Covid-19 Update

As we get back to enjoying live music and hosting national touring artists, we are beginning to encounter artist requests for a variety of different COVID-19 precautions.

At Knitting Factory, we have made the decision to honor the requests from touring artists that allow them to feel comfortable in our venue, while putting our staff back to work, keeping patrons safe, and for the show to go on.


COVID-19 precautions will differ on a show-by-show basis and may include the following:
  • Proof of vaccination OR negative test within 48 – 72hrs. (photo and digital copies will be accepted)
  • Mask requirement when not eating or drinking.

COVID-19 policies will be posted per show on socials, our website, and emailed to ticket holders.

We respect that this brings with it many emotions and differing opinions.  The decisions made have not been easy.

We can’t wait to get back to normal, but in the meantime, we ask for your patience and understanding as we navigate the ever-changing landscapes of the pandemic as an independent music venue.

Questions about how to get vaccinated?


Lost your vaccination card?
The CDC said if someone lost their vaccination card, or doesn’t have a copy, they should contact their vaccination provider directly to get another.

If someone is unable to contact their vaccination provider directly, the CDC suggests they contact their state health department’s immunization information system (IIS). Vaccination providers are required to report COVID-19 vaccinations to their IIS and other related systems.
