2018 Preview Gala

The Fall Art & Antiques Show 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, to mix and mingle and to enjoy an evening of great food, drink, art and antiques. Guests enter through larger-than-life thematic entrance displays 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, catered by McCalls Catering and Events. It is an evening not to be missed!

Show patrons enjoy a variety of benefits before and during the Show, among them early entrance to the Preview Gala, special pre-parties and events, unlimited show entrance and valet parking for the gala.
