Proof of vaccination required for Saint Andrews Beer Fest

SAINT ANDREWS – With new restrictions having come into effect this week, proof of vaccination will now be required to attend the craft beer festival happening in Saint Andrews today, Saturday, Sept. 25 from 4 p.m. to 7 p.m. in Centennial Park.

“Proof of vaccination and photo I.D. is required at the door,” states a post on the St. Andrews Beer Fest & Burger Week Facebook page.

“Masks are encouraged in lines and other communal areas.

“Please practice social distancing at all times.”

Proof of vaccination is also required for people to enter any restaurant, including those taking part in the burger festival which has been taking place all week in Saint Andrews in the lead-up to tonight’s beer fest.

In an interview published in the Tuesday, Sept. 21 edition of The Saint Croix Courier festival co-organizer Luke Macdonald said “Depending on provincial regulations, anyone attending may be asked to show proof of vaccinations.”

Shuttles to the Saint Andrews Beer Festival will be available from the W.C. O’Neill Arena, and in the same interview Macdonald asked everyone to be responsible and either stay the night in Saint Andrews or have a designated driver.

“We’re certainly encouraging people to plan for a sober driver or a taxi or plan to stay the night. Be responsible.”
