Updated Covid Precautions and Safety Measures
  • We will follow the governor's order that allows 25% occupancy not to exceed the capacity limits identified within the ND Smart Restart Large Gathering Tiered Capacity document. With the areas we are using, that is a limit of 1000 in the space for the Dakota Holiday Market and Sweet Shoppe and up to 600 in the space for the other events.
  • Hand sanitizer and masks will be available.
  • Signs will be posted informing attendees about the Governor's Mask mandate which has exceptions for children under age 5, and for individuals with a medical or mental health condition or disability that makes it unreasonable to wear a mask. The order further stipulates that masks can be removed when consuming food and beverages.
  • During the Concert in the Trees, we have a professional sound person so the singers on stage can be a safe distance from the audience.
  • Anyone who has symptoms or feels uncomfortable should not attend, but consider participating in the Concert in the Trees and Auction from home.
