The Treasure Island Flea Halloween Costume Shopping Show unites food, drinks, art, antiques, up-cycled, vintage, and handmade goods, 10 a.m.–4 p.m. on October 26–27 at the Great Lawn. While visitors peruse the 300+ vendors, they can enjoy sipping the bartender's choice of specialty cocktails or non-alcoholic cocktails made with local spirits from the Treasure Island Flea bar. Gourmet food vendors offer specialty dishes or desserts, which are preselected by the chefs and posted at the front gate on the truck/booth's menu.
Visitors are encouraged to dress in costume to trick-or-treat at all of the booths, and then wander the pumpkin patch stocked with hundreds of locally grown gourds. At this dog-friendly event, children ages 12 and under are admitted for free, and free parking is available. Scavenger hunts take place both days, and all of the festivities are soundtracked by local bands.
Treasure Island Flea
In an interview with the San Francisco Chronicle, co-owner Angie Ansanelli called Treasure Island Flea "an upscale urban marketplace,” adding, “We curate all the vendors." She and her husband Charles devoted two years to scouring the region for unique merchants, including dealers of vintage goods and antiques, local wineries, and gourmet food trucks. It was the natural culmination of a 25-year marriage and business partnership spent manning a string of entertainment and retail shops on Pier 39.
Those early businesses gave way to a line of patriotic sportswear just in time for the 1994 Olympics, an endeavor that ultimately inspired Treasure Island Flea: the pair wanted to market their new duds at an open-air market, but, unable to find one or lift the roof off one of their existing shops, they created their own. Today, Treasure Island Flea harbors finds such as furniture crafted from recycled ship wood, hand-stitched bags, and pinball machines. Breaks in shopping and eating are filled with live music, scavenger hunts, and do-it-yourself workshops.
