhibition, lecture series, and related parties. All items at the show are vetted in cooperation with the Antique Dealers Association of California (ADAC).
The show is prefaced by a Preview Party, which is considered to be a prestigious social event in San Francisco, attended by approximately 3,000 people.
The SFFAS was established in 1982 as the major fundraising event for Enterprise for High School Students (EHSS).
