Are you part of the Bored Apes community? If so, you’ve probably heard quite a bit about APE FEST 2021, a multi-day event where the party just doesn’t seem to stop and like-minded collectors are having a ball; you may have even seen Twitter posts like the one below showing a thousand people partying on a real-life Yacht!

Recapping What’s Happened So Far
Before we get into what’s coming next in the multi-day party known as the APE FEST, let’s chat about what we’ve seen so far.
The event started yesterday with lines as far as the eye could see as enthusiasts made their way to Bright Moments Gallery in Manhattan for an event that took place from 1pm to 6pm. The gallery was packed to the gills, completely filling the 400 person capacity, and the streets outside.
The gallery was an immersive event thrown by the dream team that created APED LA. The party included a costume party and the Apes Fest Mutant Halloween party.
That’s not the only thing the Apes were doing on Halloween though. Remember the yacht video at the beginning of this article? That also happened yesterday when, once again, there were lines of Bored Ape enthusiasts as far as the eye could see, trying to get on a massive yacht.
What better way for members of Bored Ape Yacht Club to hang out than by partying on a yacht?
At 7:30, the yacht started boarding a thousand guests and by 8:30, it was off to the races, sailing around the Hudson. If you haven’t done so yet, check out the videos that are all over Twitter. The event was something to be seen for sure!
What’s Next at APE FEST?
According to the schedule for APE FEST (look below), there won’t be anything happening today in the event, but it will pick back up tomorrow, November 2, 2021.

APE FEST Merch Popup
Next up on the schedule is the APE FEST Merch Popup that will take place November 2, 2021, starting at 11am and running until 7pm. Since this is a popup, BAYC didn’t give much information as to what to expect. We know there’s going to be merchandise, food trucks, and entertainment, but the venue and exact details won’t be known until the Popup begins.
APE FEST Warehouse Party
Next up, on November 3, 2021, the BAYC will be throwing an APE FEST Warehouse Party, and if the party is anything like the Yacht party was, be prepared for a long wait to get in and such a good time on the inside that it will all be worth it.
The party will take place at Brooklyn Steel in Brooklyn New York, but like the popup, we don’t know all the details quite yet.
So far, the BAYC has not yet announced the times of the party. However, we do know the warehouse can hold up to 1,800 people, 800 more than the yacht’s capacity.
APE FEST Charity Dinner
Finally, the BAYC will be holding an APE FEST charity dinner at Carbone in New York City on November 6, 2021. The dinner will start at 8:00pm and end at 1:00am. However, this is the most exclusive event in the entire APE FEST.
Only 50 guests will be able to attend the dinner!
The Bottom Line
The bottom line is that there’s quite a bit happening for Bored Apes enthusiasts today, but it goes far beyond simply pointing out that Apes know how to party. The simple fact is that while NFTs are a relatively new concept, they’re doing what few collectibles have ever done… bring massive amounts of like-minded people together and build a bustling community of enthusiasts!
