2022 COVID Guidelines

As we welcome audiences back for live performances, the health and safety of our patrons, artists, volunteers, and staff remain our highest priority. To that end, our policies and procedures are based on recommendations from the Center for Disease Control (CDC) and regulations from state and local governments, as well as the best practices in the performing arts industry, and the recommendations from the dedicated and knowledgable physicians on our Board of Directors. Please note that we will continue to monitor all relevant data and recommendations closely and make appropriate adjustments as deemed safe.
  • The Skaneateles Festival will not request proof of COVID vaccination nor proof of a recent negative COVID test result.
  • Face masks are strongly encouraged inside indoor concerts but are not required. Should this change, if you have purchased tickets, you will receive an e-mail in advance with further information and masks will be provided at the door.
  • The Festival encourages audience members who feel ill or show symptoms of illness to stay home. To facilitate this, we are offering a flexible exchange policy. Call the Box Office at (315) 685-7418 and explain your situation; we will exchange your tickets to another 2022 Festival performance based on availability.
