Many changes have been made to protect staff and patrons

plenty of room to spread out.
The concert field has been expanded to accommodate
two outdoor stages and room to practice social distancing.
Ample porta-johns, wash stations, and sanitizer are provided,
as well as staff to keep them clean.
Vendors are spread out on the perimeter of the concert field.
