2021 Festival COVID Update
We are so excited to hear that so many of you are planning to attend the festival this year! Here is a list of the safety measures we are implementing to help keep everyone safe, along with a heads up about a few things that we will not be offering this year due to safety concerns:
*Masks will be required for all guests in buildings and common areas. Masks will be required at all times for staff and vendors.
*We will have staff members dedicated to sanitation and cleaning during the festival.
*All buildings will be one-way foot traffic.
*Seating in all buildings will follow current Indiana distancing guidelines as used by restaurants. Additional outdoor seating will be available this year!
*We will be restricting the number of people in the store at any given time to allow for proper distancing.
*All samples will be served in single use, pre-portioned containers.
*There will be ways to buy syrup without entering the store, stay tuned for updates!
*We are installing 30 automatic hand sanitizer dispensers around the farm.

*Vendors will set up in a distanced way and will be setting up their tents in such a way that allows for open air flow.
*All vendors will provide hand sanitizer at their booths for your use.
*In the kitchen we will not be serving pork chops or dessert, in order to limit the number of workers that are needed in the kitchen.
*We will not be serving maple tea by the evaporator. A variation of maple tea will be available in our food booth.
*There will be no straw maze or candle dipping and the free outdoor kid’s games will look different (watch for a dedicated post about this soon!).
