Keeping you safe.

We’re closely following guidelines established by regional authorities to keep you and your family safe during your BellFest experience on New Year's Day. Your wellness is our first priority.

  • We ask that you maintain social distancing to keep at least 6 feet apart from other groups and those not in your household.
  • All festivalgoers are asked to wear a mask when near others, inside structures, or moving around. Please bring your own mask and follow all applicable city, county, and state guidelines.
  • It may be chilly in your area on New Year’s Day. Bundle up! Wear warm and comfortable attire.
  • Walking paths and grassy lawns may be slippery or uneven, so please use caution when finding that perfect place to cozy-up and listen to the bells. 

An inherent risk of exposure to COVID-19 exists in any public place where people are present. 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 anyone with underlying medical conditions are especially vulnerable.

By attending an event hosted by the National Bell Festival, you voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19. You are also affirming that you are healthy and have not exhibited any symptoms of COVID-19 in the 14 days before the event. Symptoms include fever (100.4 degrees or higher), cough, shortness of breath, chills, nausea, diarrhea, loss of taste, sore throat, or muscle aches. If you feel sick, are exhibiting one or more of these symptoms, or have any signs of illness, please stay home.

Similarly, if you are at higher risk for severe illness, or are in any way uncomfortable venturing out where groups of people may be present, please stay home.
