PRAIRIE OAK PRINCIPALS: -Community Inclusion and Participation. It takes a village! -Whole Self Health. Meet our social and mental health needs with music and friends while keeping safe during this pandemic. -Leave no trace. Keeping the property and facilities clean and better than we found them. -Connect to nature. Take this time to feel the wind, hug an oak, watch the stars, and howl with the coyotes.
HEALTH AND SAFETY: -Do whatever Dr. Hinshaw says. -Attendance will be capped at 100 people or less, dependent on guidelines. -Keep your blankets, chairs, and dancing parts 6ft away from others. -Wear a masks when within 6ft of others, or more if you are a moist speaker. -Do not share food or drink. -Show your love with a wink, a wiggle, a wag or some other way. Hugs and hive-fives are so 2019. -Stay home if you are feeling sneezy or weezy. -Keep your hands clean, your jokes dirty, and sanitize surfaces when you're done. We decided to host this mini-fest since so many other activities and festivals have had to be cancelled. However, we make this a one-day event or cancel completely if COVID case numbers rise or health guidelines change.
HELP MAKE IT HAPPEN Festival goers are asked to pay $50/person. Kids under 12 are free. These fees pay our artists during this difficult time. Any person unable to pay is invited to message us for an exception. We are also looking for volunteers to help with things and to lead workshops! Message Nathalie if you are interested.
More details and options to get involved coming soon! Thanks Oak
