Social Distancing Graphic Hello everyone! We are one week away from the first Swingin’ at the Shell concert of the 2020 series! We want to share a few pieces of information based on current executive orders and our upcoming concerts.

Albion is lucky to have an outdoor venue in our historic bandshell at Victory Park with its wide open lawn space and ample parking. Based on past concert attendance, we are confident the attendance at any of the upcoming concerts will be below the 500 person threshold.

We know that people tend to gravitate toward the shade. This year, please consider bringing an umbrella for shade so that we can utilize the entire lawn space. We believe this will allow everyone to maintain six feet distance between households. If you are part of a vulnerable population, we encourage you to park in a spot that allows you to remain in your vehicle and enjoy the performances. With that in mind, we ask concert goers who will sit on the lawn area to please leave closer parking spots open for higher-risk concert goers.

Please wear a face covering when you are moving around the lawn, purchasing concessions, using the restrooms, or in the event you might come into close contact with other individuals. We wholeheartedly believe that everyone who attends any of the upcoming concerts wants to do so in a way that keeps our community healthy. It is everyone’s responsibility to work together and follow the guidelines so that we can enjoy this summer tradition while being safe.

If you are not feeling well, have been exposed to anyone who’s not feeling well, or have any symptoms at all - STAY HOME. It’s just not worth the risk of exposing anyone else.

If you are uncomfortable attending the 2020 performances, for any reason, we understand, respect your decision, and encourage you to stay safe by staying home. We will be ready to welcome you back for the 2021 season.
