Health and Safety Information - COVID-19 Safety Precautions

We are excited to host the Tumwater Artesian Brewfest this year and want to make it the most fun - and safest - event possible! Here are answers to some questions we've received regarding the safety precautions that will be in place. 

  • Masks and Vaccination Cards: We will not be requiring masks or proof of vaccination to enter the event. However, anyone who chooses to wear a mask may absolutely do so (when not eating or drinking of course). 
  • Brewers and spacing within the event: You will find fewer brewers on site this year, they will be much more spread out, and we will utilize more of our large event space than normal.  

We want to assure everyone that we are taking every precaution to protect our attendees, as well as our brewers, and the rest of our staff. We are in frequent contact with our County Health officials and they have helped us plan this year’s event and layout.  We will also offer additional handwashing stations throughout the event. We are expecting crowds to be somewhat normal, maybe slightly smaller, and with fewer brewers so that distancing will be more easily achieved.

If you have additional questions or concerns, you may reach out to staff directly via email

Thank you!
