Alongside our venue, the Metropolitan Pavilion, we’re committed to making your fair visit as safe as possible. We aim to deliver the art-filled and fun Affordable Art Fair NYC Fall experience you know and love, while maintaining compliance with the protocols and mandates of New York City and New York State health departments, the CDC, and the WHO, following their guidance on indoor gatherings. As we get nearer the fair and we have access to more information, our Safe Fair Policy will be updated accordingly.
Please note in accordance with the Key to NYC, all people 12 and older are required to show proof they have received at least one dose of a COVID-19 vaccine authorized for emergency use by the FDA or WHO.
Top things to know
Please make sure you have read and understood these measures before your visit. In the interest of everyone’s safety, ticket holders who don’t follow these guidelines or fail to present the required documents will unfortunately not be allowed into the fair.
Visitors 12 years old and younger:
• Parent/adult residing in the same household attending with a minor must fill out a self-assessment form on behalf of the minor and will be responsible for them.
• Minors must pass a temperature check (performed by Met Pav security guard) upon entering the venue and before their ticket is scanned.
• Minors must wear a mask at all times and observe social distancing.
On arrival at the Metropolitan Pavilion, our staff will be checking your temperature. If you have a fever (100.4° F / 38° C or greater), unfortunately we cannot allow you to enter the fair.
In addition, all attendees must complete a short self-assessment questionnaire with a dedicated front door staff member after passing the temperature check and before entering the venue. Don’t worry, this will only take a few minutes. Of course, throughout your visit, you’ll be required to wear a mask and maintain social distancing.
