Blue Ribbon Events have become very popular with social distancing policies and procedures in place for the safety of patrons and artists. With dozens of successful COVID socially distanced events since June, our primary concern is to present art while keeping artists and patrons safe. In a world where everything has been cancelled, there is a way for us to move forward safely while supporting the arts. Hand sanitizing stations, social distancing and directional flow are utilized. Come for the art, stay for the beach!
