How it Works


Health & Safety

The easing of Covid-19 health and safety restrictions by Governor DeWine is indeed good news. We continue to keep the health and safety of everyone — guests, musicians, staff, and volunteers — as our first priority and intend to continue to implement protocols and procedures to ensure that our concert experience is safe and enjoyable. All protocols are in accordance with the guidelines from the State of Ohio and Summit County health department, and in consultation with the Cleveland Clinic.

Clean Spaces

Comprehensive, continuing, and consistent cleaning procedures are in place throughout Blossom Music Center.

Masks & Face Coverings are Recommended

Guests who have not been vaccinated are required to wear a mask.

Socially distanced seating

  • To ensure the comfort and safety of our guests, capacities in the Pavilion will be limited.
  • On the Lawn, our guests will be encouraged to maintain 6’ distance between parties.
  • Pavilion ticket holders may picnic on the grounds prior to performances but will be asked to be seated in their Pavilion seats for the performance. Lawn ticket holders will not be admitted to the Pavilion, as general admission seating for Lawn patrons is not available.
