FAQs

What are my parking options for the event?

There are San Jose city lots ($6 parking) close to the History Park entrance as well as limited street parking. If the closest lots are full the one on Phelan between Senter and 10th streets should have spots available.

Why are the Fair booths in a different location?

Due to another event taking place at History Park, the outdoor Fair booths start around the corner from the hotel. Walk in through the main gate and follow the road past the gas station.

Exhibitors are inside the Pacific Hotel and Bank of Italy as well as outside around the corner heading towards the light tower. The popular jumbo poster printing demo is near the Bank of Italy, next to the light tower.

Are there age restrictions?

No, all ages are welcome!

Are tickets required?

No, tickets are optional, and if you register you will receive a souvenir letterpress card when you check in, subject to availability. Online tickets are limited to two people since the number of souvenir cards are limited, but you are welcome to bring additional visitors.
