The safety of our artists, staff, and guests is our top priority as we return to in-person events in 2022. We will be implementing the following policy for our American Craft Made marketplace in Baltimore to minimize the risk and spread of COVID-19. These policies may be amended closer to the event dates in response to changing public health conditions and local and federal guidelines.

Vaccination Required for Artists and Guests

We are requiring that all of our exhibitors and marketplace guests show proof of a completed COVID-19 vaccination. Proof of vaccination may include a physical card—or a photo of a complete vaccination card—that matches the artist or visitor’s ID and with their final dose dated at least 14 days prior to the event.

What Counts As Vaccination?

At this time, the CDC considers people fully vaccinated two weeks after their second dose of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine, or two weeks after a single dose of the Johnson & Johnson vaccine. The CDC currently recommends that everyone ages 16 and older get a booster shot. In the event that the CDC redefines “fully vaccinated” to include the booster shot, we will reach out to you regarding any changes to our COVID-19 protocol. For the latest CDC vaccine guidelines, click here.

Face Coverings Required

Both guests and artists will be required to wear a face covering within the event venue.


Connect to a COVID-19 vaccine provider in your area through If you’ve been vaccinated but lost your card, find out who to contact here.
