About this Event

The summer of 2021 marks EIGHT years since Michael W. Smith invited his friends to join him in his hometown for a weekend of music and activities. It's time for a reunion, kind of like a big family reunion. A FRIENDS REUNION.

The FRIENDS REUNION is going to take place in the summer of 2021 and all of you are invited to join! The event will be 3 days and 2 nights of music and fun like only Michael can host in his hometown.

SAFE-EVENT / COVID-19 SAFETY DURING THE WEEKEND:

  • First, we want you to know that in October of 2020 we were able to host an event with MWS & Friends and followed these same guidelines successfully - so we have experience hosting an event.
  • By May 15, we will announce and post the full plan for the event, including any rules and/or requests that we will ask participants to follow to help us keep all guests safe during the event. While we can't predict the status of vaccines or state rules / laws it is our hope and prayer that by May 15, 2021 our attendees will be able to have less concerns.
  • Most activities and concerts during the event are being scheduled in outside areas with fresh air available throughout.
  • Temperature checks: We will be used upon arrival to all venues / locations during the event on Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. Guests with a temperature of 100.4 or higher will not be able to enter the venue / grounds for that days event unless they have a documented medical condition and letter from a licensed physician that explains the temperature result.
  • Masks: While it is our hope that masks will not be necessary, and we do not anticipate being required to ask guests to wear them while outdoors, we do reserve the right to make this request if it is deemed necessary by government rules. It is also our hope that masks are not necessary to wear indoors during the event, attendees should plan on that need if events that we host must be moved inside due to any inclement weather - however if deemed necessary in indoor settings we reserve the right to require a mask in order to attend an indoor activity. Guests are WELCOME to wear masks any time during the event based on their own personal needs or wishes.
  • Event Attendance Limit: The initial plan for this event was for us to host up to 800 guests at Michael's farm, that number has been cut in half in order to allow us to create spaces and concert experiences that allow for recommended distances between various guest groups if required.
  • Hand Cleaning / Hand Sanitizer Stations: We will be providing ample amounts of hand cleaning and hand sanitizer stations around the event grounds on each day so all guests will have access to those when needed. This does not replace our request that guests should bring along their own for their personal use, but we will be providing areas for our attendee needs.
  • We are confident that the processes we will follow for the event will allow all guests to enjoy the event in as safe of an environment as possible.
  • We will provide seating for the event in a way that allows guests to "distance" as you feel necessary.
