Covid-19 Protocol

We will be asking picnickers to follow any health orders that might be in place at the time of the event and CDC Guidelines. We will have free masks and hand sanitizer. SEAD rented Fairgrounds Building #4 for shows and events, so there will be plenty of room for social distancing. Please feel free to bring a camping chair so you can have the best seat in the house for the shows.

Please leave your dogs and other pets at home for their safety and the safety of our guests.
