We’ve been working hard to bring back an in-person Artisphere for 2021, and we can’t wait to celebrate with you! With that said, we’re doing things a bit differently this year.
As always, Artisphere is committed to keeping artists at the heart of the festival, and to producing an award-winning event with health and public safety as our top priority. The most notable changes to our 2021 festival will be:
Masks Are Mandatory
All artists, patrons, and volunteers are required to wear a mask for the duration of the festival. Patrons who forget a mask will be provided one upon entry.
Social distancing will be encouraged by signage posted prominently throughout the festival.
The festival site will be gated, with three points of entry: the intersection of River and Augusta at South Main Street, Markley Street at Fluor Field, and Wardlaw Street.
Handwashing and Sanitizing Stations
Stations will be placed frequently throughout the festival. Regular sanitizing of common areas will take place throughout each day.
Artists will be required to hang public health and safety signage (provided by Artisphere) prominently in their booth throughout the festival.
Two Patrons at a Time
Two patrons (or one family) can visit each artist booth at a time. Artists will be asked to sanitize between patron visits as much as possible, and touchless payment options are strongly encouraged.
