Hello Fair Family!  Welcome back.  We’ve missed you.

Please read through our safety precautions. The Oregon Country Fair realizes that COVID-19 may require us to change these plans.  We are committed to adjusting these based on the needs of our community.  We will continue to monitor and adjust based on the rules and guidelines put in place by the CDC, State of Oregon and Lane County so we can ensure that the show will go on!

Update 5/21/2022 – The OCF Board has updated the Vaccination Policy

OCF will require all members, volunteers, artists, crafters, performers, and vendors, as well as their accompanying children ages 5 and up, to provide proof of a full primary series of COVID-19 vaccination, as defined by the CDC. This includes everyone attending with a worker day pass, SO pass, VIP pass and trade pass. Children four years of age and under are not required to be vaccinated.

Please bring your proof of vaccination to the site, even if you emailed your proof of vaccination.

You will enter a few details to get a link to a QR code and electronic copy of your COVID-19 Vaccine record.

COVID-19 WARNING

COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. There is an inherent and elevated risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place or place where people are present and there is no guarantee, express or implied, that those attending the Oregon Country Fair will not be exposed to COVID-19.  

The Oregon Country Fair event will operate in accordance with all applicable public health conditions as of the date of the event. Those conditions, which may change at any time, as determined by federal, state, or local government agencies and may include, without limitation: changes to capacity; attendance procedures and entry requirements, such as proof of vaccination; and other protective measures such as requiring attendees to wear face coverings. If any volunteer does not comply with any laws, mandates, health orders or directives, or event terms, conditions or rules, then the Oregon Country Fair may deny participation at the event and require the volunteer to leave and they will not be entitled to a refund.

Our Safety Plan

Vaccination verification – Pre-Fair/Main Camp:

All members, volunteers, artists, crafters, performers and vendors will be given a wristband that shows they have passed vaccine verification;

Crews that can’t wear wristbands will be given a different credential.

You will be required to provide identification.  Please bring your vaccine card to site, either a digital photo or paper copy, in case your name isn’t on the pre-verified list.  Once you receive your wristband you will be able to come and go quickly. 

Vaccination verification – Event Registration:

All members, volunteers, artists, crafters, performers and vendors will be given their event wristband at registration.  This will show you have passed vaccine verification.

If you did not receive a wristband at Pre-Fair/Main Camp, please bring your vaccine card to the event.  If you receive a wristband during Pre-Fair/Main Camp then that will be your vaccine verification at Event Registration.

We recommend:

  • Wearing masks when in densely populated areas of the Fair
  • Socially distance when possible
  • Stand 6’ away from anyone outside your household in line 
  • Sanitize your hands before ordering food or eating

If anyone develops symptoms of COVID during the event, they will have to leave.

Our Sanitation Plan

A team of volunteers will work around the clock to keep the facilities clean. They will disinfect all high-touch areas such as restrooms, water stations, showers, shared equipment, etc. 

Hand sanitation stations will be located throughout the Fair grounds. Attendees must clean their hands before using water stations, restrooms and food service.

Crew COVID-19 Plan

Crews should create their own COVID-19 protocols based on their unique needs.  Please check with your Coordinator, Crew Leader, BUM or Booth Representative for guidance.  Fair will provide PPE in the form of masks, gloves, and sanitation wipes.  Sneeze guards and goggles will be provided for specific crews.  Please send your crews PPE needs to mark@oregoncountryfair.org.
