Each year, Fesival Productions reviews all applications regardless of whether the vendor is a returning artist, commercial enterprise, non-profit organization, food vendor, or a first time applicant in any of these categories. Event sponsors are not required to have their information reviewed as these organizations have been screened by the hosting organization.

In order to have your show application processed for any Festival Productions show, you must select this "event" by checking the box to the left of the application event selection page the first time you apply for an event. Be sure that the number of spaces requested is set to "1", because you only need to pay one application processing fee. The $25. application processing fee will automatically be added to your total space fee charges for the events you signed up for. This is a one time annual charge. If you wish to apply for other events at a later time in 2015, you will not be charged the application processing fee.

2015 Webster Street Fair (formerly Neptune Beach CC)
Saturday, September 12, 2015 - Sunday, September 13, 2015 (10am - 6pm)

More Information | Get Directions

If this is your first application in 2015, please see 2015 Festival Productions Annual Application Processing Fee listed above.

This traditional mid-September event has gone by many names over the years. It started out as the Peanut Butter and Jam Festival, then was shortened to the Jam, and three years ago it was renamed to the Neptune Beach Community Celebration in order to capitalize on the 1920s amusement part known as Neptune Beach - "The Coney Island of the West." This event will continue the Alameda tradition of celebrating the amusement park with a large family friendly section featuring a ferris wheel (Saturday Only), bounces, water attractions, and an old fashioned Penny Arcade (actually 25 cents adjusted for inflation).

But, don't think this is going to be a kids and families only event. The Roaring 20s theme will cater to a broader range of guests. The main stage will feature continuous entertainment starting at noon and the event will take advantage of the Prohibition theme by setting up a speakeasy complete with "bathtub gin" and "hooch whiskey" based drinks provided by Alameda's own St. George Distillery. The City's local wineries and breweries will also be pouring their best and cross promoting. Plans for the vintage car show are also well underway.

This year's advertising will be expanded beyond the Alameda area and reach the entire east bay area to market this unique Neptune Beach/Roaring 20s theme. The target market being families and Millennials. Artist space fees have been lowered to $75 per day making this the least expensive two day street show in Alameda.
