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 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 with all NY-based events you be required to be vaccinated to enter the show.

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!
Love,
Miranda, Josh, Sarah, & Team Five Points Fest.
