DFW Fiber Fest’s Covid-Related Requirements
At this time, we will not be requiring proof of vaccination or masks for entry to our vendor hall. We do encourage the use of masks for those of you shopping and gathering in our vendor hall. Attendees assume their own risk for coming to the event.
For our classroom level, we will have mandatory proof of vaccination and masking requirements for DFW Fiber Fest participants—students, teachers, and volunteers. (Note that we are not the only group that will be holding meetings and classes on the classroom level of the Irving Convention Center and DFW Fiber Fest has no control over those participants.)
Please understand that we have had the entirety of our community members and their health in mind as we have made these decisions throughout this year of planning. It is not our wish to exclude anyone, but we believe that we are making the best, safest decisions based on the information and guidelines provided to us via the CDC and our medical advisors for our teachers, our students, and our community under less-than-ideal circumstances.
Proof of vaccination (either paper cards or an electronic version) will be required to be presented at the time students pick up their bags and name tags at the registration desk.
Masks must be worn over mouth and nose for the entirety of class. Students or teachers needing a break are welcome to step out onto the balcony on the classroom level for some fresh air.
Thank you for understanding that we are doing our best with what we have. If you aren’t vaccinated or cannot wear a mask (and we understand there are valid reasons for different needs and decisions in both cases), we hope that we’ll be able to see your faces in class in 2023!
If you have comments/questions about either of these policies, please direct them to Community@dfwfiberfest.org.
