Covid-19

Updated 9/2/2022

We are so excited to host our Holiday Art + Craft Market in person again this year! In order to hold our event as safely as possible, we have some Covid-19 guidelines and protocols detailed below. 

Please read this information thoroughly, as compliance for all vendors and attendees is mandatory.

THIS INFORMATION IS SUBJECT TO UPDATES AND CHANGES AT ANY TIME! Please check back right before attending our event for the latest updates. We will be following the guidance from local, state and federal health officials, as well as the rules implemented by our venue, Oregon Convention Center / Metro, to hold our event as safely as possible. By attending our event, you accept the risk that you may be exposed to the Covid-19 virus or other illnesses.

For the safety of everyone:

  • Masks are RECOMMENDED but not required. THIS MAY CHANGE so please check back just before the event.
  • Attendance will be limited and with timed entry to allow for distancing among shoppers.
  • Aisles will be wider than at our events in the past to allow for more distancing between customers. To accommodate the wider aisles, we have accepted fewer vendors.
  • Vendor booths will have partitions between them along the backs of the booths.
     

Social Distancing + Sanitization

We know our show has been pretty crowded at times in the past, so we are taking extra measures to create space for social distancing. We are limiting attendance and will have timed entry tickets to better control the number of people in the room. We've also eliminated two rows of vendors booths to accommodate for wider aisles and allow more space between groups of attendees. 

We ask our attendees to do their best to respect 6' social distancing guidelines with people who are outside of their party.

To help with social distancing and touching of communal craft supplies, we have made the decision, along with the folks from Collage, to NOT have our free DIY Area this year. 

We encourage all attendees to frequently wash or sanitize their hands. We will have a hand sanitizing station at the entrance. Some vendors may also provide hand sanitizer in their booths. 

 

Wellness Check

If you or anyone in your party is feeling unwell, experiencing symptoms of Covid-19, or has been in close contact with someone who has Covid-19, please follow the current CDC guidelines to determine whether or not you should stay home.
