Audience Safety Protocols


San Francisco International Arts Festival
Public Safety Rules for INDOOR performances

October 22 – 24, 2021

Last Updated: October 21, 2021

All persons attending indoor events at the Festival this weekend must provide proof of having been vaccinated against COVID 19.

Children 12 years or younger must have a negative COVID-19 test.

All attendees, including children, must wear a mask or face covering when inside SFIAF venues..

Anyone who does not follow the above rules will not be allowed access to the venue and will not be given a refund on any ticket purchasers they might have made.

Even if you have been vaccinated and tested negative, please do not come to the event if you are feeling unwell or have a high temperature or if you know you have been exposed to COVID-19.

In addition, to help ensure your health and safety at our events, we are implementing the following simple but important rules, procedures and guidelines.

  1. All ticket purchases must be made in advance of the performance. There will not be any at-the-door ticket sales (advance purchases can be made remotely up until the time of the individual performances).

  2. Only purchase tickets for people from within your own household. For contact tracing purposes, when purchasing tickets, we require that you divulge the name and individual email and phone numbers for each person in your party. We use the Eventbrite platform to sell tickets. If you did not specify each individual in your group when you made the ticket purchase, please go to your online confirmation and “edit” attendees.

    Please do this. If it turns out that anyone else attending the program this weekend was unwittingly carrying COVID-19, we want to let you know so you can consider being tested.

  3. To help minimize crowding at entrances prior to a performance, audience access to event seating areas will begin 30 minutes prior to each event.

  4. Masks are required of ALL attendees. Especially, please always wear a mask when speaking to event staff (keep in mind, they are on-site all day for both days).

  5. Please follow the instructions and requests of designated Festival staff and volunteers in regards to queuing and seating procedures, maintaining distance from other groups and individuals and covering your face at all times.

In general, please respect the space of others. Keep in mind that for some people, this gathering may represent their first outdoor excursion in a while, and your discretion and forbearance is appreciated.
