COVID-19 Vaccination or Test Required

The 2022 Rhode Island Brew Fest is planned to go on scheduled. Updates to policies regarding masking, testing and/or vaccination will be communicated to all attendees directly as well as updated here if any changes occur before the festival on February 5th, 2022.

Current Guidelines

All attendees must provide proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 or a qualifying negative COVID-19 test to gain entry to the 2022 festival. All attendees must wear a mask whenever inside the Rhode Island Brew Fest venue, regardless of vaccination status, except for when actively eating or drinking. These policies are outlined in more detail at covid.ri.gov

Accepted Forms of Proof of Full Vaccination

We will accept the original vaccination card or a digital copy of the vaccination card that can be checked against a valid ID. The CDC defines a person as fully vaccinated two weeks after completion of a two-dose mRNA series or one dose of Janssen vaccine.

Accepted Forms of COVID-19 Tests

We will accept a printout or digital copy of a negative PCR/molecular test (sampled within 72 hours of the event) or a negative rapid/antigen test (sampled within 24 hours of the event) administered by a healthcare professional that includes their name, or the name the administering healthcare facility, and the date of the test as proof. Self-administered at-home rapid/antigen tests will not be accepted.

Thank You

Our policies are in place for the health and safety of our attendees, staff and vendors and will continue to be reviewed and updated on an ongoing basis. Thank you for your cooperation as we look to safely get back to in-person events.

Extreme Weather Policy

Our events are held rain, snow or shine. However, there is always the potential for extreme or severe winter weather conditions. Event organizers will do as much as we can to ensure the experience is as safe as possible. In the event of severe weather, the event may be delayed as race officials consult public safety officers. If there is more than a short delay, if conditions persist, or the forecast calls for extreme weather, we reserve the right to alter or cancel the event. We do not schedule “rain dates”. Any decision to cancel an event is done as an absolute last resort and is made collectively with local risk management, police, fire & rescue, and medical personnel as appropriate. In such situations, there will be NO REFUNDS as registrants accept any such risk of their entry free when purchasing tickets.

Please check the website, our Facebook page, and your email before the festival for any changes or cancellations.
