As part of the larger Bard College Community, our driving principle is to operate with a duty of care for all our—artists, audiences, students, and staff alike.

In order to share performances with as many audience members as possible, we ask that you read the following information and commit to participating in our community of care.

Protocols may change. Please refer back to this page and to Fisher Center email communications for the most up-to-date guidance and policies. We will continue to assess our COVID protocols and guidelines, as well as consistently monitor new developments, recommendations, and mandates from the CDC and the New York state government.


While we understand that there are varying levels of audience expectations when it comes to safety protocols, we appreciate your understanding that Bard College and the Fisher Center have carefully reviewed and implemented these policies with the intent to be adaptable and compliant, regardless of any new waves or variants, minimize risk, and allow for the continuation of the festival throughout the summer while keeping our artists, audience, staff, and greater Bard community of students and faculty safe.

If you have any questions or concerns, please feel free to reach out to the Fisher Center Health Safety team at fchealthsafety@bard.edu.
