COVID-19

Festival health and safety plan

The Festival (all employees, vendors, volunteers, attendees and contractors) will adhere to appropriate COVID-19 guidelines and protocol at the time of the event. Guidelines will be determined by the Astoria-Warrenton Area Chamber of Commerce, based on guidance from local and state health agencies and the CDC, to ensure both exhibitor and attendee confidence to attend, safety and community wellbeing.

We will continue to monitor the situation with public health, and should regulations change we will make further updates to this Health & Safety Plan to reduce the potential for COVID-19 transmission.

If you are unfamiliar with the State of Oregon’s current COVID-19 public health guidance, we suggest that you review coronavirus.oregon.gov.

Masks are mandatory at this event. An approved mask is required to be worn covering the nose and mouth at all times except while eating and drinking while stationary. This applies to all people ages 5 and above. For the safety of all, there are no exceptions.

Please wash your hands frequently, and provide your own hand sanitizer for your booth staff and customers, if possible.  We will provide sanitizer throughout the festival for attendee and volunteer use.

Where possible, keep a respectful distance in public spaces. Consider replacing hugs and handshakes with a wave or elbow bump.

Do a personal health screening before arriving at the event each day to assess whether you or your booth staff, or close contacts, have any COVID-19 symptoms. If anyone begins to feel ill during the festival, send them away.

As of December 21, 2021, we anticipate the need to require all attendees, exhibitors, volunteers, etc. to show proof of negative test or vaccination to be on the premises of the event.
