A message from our Founder
March 15, 2020
Dear BAMS Fam,
The health and safety of our staff, performers, and audience are of great importance to BAMS Fest. In the wake of the coronavirus (COVID-19), Governor Charlie Baker has limited upcoming gatherings of 250 or more people and we want to update you on what this means for BAMS Festival. As of right now, this year’s festival will go on as planned unless instructed otherwise by the City of Boston. As the status of COVID-19 changes daily, our team is monitoring the situation closely with the support of elected officials and the Department of Public Health.
As a reminder, please practice the following everyday preventive measures: stay home when sick, cover coughs and sneezes, wash hands frequently for 20 seconds with soap and water, and frequently clean touched surfaces. These practices can help contain and prevent the virus from spreading.
Over the past three years, we've worked to create programming that truly embodies the thriving arts and cultural community that Boston has to offer and look forward to continuing this impactful work.
