We think deep down we knew this was a coming. Last night it was confirmed. Five Points Fest 2020 has been postponed. Originally expected to take place over the course of the 30-31st May 2020, the COVID-19 situation has caused the difficult decision to postpone Five Points Fest . The good news is that the Five Points Fest guys are looking to reschedule the Designer Toy convention until a later date in the year. They dropped a press release last night, which you can read below for those that have purchased tickets for 2020. Check it out below.

As of now, Five Points Fest 2020 is postponed.Five Points Fest, March 2020
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.
We will be honoring all booth deposits, payments, and sign-ups for 2020 towards either the rescheduled date for Five Points Festival 2020, or Five Points Festival 2021.
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 of the final event date.
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 normal.

Stay inside and stay safe!
