COVID POLICY FOR ALL TICKETED SHOWS*

McMenamins Spanish Ballroom is committed to protecting the health and well-being of music fans, artists, and industry staff. In light of the recent upswing of COVID cases, beginning immediately, all ticketholders age 12 and over must meet one of these conditions for entry to ticketed Spanish Ballroom shows:*

1) Be at least two weeks past receiving their second dose in a two-dose series (Pfizer-BioNTech or Moderna), or a single-dose Johnson & Johnson vaccine. Vaccination card or photo of vaccine card on phone must be provided along with photo ID.
OR

2) Show proof of a negative PCR COVID test within 72 hours preceding the show, along with photo ID. Test must be medically administered. At-home tests not accepted.

Children under 12 are excepted from this policy, but all attendees – including children under 12 -- must wear face masks at all times except when eating or drinking.

Some shows may feature artists that require different safety measures, such as a different time window for testing or only allowing vaccinated people. Please check the language on the specific event description on our website to make sure that you qualify for entry.

Those who do not wish to follow these protocols may receive refunds through their point of purchase no later than Friday, September 17. (Please note: Refunds are no longer available for Waxahatchee, Los Lobos, and Andy Shauf, as they declared COVID policies previous to this venue policy and refund deadlines have expired.)

Here are links to help you get vaccinated, get tested, and replace your lost vaccinated card.

*This policy does not apply to non-ticketed and free shows. However, mask-wearing and all other mandated protocols will be enforced.


We ask that all patrons attending a show in the Spanish Ballroom please enter through the 1st floor lobby off of Commerce St. near the bottom side of the Spanish Steps.
 
Tickets and Will Call are located on the 1st floor in the Bottle Shop & Brewery Tasting Room.

Door times for the Spanish Ballroom are typically 1 hour before the show *This is subject to change* but we would love to invite you to come grab a bite to eat, stay for a drink and check out all the fun our property has to offer preceding any event!
