COVID-19 Safety Precautions

We care deeply about the health of our attendees, vendors, and staff.  In order to ensure the safest event possible this year, we are asking that all attendees aged 12 and over provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 or a negative test taken within 72 hours, along with a matching photo ID. Proof of vaccination can be your physical vaccine card or a photo of your card. Children under the age of 12 are not subject to vaccine requirements. A negative test and use of masks are strongly encouraged.

We are requesting that if you aren't feeling well, you not attend. Masks are encouraged for attendees of all ages while not eating or drinking.

COVID-19 testing will be available on-site at the West Entrance located at 6th Street and Pennsylvania Avenue. We encourage everyone to get tested in advance at a local pharmacy. (DC Health Covid-19 Testing Sites) On-site testing lines could have long waits or delays.
