Covid-19 Protocol at Festival of Lights

The safety of our guests, performers, volunteers, and staff is our number one priority. With that in mind, we will be following these guidelines:

  • Proof of vaccination or negative Covid test within 72 hours for everyone 12 and over is required to enter the Festival. It is not required for those under 12 years of age.
  • We will be following state and county mandates on masking.
  • We will have nightly capacity restrictions as well as capacity limits inside the Chapel where the choirs perform.
  • We will not host a petting zoo this year.
  • We will not provide shuttle buses from the overflow lot at the Parkrose/Sumner Station. However, with reduced capacity, we anticipate a lesser need for that lot.
