In accordance with local guidelines, Treefort is lifting entry requirements for Treefort 10 on March 23-27, 2022. There will be no vaccination or testing requirements to attend and face masks will be optional at Treefort 10. 

Treefort is committed to keeping all traveling artists as safe as possible while at Treefort so they may continue their tours. Treefort encourages all attendees (passholders, performers, staff, volunteers, everyone) to: 

  • Get a full vaccination & booster prior to attending the festival.
  • Have a face mask handy at all times.
  • Wear a mask properly when required, over both the nose and mouth. Any event that’s requesting a mask requirement will be marked on schedule and with on-site signage.
  • Exercise good hygiene, such as frequently washing or sanitizing your hands.
  • If you’re experiencing symptoms, please test and/or stay home.
  • Adhere to our Treefort Health Pledge (below).

Treefort will continue to offer free vaccinations, testing, and symptom screening on site at Treefort 10.

HOW DID WE COME TO THIS DECISION

We are all part of the Boise community and collectively we all want to keep our community safe. We’ve watched numbers in Idaho and the surrounding states drop significantly. So much so, when the City of Boise announced on 3/5/22 they were dropping all mandates, including those in schools, we dropped ours as well.

Ada County has been designated as a “low risk” community by the CDC, coupled with conversations with artists and management prior to announcing, we felt comfortable following the City’s lead and remove all entry requirements.

We’ve been transparent all along that our COVID protocols could change and would change with guidance from health and city officials, just like they changed a month before Treefort 9 (Sept. 2021) and two weeks before Treefort 9 (March 2020). Additionally, we’ve always refunded tickets, unlike many festivals and other pass holder type events. If you are unable or uncomfortable attending Treefort for whatever reason, we will refund your money, no questions asked. You may email tickets@treefortmusicfest.com

TREEFORT HEALTH PLEDGE

We ask that you not attend if any of the following is true for you or anyone in your party:

  • Within 14 days before attending the festival you have tested positive, or been exposed to someone who has tested positive for, COVID-19;
  • Within 48 hours prior to attending the festival, you have experienced symptoms of COVID-19 (e.g., a fever of 100.4F or higher, cough, shortness of breath or difficulty breathing, chills, repeated shaking muscle pain/achiness, headache, sore throat, loss of taste or smell, nasal congestion, runny nose, vomiting, diarrhea, fatigue or any other symptoms associated with COVID-19 identified by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention);
  • Within 14 days prior to attending the festival, you have traveled to any international territory identified by federal or applicable state or local governments as being subject to travel or quarantine advisories due to COVID-19.

Treefort supports individual efforts and personal responsibility in combating COVID-19 and reserves the right to revoke or suspend access to anyone in connection with this Health Pledge in service of the health and safety of its attendees and participants.

COVID-19 WARNING

COVID-19 is an extremely contagious disease that can lead to severe illness and death. According to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention, senior citizens and guests with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable. There is an inherent and elevated risk of exposure to COVID-19 in any public place or place where people are present and there is no guarantee, express or implied, that those attending the festival (or any part of it) will not be exposed to COVID-19.

By attending Treefort Music Fest, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19.

Let’s help keep each other healthy! Get a vaccine!
