    Health & Safety


    All guests will be required to pass through a vaccination checkpoint located in the Hall of Nations before entering the event. Once you pass through the vaccination checkpoint, you will be permitted to make your way to registration also located in the Hall of Nations
    Proof of full vaccination against COVID-19 is required to attend all indoor performances and events at the Kennedy Center.
    Children under 12 years of age and patrons with a medical condition or a closely-held religious belief that prevents vaccination must provide proof of a recent negative COVID-19 PCR test to attend an indoor performance.

    The October 1st broadcast on PBS will be a moment to share this important milestone with the world. I hope you will tune in at 9 p.m. ET on PBS, PBS.org, and the PBS video app to relive all of the wonderful performances again!
