COVID-19 Safety Enhancements for Event Reopening

Due to the pandemic, Splash Festivals, Inc. is following the CDC Festival guidelines as well as The Event Safety Alliance Reopening Guide published by the ESA (Event Safety Alliance) for all of the festivals we produce. Our goal is to provide a safe and enjoyable shopping experience while helping artists, one of the most economically affected groups by COVID-19. Your cooperation and support will help to ensure outdoor events can be held safely as we move forward. Therefore, we’ve implemented the following practices:

  • Hand sanitizers are being added to Festival sites
  • All exhibitors, staff, volunteers and food service workers are required to wear face masks and/or face shields. All attendees will be required to wear masks and/or face shields, as social distancing of six feet may not always be possible
  • Where available, dining tables will have increased spacing and cleaning
  • Where available, hospitality areas will have increased spacing and cleaning and be limited to food products which are either bottled or prepackaged in a Department of Agriculture certified facility
  • Portable toilets and restrooms will have increased cleaning
  • Volunteers, exhibitors and vendors will be checked in contactless
  • Festivals with tight footprints are being moved to parks which will allow increased spacing of tents and proper social distancing
  • Where children’s areas exist, increased spacing will be implemented. Children’s vendors will be required to practice required sanitary and spacing measures
  • Artist Market vendors will be on-line for pre-Festival browsing
  • Where available, performance stage microphones will be covered with disposable windshields during performances. Microphones will be disinfected between acts
  • Signs will be posted to remind attendees of the need to wear masks, proper social distancing and hand sanitizing or hand washing
  • Pets will not be allowed within the Festival areas
  • A sanitation monitor has been added to Festival Committee
  • We will be updating this list as rules change for Public Gatherings
  • More specific information will be posted on each Festival webpage at
