Public Health Protocols

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public space where people are present. By attending Gravenstein Apple Fair Benefit Concert, you expressly agree to comply with any and all rules and safety guidelines put in place by the event organizers, in compliance with current State and County protocols, and voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19, waiving all claims and potential claims against the event organizers, and their affiliated companies relating to such risks. By attending the event, you agree to abide by all current State and County public health protocols. Refusal to do so will result in removal from the event grounds.

Please note that we will be requiring all staff, vendors, and volunteers to be vaccinated; we are streamlining processes to minimize lines and are deliberately creating a spacious layout with distance between booths and between seating areas. Also, tables of 8 are available for purchase, which have table service and reserved seating for minimum contact. Masks for the vaccinated will be optional. Mask will be required for the unvaccinated, unless eating or drinking while seated.

Sonoma County is fully in alignment with the state reopening plan. There are no longer any local orders in place. This includes large events; we are following the state guidelines for large events. For further info, please read CDPH guidelines for large events. The State mask guidelines can be found here.  This link summarizes State reopening safety measures.
