Major Programming Changes Regarding COVID-19

Flamework looking like the covid-19 virus when over the torch.

WheatonArts is committed to practicing the proper precautions and protocol to help keep our community, staff, and artists safe and protected from COVID-19.

All of us at WheatonArts send our warmest wishes to you and your families. We are continuing to monitor State and Federal guidelines to mitigate the spread of COVID-19 and are taking the recommended precautions to ensure the safety of our audiences, artists, and staff. All public surfaces will be cleaned regularly throughout the day, following CDC cleaning guidelines. Our staff is also performing temperature checks every day upon arrival.

Please take note of the following:

A modified reopening plan was created for the April through December 2021 season. WheatonArts will be open three days a week, Friday, Saturday, & Sunday, from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. Learn more here. 

2021 onsite events are being either being canceled or modified to a virtual platform based on the state guidelines in place during the planning stage for each event (two to six months in advance depending on the size of the event).

► Virtual modified events currently include: May’s Paperweight Fest 

► Canceled events currently include May’s ECO Fair, June’s Fantasy Faire, July’s Antique & Summer Market, and October’s HalloWheaton.

WheatonArts will continue to monitor the progression of COVID-19 and will make adjustments to this plan as needed. We wish all of you good health!
