This will be a COVID-conscious, outdoor event. We are tracking the Delta variant and will continue to assess our COVID mitigation plan as necessary. Vaccinated guests are welcome to attend. Proof of vaccination is required. Upon check-in attendee temperatures will be taken and guests will be asked to complete a short health questionnaire for contact tracing. Masks will be required indoors and strongly encouraged at all times, and we will implement enhanced sanitation and physical distancing. For the safety of our community and children we will not offer childcare at the event this year.
