mitigating the spread of Covid-19 

Due to the ongoing circumstances surrounding the Delta Variant (and even newer variants) of Covid-19, proof of vaccination or a recent negative PCR test result (72 hours) are needed to enter the Music Box Village. Additionally, we also encourage you to practice safe distancing and to consider wearing a mask when in close proximity to our staff or other guests.

Given the current situation we feel that this is the best way to keep our crew, staff, performers and community healthy. We will be reassessing as new information becomes available. Our primary aim is safety based on adherence to CDC guidelines and local mandates.
