Deep Ellum Arts Festival is ready to welcome our festival-goers back after being postponed in 2020! We understand the concerns about COVID-19 and we are cautiously following daily updates and public opinion that could again affect our upcoming production. Like yourselves we are navigating how to best coexist with this and get on with our lives. Alongside daily monitoring, we will be posting signage requesting that everyone, fully vaccinated or not, please respect others by wearing a mask. If you are displaying any symptoms do not attend. If you have concerns attending a large “outdoor” gathering do not attend. All festival activities, fine art and music stages are well-spaced over 6 city blocks. Attendance is fluid over the weekend with people coming and going throughout the day and early evening and rarely feels uncomfortable or over crowded. We remind everyone to “Mask Up, Space Out, & Have Fun” without congregating in any one area. As a community service, the Festival will also host a portable clinic that will offer the public COVID-19 vaccinations Saturday and Sunday from 12-3 PM.
The CDC offers guidance on their website for vaccinated and unvaccinated people who attend large “outdoor gatherings” to help prevent the spread of COVID-19 and the latest outbreak of the Delta variant.
