Per the announcement from City Council and Buncombe County Commissioners, which states they will pass a mandatory mask mandate for all public, indoor spaces beginning Tuesday, August 17th, we are following suit and are requiring all attendees to wear a mask at this event. Masks must be worn at all times; they can be pulled down or removed briefly only when actively eating or drinking and then they must be replaced.

To ensure the effectiveness of our COVID-19 health and safety protocols, we will be requiring all in-person attendees to provide proof of vaccination.

We value personal choice and body autonomy. We understand that the decision to receive the vaccine is deeply personal and we respect each individual’s decision.
