Important Safety Information
They are taking safety very seriously. They have a COVID safety plan in place that has been reviewed and approved by Broward County and the City of Fort Lauderdale, and their ability to hold this event in 2021 and in the future depends upon the cooperation of all participants in following these guidelines.

  • If you are experiencing any symptoms of COVID-19 or may have been exposed to someone with COVID-19, please do not attend the event. Visit the CDC’s website for more information about coronavirus symptoms.
  • There will be distanced viewing boxes for each pod of participants during the ceremony and music festival. These boxes accommodate 1-4 people, or 5-10 people. Your group of up to 10 people will need to arrive together and will choose your pod area.
  • Participants will be released to the walk route from their viewing boxes.
  • Participants will need to wear face coverings throughout the event at all times, unless eating or drinking. Stay tuned for details about their “coolest mask” social media contest. Just because we’re covering our faces doesn’t mean we can’t have fun with it!
  • Participants will need to follow social distancing and other health guidelines posted on-site.
  • Hand sanitizer will be provided at the festival and water stops. Please make use of it.
  • Participants should avoid physical contact (hugs, high fives, etc.) with people outside of their group.
  • Failure to comply with safety measures may result in participants being asked to leave the event space.
