COVID Update:

Easthampton has issued a mask mandate for indoor spaces and outdoor events with more than 100 people. Masks are required at all times for attendees age 2 and up, including at the event entrance, vendor lines, restrooms, and while walking around the main event space. Masks can be removed when seated at least 6 feet from people outside of your group.

We strongly request that you do not attend Arcadia Folk Festival unless you are fully vaccinated.

Please stay home if you're sick or have been in contact with someone who tested positive for COVID-19.
