COVID-19 Health & Safety Protocols

Your health and safety at the fair is our guiding priority. This year, Independent will take place at a newly renovated one level venue. This allows for an unrestricted circulation plan, outdoor food and beverage terrace, state of the art MERV-13 air purification standard and contactless ticketing and admission. 

In New York City, government mandates have been lifted for events in our category under 5,000 attendees. We will still be implementing protocols for the comfort of our community and operate at museum style capacity.

We’d like to make you aware of the criteria for visiting the fair this year:

Health Screening
All guests will be required to wear masks, present proof of vaccination at the door to gain entry to the fair, temperature checks will also be conducted. PCR tests will not be valid for entry.

Please bring your government issued ID for identification to verify your health screening. 
Guests that cannot meet the above criteria will not be permitted to enter the venue.
We will continue to revise our protocols to reflect the most current city, state, and federal guidelines.
