Stay Safe. Enjoy the Vibes.
Our community is incredibly important to us. You are the reason the Utah Arts Festival exists. The safety of all those who participate in and attend the Utah Arts Festival is of the utmost importance. While we are excited to be bringing the festival vibes back to you live, we also recognize the public health crisis that our community is currently facing. We need your help to ensure everyone can stay safe and enjoy the vibes.
The Utah Arts Festival is committed to following all state health guidelines and CDC guidance as it pertains to addressing COVID-19 and related variants. Currently there are no specific restrictions or mandates from the state that we are required to enforce. With that said, the safety of our staff, volunteers, participants and patrons is paramount and for that reason we are encouraging the following best practices based on CDC guidance for those who are attending or participating in the Utah Arts Festival.
- We recommend you do not attend or participate in the Utah Arts Festival if you are experiencing any of these symptoms as outlined by the CDC.
- Being vaccinated and wearing a mask is the best way to keep yourself and others safe. Attending a public event or mass gathering despite being outside presents a risk for exposure to COVID. Wearing a mask is currently a choice each individual must make. Please use caution, be courteous, and employ common sense in determining what is best for you and your fellow art fans. We welcome anyone who is concerned about the risk of COVID to wear a mask at the Utah Arts Festival for their safety. Guidance for those who are fully vaccinated can be found here.
- The CDC recommends that those who have not been vaccinated wear a mask when in public. Masks are strongly encouraged for those who have not been fully vaccinated or who have been exposed to COVID-19 recently, or who are awaiting results of a COVID-19 test. The CDC also outlines recommendations for those who should not wear masks due to health-related risks. Additional guidance on wearing masks for those who are unvaccinated can be found here.
