Charleston Wine + Food has updated its health and safety standards for its 2022 festival, requiring all guests, vendors, staff and talent to provide proof of being fully vaccinated against COVID-19 or provide a negative COVID-19 test, taken within 72 hours of each day of attendance.

“After more than a year apart, we couldn’t be more excited to gather in March 2022. The safety of our community is our top priority as we plan for all the fun that will be had at the ’22 fest. We’re better together, so let’s all do our part to keep each other safe. Together is how we are meant to be,” the festival noted in a Sunday email to attendees.

Other safety measures will also be taken throughout the festival weekend, including heightened sanitation on high-traffic areas, increased hand-washing stations, masks being available (though not required), extra space to spread out and flexible ticket options for passholders.
