The Nancy Ann West Coast Gathering is an annual event for collectors and admirers of Nancy Ann Dressed Dolls and related items. Each year, attendees come together for a day of fun, sharing, informational programs and displays, buying and selling of Nancy Ann dolls and accessories, a competition, drawings, and much more. The entire event is dedicated to the beautiful dolls first made by the Nancy Ann Dressed Doll Company in San Francisco, CA from 1936-1965. Throughout these years the company adapted to growing markets and innovations producing a variety of dolls with stunning costumes. Since then the company has changed hands several times but the tradition of beautiful collectible dolls has remained true to the original vision. The Gathering is an exciting "must-do" for any doll collector! There is no other event like it to enhance your knowledge and your collection of Nancy Ann dolls, as well as socialize and make new friends.
