To ensure the safety of guests and our community, masks will be required inside The Nia Building. Masks are also encouraged outside when social distancing isn’t possible. Hand sanitizer will be available throughout the event, and some free masks will be distributed at the tour registration desk. Though there will be a limited number of spaced-out chairs in front of the stage, people are also encouraged to sit outside the tent — remember to bring a blanket or chair so you can relax.

Your entry constitutes your consent to being photographed, filmed and/or otherwise recorded and acknowledging that the use of such photography, filming and/or recording in media relations, publications, displays, advertisements, websites, social media platforms and for any purpose related to public education and information.
