Covid safety requirements by the State of DE and the CDC:

(or how to enjoy an art festival during a pandemic)

If you want to know what the regulations are visit:

Here is the April 26th update regarding mask usage outdoors:

"Face coverings are not required in an outdoor space open to the public when an individual can maintain at least six (6) feet of social distance between members of separate households, unless otherwise specified. "

 With that in mind, if you are closer than 6 feet - you will need a mask.

  • Every person must wear a mask covering nose and mouth (kindergarten age and up) unless you are 6 feet apart from others.

  • Persons must stay 6 feet apart from each other (unless in same household) unless you are wearing a mask.

  • Hand sanitation must occur frequently (especially before handling any merchandise.) Hand washing stations and hand sanitizer stations will be provided throughout site.

  • Contact tracing information must be gathered to provide to the State of DE should an outbreak occur. (In order to achieve this mandate - we will be instituting a nominal admission fee this year.  Think of it as a kindness donation to an event you cherish.)

  • Admission tickets for timed entrance to limit numbers of attendees at a time. (AM or First Half ticket will allow entrance from 10 am until 1:30 pm.  PM or Second Half ticket will allow entrance from 1:30 pm - 5 pm.) 

  • Admission tickets may be purchased on event day at our admission booth on site. It is highly recommended that you purchase your admission tickets online prior to the event.  (When you arrive, take your printed receipt or show it on your phone, and proceed to the Admission booth, located at the intersection of Marion Ave and Brandywine Blvd., to obtain your timed admission sticker.)

  • Bring your own lawn chairs if you wish to sit near music tent, or need to rest at times. (Due to sanitition limitations we will not provide chairs this year.)

  • Designated eating areas will provide distanced Hightop standing tables. 

  • Distance markers will be on the street to insure proper spacing. 

Parking is available at Mount Pleasant Elementary School

at the corner of Duncan and Brandywine Blvd.
