Moss Rock Festival is taking several precautions to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 at the Festival, November 5-6, 2022.
  • IMPROVED SANITATION & PORTALETS: The festival has taken great care to increase sanitation and promote good hygiene at the Moss Rock Festival. MRF has hand sanitizing stations readily available throughout the venue, in addition to a hand washing station with soap and running water provided in the cafe location at the site.
  • FESTIVAL LAYOUT & SOCIAL DISTANCING: Artists’ booths are spread out to promote social distancing, as are tables at lounges and cafe settings. Directional traffic will be encouraged. Guests are asked to be mindful of crowds in artists’ booths. If it seems like a booth is too crowded, guests are kindly asked to be patient and wait your turn. Also, some booths may require a mask to enter, which will be noted at the booth.
