SAFETY first AT YELLOW BARN

Yes, we are returning home to the Big Barn!

After extensive conversations with our medical advisors and careful review of guidance from the CDC and our state officials, we have designed a plan to increase safety and alleviate concern, making it possible to once again immerse ourselves in music. First and foremost, we will be requesting proof of Covid-19 vaccination, and encourage advance ticket purchases to facilitate this extra step. In addition, we will be asking you to wear masks while inside the Big Barn. We have increased the distance between rows to make it easier to move around the hall safely, which means there are only 60 seats for audience members (50% of normal capacity). Lastly, we have strategically placed commercial-grade air purifiers and hand sanitizing stations throughout the building. If you have any questions or concerns, please do not hesitate to contact us at (802) 387-6637 or info@yellowbarn.org.

(PS: Yes! There will still be ice cream and blueberries at intermission!)
