In accordance with the latest State of California COVID regulations, there will be no vaccination, testing or masking requirements at SKULL & ROSES 2022. This policy is issued directly from the Fairgrounds, which is a State-owned and operated facility. At our maximum projected attendance, we will still be at less than 30% of the arena’s capacity , so there is plenty of room for one to social distance and still enjoy the show. Masks and masking are most certainly welcome – especially on Mardi Gras Sunday.  (NOTE: All previous references to “Bindle” in regards to proof of vaccination – No Longer Apply).

The event shall be presented in accordance with applicable public health conditions as of the date of the event, which may change at any time as determined by federal, state or local government agencies or instrumentalities, artists or the promoter; such requirements may include, without limitation, changes to capacity, attendance procedures and entry requirements, such as proof of vaccination and/or negative COVID-19 test, and other protective measures such as requiring attendees to wear face coverings. If any ticket holder does not comply with any laws, mandates, health orders or directives, promoter or event terms, conditions or rules, then the promoter or event operator may refuse admission to the event or require the ticket holder to leave the venue and such ticket holder will not be entitled to a refund.
