KFF 2021 COVID-19 Protocols

To Our Attendees, Volunteers, Artists, and Vendors

As the Kerrville Folk Festival Foundation and the Kerrville Folk Festival work to hold events in the midst of the Covid-19 pandemic we want to share with you our Covid related policies and protocols so that you may make informed decisions to protect yourself and others. Click here if you are interested in Frequently Asked Questions about the upcoming festival.

  • Vaccination is required for all attendees 12 and older (including patrons, volunteers, vendors, artists, etc.). Children under 12 must wear a mask outside of their home camp.

  • Volunteers on crews with close contact with the public will be required to wear masks while working and frequently wash their hands with soap or hand sanitizer regardless of their vaccination status.

  • Sanitation stations will be located around the festival grounds and everyone is encouraged to frequently wash their hands with soap and use hand sanitizer.

  • We ask that all on the ranch be mindful of CDC distancing guidelines: https://www.cdc.gov/coronavirus/2019-ncov/prevent-getting-sick/prevention.html

  • Attendees will be offered a “Love My Space” wristband for those who prefer not to be hugged or wish to maintain social distance from others.

  • If you are feeling ill in any way before the festival we respectfully ask that you not attend or if you begin to feel ill during the event that you go home and not stay on the grounds of the festival.


We appreciate your cooperation as we try to protect our Festival family and the Kerrville community.

Details about providing proof of vaccination: In order to attend the festival in October, you must provide proof of full vaccination via email ahead of the event, or you may show proof upon check-in at the festival. If you would like to send it ahead of time, please email a digital copy (scan or photo is fine) to: healthpass@kerrvillefolkfestival.org

For the health and safety of our beloved community, we celebrated KFF virtually in the spring.

On May 29, 2021, direct from Threadgill Theater on Quiet Valley Ranch, we live-streamed a full day of concerts interspersed with artist interviews, home video of KFF through the years, as well as a special one-hour New Folk In-Memoriam feature. You can still check it out here on the KFF Foundation YouTube channel.
