Festival Planning & Safety Updates:

Updated Mon., August 23, 2021

  • Masks: At this time, masks are not required outdoors or indoors during the event. Individuals are encouraged to follow the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) guidance
  • Dessert Service: To limit crowding indoors, all dessert items will be sold outdoors through pass-through windows. To minimize additional contact, we will have whole apple pies and whole apple crisps available to-go. The single-serve pie, ice cream, and cups of cider will not be sold at the event this year. Individual crisps will be available.
  • Cleaning: There will be increased cleaning of touchpoints and restrooms and multiple hand sanitizing stations available throughout the grounds. Please sanitize and wash hands frequently.
  • Event Layout: The event layout will expand this year to allow for more social distancing, including spreading out picnic tables and spacing lines.
