Vaccination Required for Entry to Blue Strawberry Effective September 1
Since reopening on June 18, 2020, Blue Strawberry has made the safety of our patrons, our staff, and our artists during the COVID-19 pandemic our highest priority. Through our “COVID Careful” policies, we have not only met but consistently exceeded guidelines required by the Health Department of the City of Saint Louis regarding sanitation, use of masks, and physical distancing.
The advent of astoundingly effective, safe and live-saving COVID-19 vaccines has made it possible for us to feel more assured now that we can gather safely. However, vaccines are only effective if they are used.
Therefore, as of September 1, 2021, all patrons, artists, and staff at the Blue Strawberry will be required to show proof of having had at least one shot of a COVID-19 vaccination. Either an original vaccination card, photocopy, or photo on your phone will be accepted. And starting October 1, 2021, all patrons, artists, and staff will be required to show proof of full vaccination. Full vaccination means having received two doses of the Pfizer or Moderna vaccine or one dose of the Johnson and Johnson vaccine, plus a two-week follow up after completion.

We at Blue Strawberry want to do what we can to protect ourselves and one other at this pivotal time. We want to continue to provide a space where people can gather to celebrate wonderful music, great food, refreshing beverages, and each other's company - as free as possible from worry about infection.
Blue Strawberry will honor requests for refunds for already-purchased tickets made as a result of this new vaccination requirement. Requests must be made at least a week before the show, and prior to September 1.
