COVID-19 SAFETY MEASURES: 

We will be changing what we’ve done in previous years and adding the following safety measures:

  • Dog walk cancelled: unfortunately, we will not be hosting our annual dog walk this year. However, we want to encourage community members to show us how they #Bark2020 by sharing photos of their pets on walks or in flashy neon gear with this hashtag - or even just any old cute pet photo will do, too! Feel free to tag your pets in the months leading up to the event and day-of. We will share as many of your photos as we can on our Instagram stories and in a post-event photo album on Facebook.
  • Staggered entrance times: to encourage social distancing and contact tracing, we will have staggered entrance times. Community members can select their preferred time slot when purchasing tickets online. Purchasing tickets before the event as opposed to day of helps to avoid overcrowding and ultimately keep you safe.
  • One-way traffic pattern: we will apply a one-way traffic pattern throughout our parking lot and the event space. Traffic flow will be easily identifiable with the help of signs and maps. Our amazing volunteers will also be on site to answer any questions you may have about where to go and how to get there.
  • Vendor spacing: as usual, we will have a variety of food trucks and vendors for you to enjoy! The difference this year is our vendors will be spaced at least 8’ apart to avoid overcrowding.
  • Wearing masks: All our staff, volunteers and vendors will be wearing masks.  We will be asking all our guests to wear masks, too, and we will have masks available for purchase at the event. WEARING A MASK KEEPS EVERYONE SAFE AND KEEPS OUR DOORS OPEN.
  • Social distancing circles for public areas: to help set clear boundaries while encouraging close contact between families and friends, we will have social distancing circles marked off so groups can safely eat, drink, and hang out together. These areas will be listed on signs and posters throughout the grounds
