A FULLY VAXXED FEST

We’re so excited to gather in-person this year with our incredible On Air Fest community of storytellers, listeners, and audio enthusiasts. It’s important to us that we are able to convene as safely as possible, keeping the health of our festival attendees, talent, and staff in mind.

Therefore, On Air Fest 2022 will require that all attendees be vaccinated against COVID-19.

All vaccinations must be completed by 2/10/22—at least two weeks before the festival. For vaccinations that require two rounds (i.e. Moderna, Pfizer), you must have completed both rounds of the vaccine.

Ahead of the festival, all attendees will be required to have their vaccination status verified via CrowdPass. The app will send you a screening form. After you complete the form, the app will generate a unique QR code that festival staff will scan when you enter the event. After vaccination status has been verified, attendees will be given wristbands which will allow them to come and go freely throughout the day’s programming. If you do not complete the Crowd Pass application, you will not be allowed to enter the festival.

This policy will be updated to reflect any changes to CDC/NYS COVID-19 guidelines. Ticket holders will be emailed immediately with any updates.
