Covid 19 Information -Please note:
There have been several changes made to help make this year’s 906 Festival a safer place, for both vendors and patrons. In addition to these changes, IT IS IMPERATIVE THAT ANY VENDOR OR PATRON WHO IS EXPERIENCING SYMPTOMS, OR HAS BEEN EXPOSED TO THE VIRUS NOT ATTEND THE FESTIVAL.
The changes are as follows:
• EVERY vendor will provide a table with hand sanitizer at their booth. These tables will be placed in a way that separates customers from the vendor during transactions.
• The 906 Festival layout has been modified to allow more space between booths. This also gives patrons more room to spread out while shopping.
• There will be hand washing/sanitation stations throughout the Park.
• Face covering is suggested while inside the ECA building. Anyone inside is asked to respect social distancing protocol.
