SEABREEZE JAZZ FESTIVAL EVENT LOGISTICS & COVID-19

By Applying for the 2021 Seabreeze Jazz Festival I, the vendor, acknowledge and accept all risks of attending the event. This includes the possibility of exposure to COVID-19 for my staff and myself.

 

How Seabreeze Jazz Festival is Addressing COVID-19

 

The Seabreeze Jazz Festival will be monitoring suggested protocols from the CDC and Government officials to keep our event SAFE and HEALTHY.

 

This means that as the event approaches, event protocols may be added or changed up to the day of the show to fit the up to date status of safety with COVID-19.

 

Our event will be following CDC recommended guidelines for sanitation and hygiene and we will expect ALL vendors to comply with these guidelines in their booths as well.

 

These requirements and guidelines will be communicated to vendors in advance of the event via email and on the vendor portal, Convention Force.

 

In the CASE of COVID-19 Threat to Public Safety Being Considered Unsafe

 

  1. The Seabreeze Jazz Festival will be planning to go forward with additional safety precautions in place, however, if it is deemed that conditions are too dangerous to public safety the event will be POSTPONED to a later date.
  2. In the case of Event POSTPONEMENT, there will be no vendor or attendee refunds. In addition, if a vendor decides not to attend the 2021 Event after paying their Booth Fees, no refunds will be offered.
  3. Instead of Refunds, the vendor will have CREDIT FORWARD applied to their account on Convention Force. This credit will not expire and will be good for vendor booth payment to the next SJF you choose to Vend.
