*HEALTH & SAFETY
It’s been over two years since we gathered together to experience the joy that is Rancho Family Fest. We’ve truly missed the music and your smiling faces, and look forward to reconnecting and revitalizing. Together. Again.
Some things will be different this year, so please read all of the information below BEFORE purchasing your tickets so you can make an informed decision. Much remains the same: Great live music, a Taste of Rancho Santa Margarita with our food vendors, business vendors, the Kid Zone, and the Beer & Wine Garden. Did we mention that The Tijuana Dogs will headline the event on Sunday night, October 10?
Our most important role as the producer of Rancho Family Fest is to provide a safe environment during Rancho Family Fest Weekend, where the overall health and safety of the community remains our top priority. We are implementing the following policies to protect from the spread of COVID-19 and continue to work alongside health and safety experts as well as local and state officials to create a safe festival experience.
We’re capping ticket sales at 10,000 to ensure there’s plenty of room for people to spread out at Rancho Family Fest and roam. Make sure you purchase your tickets in advance!
At the present time, we are NOT requiring attendees of Rancho Family Fest 2021 to provide proof that you are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (ie., that you have received your final vaccine dose more than 14 days prior to Rancho Family Fest) or proof of a negative COVID-19 test within 72 hours of attending Rancho Family Fest.
Masks are encouraged regardless of vaccination status. We recommend that you wear a mask when social distancing isn't possible, following CDPH Guidance for Face Coverings. Complimentary masks will be available on site upon request.
If you want to wear a mask, by all means, wear a mask. We will not tolerate bullying anyone because of their choice (or bullying of any kind), we are all in this together.
If you are eligible to get vaccinated and desire to be vaccinated, by all means, get vaccinated.
We have implemented a cap on ticket sales as a means to limit attendance at Rancho Family Fest 2021, so as to ensure that we will not have a crowd greater than 10,000 attendees. For an Outdoor Setting such as Rancho Family Fest, a crowd greater than 10,000 attendees would be a “Mega Event” under CDPH Guidelines, and vaccine verification or negative testing proof would be specifically recommended.
Mega Events are considered higher risk for COVID transmission because:
The State of California strongly recommends that guests at “Mega Events” be fully vaccinated or obtain a negative COVID-19 test prior to attending the event.
California’s requirements and recommendations for negative testing / vaccine verification will be in place effective September 20, 2021 through November 1, 2021. The state will assess conditions by October 15, 2021, to determine whether updated requirements or recommendations are needed beyond November 1, 2021.
* Policy is subject to change in the event of changes in requirements established by the City of Rancho Santa Margarita, County of Orange or State of California. Please check www.rsmchamber.org often for updates.
