As always, we are taking safety at our event seriously. We are implementing the following measures to promote the health and wellbeing of attendees and staff:


New policies and procedures:

Attendees will self-certify upon entry at the event that they do not have any COVID-19 symptoms, have not recently received a positive COVID-19 test, and have not knowingly been exposed to an individual who has recently tested positive for COVID-19.


How these were determined:

We have been following the COVID cases in Missoula County and reviewing CDC guidelines for event safety. With 61% of Missoula County vaccinated, and the event being outdoors, we believe that the event is safe.


What’s expected of attendees:

Please stay home if you have recently experienced COVID-19 symptoms, have recently been diagnosed with COVID-19, or have recently had contact with a known or suspected COVID-19 case.


Please stay home if you are experiencing any of these symptoms:

  • fever
  • new shortness of breath
  • cough
  • new loss of taste or smell


If you need to stay home because of COVID-19 symptoms, or if you are actively sick with COVID-19, please contact Tell Us Something and we will issue you a refund.


Please wear a face mask when you are not actively eating or drinking.

Please avoid touching your eyes, nose, or mouth while at the event.

If you experience COVID-19 symptoms or test positive for COVID after the event, please notify Tell Us Something via email or phone. We are practicing contact tracing and will notify all ticket holders if anyone reaches out to us in this way.

What to bring:

  • Your ticket! This can be on your phone or printed

Please reply to this email if you have accessibility needs. If you are Deaf, please reply to this email to let us know.


Pack it in pack it out. Please do not leave trash at the event site.


Nourishing Cultures will be on-site providing kombucha for sale. The several other food trucks that I invited were unable to make the event, so there will be no additional food trucks.


There are 3 entrances to the event. Please check-in at one of the pop-up structures at the event perimeter. After verifying that you have purchased a ticket and that you are not experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms, guests will be given an event wristband and allowed to enter the event space.


The below diagram shows roughly what the event space will look like. NOT TO SCALE.


We look forward to seeing you there!


Thank you!
