For the first time, entry will be regulated. Masks must be worn while waiting to enter the festival, although they may be removed once you are seated. Social distancing of at least 6 feet from groups in front of you is recommended. Because the festival is held outdoors, there is abundant space to allow for adequate social distancing while still enjoying excellent views of the entertainment stage.
COVID-19 rules will be posted on the festival website, JazzOregon.org.
