Five Points Fest takes over NTWRK!

In 2021 Five Points Fest was 100% virtual thanks to our partnership with NTWRK (https://thentwrk.com/), and it was a huge success! For 2022 we are excited to bring both audiences together with our NTWRK stage LIVE IN FROM NEW YORK!

Here we will be able to bring vendors from the show floor directly to attendees who can’t make it to the event via the NTWRK APP! Not only that, we will be transporting vendors who can’t attend the festival live to the floor and beyond!

If you are a vendor who would like to take part please get in touch or complete this form!

Get ready to go big or go home!

Event Update 2022!!

Hello, Five Points Family!

Thank you for being so patient. We know you have been eager to hear from us with an update on the 2022 event, and we are sure you have noticed some changes to the planned Festival this year, so we wanted to reach out and give you the latest info.

Unfortunately, our amazing venue, the Brooklyn Expo Center, has closed down due to the pandemic. We have worked very hard to find a new venue in Brooklyn that can accommodate all of the fun things that Five Points Fest stands for and we are super excited to have found an amazing space that we know you will love!

The new dates are June 25th and 26th, at Zero Space in Brooklyn. (https://www.zerospace.co/studios/venue/)

We are so sorry you have been left in the dark while we scoped out new possibilities. We love throwing these events and have missed all of you so much!. We are finalizing details with the venue and checking in with Vendors to finalize Five Points Fest 2022… those vendors are having issues getting products this year, so all of that is being taken into consideration.

If you have purchased tickets and cannot attend our new posted dates, we are happy to honor them for next year and hope you will be able to attend!

As an independent festival, we put on these events as an opportunity for the community to come together and celebrate this amazing industry that we all love and cherish. We have been working so hard to bring you an amazing event, even with so many variables out of our control.

We will have more updates next week as we meet with the venue and some of our outside vendors. Thank you so much for your patience and understanding during this crazy time. If you have any questions please reach out to us via email at [email protected], any messages to our social media platforms will not be answered. 

Stay safe and healthy, and love each other.

Keep Rockin

Five Points Fest!

Five Points Fest News

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!

– FIVE POINTS FEST 2022 –

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!
