The two events are co-located at the Jacob K. Javits Center, however:

  • Toy Fair is a four-day event (February 13-16) open to Trade only. With limited business-based exceptions, no one under the age of 18 will be admitted.
  • Play Fair is a two-day event (February 13 and 14) that is open to the public and visiting exhibitors with minors and families. It is housed in the North Hall only. There are individual costs to attend each session and full weekend passes can be purchased on the Play Fair site.
