WonderFest and COVID precautions…

We’ve been fielding questions about how we’re going to handle COVID precautions at WonderFest on June 5th and 6th.

First off, WonderFest is located in Kentucky. We’ll be following the rules and protocols of our state for events like ours as best we can. Folks planning to attend should realize that today’s plans, as we post this on May 6th, may become more relaxed as the show date nears. We take our cues from the governor.

  • FACE MASKS will be required in all convention hotel areas.
  • SOCIAL DISTANCING will be handled by monitoring the crowd in the main room and pacing the flow of people if needed. We already have 12-foot wide aisles. Just like at the grocery store, it is up to the individual to respect proper spacing. We suspect that social distancing may be cut to three feet by June—we’ll see.
  • MEETING ROOM SPACES for demos and guest talks will have the chairs spaced apart. We will not have as many simultaneous programs so that we can open up and spread out those we do have.
  • AWARDS: We will NOT be having the usual MODEL CONTEST AWARDS CEREMONY. We are working on an alternate but cool way to present the winners so that we don’t have an overcrowded room/superspreader event.

In closing, we are thrilled to be able to get back together and see everyone IN PERSON. We’re as starved to get out as everyone else. If you’ll bear with us, we hope to make the show safe and fun for all, under the circumstances.
