Boise Pride announced that all attendees are required to provide physical evidence of a COVID-19 vaccination or negative diagnostic test to attend the festival’s events, upcoming on Sept. 10-12. 

After announcing the festival’s return, Boise Pride posted the new health and safety requirement on Aug. 25, about two weeks prior to the event.

Attendees under 12 years of age are excluded from the revised health and safety requirements. 

Regardless of vaccination status, guests are encouraged to wear facial coverings in all venues.

Prior to the event, attendees are encouraged to upload their records of either full vaccination status or a negative COVID-19 test on the Bindle app.

A week before the festival, individuals may pick up their Health Check Wristband starting at 10 a.m. at the approved locations, which will be announced in the coming weeks.

The Boise Pride website features a troubleshooting guide to receiving a vaccination or a COVID-19 test:

“Forgot to test, lost your vax card, or are outside of the 72-hour window? No problem. COVID-19 Rapid Antigen testing will be available on Bannock Street between 8th Street and Capitol Boulevard on September 10. Health Check Wristbands will be issued upon a negative test and will be valid for 72 hours.”
