Five Points 2021 and beyond…

We know a lot of people have been waiting for an update from us, and unfortunately, we have been holding out to see what the current state of the Delta variant of Covid19 would bring. 

We are still in a situation where is it is difficult for people to travel, and anyone with children are double hesitant to attend large events. We know some large events are still happening, but we have been in touch with many attendees and vendors, and they just don’t want to put themselves in a situation where they feel uncomfortable, especially as the winter months close in and infections are bound to spike. 

Our focus is to keep everyone as safe as possible, and even with New York implementing vaccine-only events, we are just not comfortable with a 2021 in-person event.

So here is the big news…

Excitedly, we have partnered with NTWRK to do a full two-day festival takeover of the app! We will be bringing you festival highlights with vendors from all over the world. Download the app and mark your calendars for Oct 30, 31st!!

We will be bringing you killer drops from the likes of Mutant Vinyl Hard Core, The Cotton Candy Machine / Tara McPherson, Boglins, 2petalrose, 5thTurtle, Toy Tokyo, Sket One, and many more….

Look out for more info on what to expect in the next few weeks!


For our next or in-person events, we are psyched to announce that we have secured our usual date of June 4 – 5, 2022 at the same amazing venue – the Brooklyn Expo Center!

All tickets purchased for the 2020 event will be valid and have already been moved to the 2022 date. Please check your event bright account to make sure your ticket is available!

As a team, we create this event because we love toys, art, and most importantly our community of artists and collectors. We are so grateful for all of your continued support so that we can keep putting on events that expand and solidify the community!

COVID-19 Postponement Announcement

To our Five Points Fest family,

Thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time. 

With the current public health crisis posed by COVID-19 it is becoming increasingly clear that we cannot hold Five Points Fest 2020 at the end of May as scheduled.

We are currently working with The Brooklyn EXPO Center to reschedule the event at a later point in the year. We are hopeful that they will have a concrete date for us sometime in the next week.

All tickets will be honored for either a postponed date in 2020 or Five Points Fest 2021. VIP Ticket Holders will still be receiving their 2020 toy regardless.

We will be honoring all booth deposits, payments, and sign-ups for 2020 towards either the postponed date for Five Points Festival 2020, or Five Points Festival 2021.

As soon as we have more information we will let you know.
If you have any questions for us please get in touch – [email protected]. We’re busy working to find the best route forward right now so please bear with us if our responses aren’t as quick as usual. Stay inside, and stay safe!
Miranda, Josh, Sarah, & Team Five Points Fest.
