Covid-19 Safety Plan

Tacoma Ocean Fest – Covid-safe

Tacoma Ocean Fest is a Covid-safe festival. Our goal is to keep everyone safe and healthy while celebrating, learning about and protecting the ocean. We abide by all current Washington state guidelines for event venues, performers and outside activities. This means we may change some things according to the most recent state guidelines and phases.

Covid-safe practices

At all events, we require and demonstrate:
– masking, social distancing and no-touch exhibits
– attendance caps according to each phase
– one-way pedestrian traffic flows
– extra ventilation for inside spaces
– stanchions keeping audience 20 ft from performers
