NEGATIVE TEST OR VACCINATION REQUIREMENT
After seeing first-hand the low transmission data and successful implementation of safety protocols at many festivals recently, alongside the rising vaccination rate of eligible Americans, we feel confident that we can safely update our policy for SKULL & ROSES 2022 that allows for a negative Covid test taken within 72 hours of the event OR proof of full vaccination. Plans and mandates may continue to change. We will continue to update this page with developments and more details closer to the festival.

COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. There is an inherent and elevated risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place or place where people are present and there is no guarantee, express or implied, that those attending the festival will not be exposed to COVID-19.

ATTENDEE PROMISE & HEALTH ACKNOWLEDGEMENT
All attendees agree to follow festival policies (including health and safety policies) and posted instructions while at the festival. According to the CDC, older adults and people of all ages with serious underlying medical conditions may be at higher risk of death or severe illness from COVID-19. All attendees should evaluate their risk in determining whether to attend the festival. By entering the festival, attendees voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 and confirm that they will adhere to local quarantine mandates and the CDC quarantine requirements, available at: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/index.html

The real question is should you bring your dog? Dogs aren’t really crazy about loud environments so as animal lovers we would prefer not. But if you must bring your furry friends here are the rules.

SERVICE ANIMALS: If you have a REGISTERED service animal they are welcome at NO EXTRA CHARGE. YOU WILL BE ASKED TO SHOW PROPER ESA PAPERWORK. You will be asked to show us that you have poop bags, a leash and they MUST REMAIN ON LEASH AT ALL TIMES.  There will be a special area for dogs if you bring them into the arena. 

DOG FAMILY ( NOT A SERVICE ANIMAL):

We love our furry family but what we DO NOT WANT is dogs left in cars, dogs left unattended in campers, etc. If you are camping with us or coming into town and traveling with your furry pal you will have to buy a DOGGIE DAY CARE ticket. You can leave your doggo with us in a proper environment and we also have space for dogs who like their alone time. If you have a crate for your dog you can bring it there too. Please visit the add on section if you want to to buy a ticket for your doggo.

Single day tickets and daily lineups will be released in 2022.
