Tickets for Opening Night Celebration
Thursday, September 16, 2021

We recognize that this evening is in direct conflict with the Yom Kippur holiday and, regrettably, while we tried to plan the sale dates around it, we were unable to do so due to Earl Warren's schedule. 

Our Opening Night Celebration offers access to our books before the general public's free admission on Friday. We will open for shopping at 4:00 and the festivities will begin at 6:00.


Buying tickets ahead of arrival is a convenience our guests find helpful, but is not required. Please note that it does NOT allow admission ahead of others. To ensure a spot in line, guests should arrive before noon when numbered cards will be distributed.

12:00 - Numbered cards will be distributed at the main door (facing Las Positas Rd.) of Exhibition Hall. 

3:15 - Admission tickets will be sold for $25/person. Payment can be made using cash, credit or debit card. Book Sellers with a completed California BOE Resale Certificate on file will be given a numbered wristband to expedite checkout.


4:00 - Entry will be through the main door only.


6:00 to 9:00 - The shopping continues with some fun added, including music by DJ Darla Bea. There will be two silent auctions with prizes worth over $1,000 - one will close at 7:00 and the other one will close at 7:45.
