SAFETY AT NCFF

SAFETY PROTOCOLS

We recognize that COVID is not going away anytime soon, but we are committed to safety and providing something fun for our community. We are doing everything in our power to ensure our festival happens and that the health and safety protocols that we are implementing will create a safe environment for everyone at NC Freedom Fest.

All festivalgoers are encouraged to wear masks at this years event. We realize that we will be outside, but do ask that when safe distances cannot be maintained that you have a mask on-hand that you can use. In the case that you do not bring one, and would like one – disposable masks will be available at the Information Station located at the Hub.

We ask that all festivalgoers maintain safe distances between one another at the festival to keep this a safe, fun event for everyone. When safe distances cannot be maintained, we do ask that you wear a mask. Masks will be available at the Information Station located at the Hub.

Hand Sanitizer & Hand Washing Stations will be readily available throughout the entire festival footprint. Please do you part and keep your hands clean!

The Kids Zone, sponsored by Goldsboro Pediatric Dentistry & Orthodontics, and provided by Lamm Events, will have Hand Sanitizer at the entrance to each element. They also will be continuously spraying each element with a safe disinfectant to ensure the safety of all enjoying the Kids Zone. In the Kids Zone, there will also be numerous portable restroom facilities and hand wash stations.
