An update on Her Festival’s COVID-19 safety protocols at Saddleback Mountain this fall:

As you probably know, throughout the United States, COVID-19 cases are on the rise, largely due to what’s known as the Delta Variant. 90% of all infections are being seen within those who are not vaccinated. There are other cases where those who are vaccinated are experiencing breakthrough cases. Although rare, they are on the rise and certainly something we will be watching in the upcoming weeks.

In response to these recent changes in data and CDC recommendations, in order to continue to provide our services to our guests please note the following updates to our COVID-19 safety protocols. You can access our current COVID-19 safety information on our website:

Effective August 25, 2021 Masks and Proof of Vaccination are Required:

  • All participants are required to provide proof of vaccination prior to arrival
  • Email a photo of your vaccination card to: and bring the proof of vaccination with you. Vaccines must meet the requirements of CDC Guidelines.
    At this time, that list includes all US issued vaccines from Pfizer, Moderna, J&J/Janssen, AstraZeneca
  • Masks are required in all indoor public spaces 

What will remain the same:

  • Masks are not required in outdoor settings 
  • We will continue to maintain the maximum number of participants at 50 
  • Our communal meals will continue with normal seating arrangements. Hand washing/ hand sanitizing is still required before entering the buffet line
  • New HVAC system installed in 2020 filters the air continuously throughout the day at our venue Saddleback Mountain

We will continue to closely monitor changing regulations and best practices for our setting. If we need to bring some additional COVID policies back, we will. For now, we feel that these additional steps of requiring guest vaccinations and masking will help keep everyone safe. Please ask if you have questions or concerns about these policy changes.
