COVID-19 Policy

Following the expiration of the COVID-19 Pandemic Public Health Emergency on May 11, 2023, College of the Atlantic fully rescinded its COVID-19 protocol. As such, Acadia Trad Festival will no longer require staff, faculty, or participants to submit proof of vaccination in order to attend the Festival. However, Acadia Trad Festival strongly encourages all staff, faculty and participants to be fully vaccinated against COVID-19 for the health and safety of all attendees. Furthermore, all staff, faculty and participants should familiarize themselves with the Festival’s internal protocol for what to do in the event of a positive case and must have a plan in place to leave campus if they show symptoms or test positive for COVID-19. You can read our protocols for a positive case of COVID-19 here.

Cancellation Policy

A 50% deposit will be due upon registration. A refund of this deposit, minus $100.00, is refundable by request (here) prior to May 15, 2024.

Balances are due on May 15, 2024.  There are no refunds after May 15, 2024 for any reason, unless a medical contingency will prevent the registrant from attending camp (for which a letter from a medical practitioner or proof of a positive COVID PCI / molecular test are required).

In the event of a medical contingency (either before of after May 15, 2024), once adequate proof is provided, a full refund, minus $100.00, will be processed as soon as possible.

Registrations are transferable to friends or family members after discussing it with the Festival Director.
