The Friends of Two Rivers Snowfest want you to know that your safety is always top of mind for us as we plan Snowfest 2020. We are committed to doing this event in the safest ways that we can for both our attendees and for our volunteers and vendors. We have consulted, and continue to work with all national, state, and local authorities on the safest ways to make this event happen at this time. We have integrated their suggestions and guidance into the layout and processes that will occur at the festival.
During this time there often seems to be more questions than answers to so many things. To help clear any confusion about what we are doing with Snowfest 2020 to keep you safe we thought putting some questions and answers together would help clear the air a bit.
Will you be implementing mask requirements or temperature checks?
Masks are strongly encouraged to be worn by attendees but will not be required and will not be provided. Limited number of face coverings will be available to purchase at the event. We will not be taking temperatures of attendees at the gate.
Will social distancing be enforced?
Social distancing will be requested to be practiced throughout the grounds. Service areas for food and beverages and the festival area itself will be set up to promote social distancing at all times. If attendees are experiencing fever or any symptoms of COVID-19, we ask that you not attend Snowfest. If you do not feel comfortable or safe attending an event such as Snowfest during the current COVID-19 pandemic, we request that you not attend however we do have an option for you to be involved.
What changes will be made for this year’s event?
Here are some of the changes implemented and potential impacts these changes will have on attendees. These changes have been made to make the festival safer for attendees.
• Admission entrances will be reduced to 25% of the maximum capacity of the area and the grounds fenced to monitor and limit daily attendance.
• Social distancing is requested at all times while on the grounds. Festivalgoers may bring their own chairs for music events and shows.
