Tickets for Opening Night Celebration
Thursday, September 16, 2021

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 Exhibit 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 and local DJ Darla Bea will provide the music! In addition, each paid entry will include one raffle ticket with the opportunity to buy more inside at 3 for $10. The value of the raffle prizes are at least $50. Raffle drawings will take place at approximately 7:00 and 8:00 - winners must be present to win. When you see an item you like, put a ticket (or several) into the jar next to it and see if you get lucky!
