In response to recent provincial restrictions, all Farmfair attendees will have to show proof of full vaccination before entering the event.
It’s either that or offer proof of a medical exemption or a privately acquired COVID test.
The move by event organizer Explore Edmonton is in response to provincial restrictions for indoor events and other gatherings put in place last month.
Exhibitors are faced with the same restrictions but with one difference: Those who have not been fully vaccinated will have the option to receive a rapid COVID test on site. If results are negative, they will be given the go-ahead to participate.
