COVID-19 Policy

Beginning in April, proof of vaccination or a negative covid test will no longer be required to attend an event. Masks are optional.

Please note, some artists may still require stricter policies such as proof of vaccination or masking, and we will honor those requests on a show-by-show basis. We will also keep an eye on Berrien County's transmission rates, and may add back either parts of this safety protocol over time as the situation warrants.

We are grateful to every one of you who have cooperated with our check in procedures at the door and willingly wore a mask during a show, which has allowed us to present over fifty shows safely since September when our policy first went into effect. We appreciate you for navigating with us through a challenging time and we are excited to welcome all our guests to the theater for a One and Only Acorn Show soon!

Thank you again, and see you at the theater!


With the purchase of tickets and attendance at our events, you and any guests voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19 and agree not to hold The Acorn Center for the Performing Arts, the venue where the concert is located, or any of its affiliates, directors, officers, employees, agents, contractors, or volunteers liable for any illness or injury.

Thank you for your understanding and support of our nonprofit organization!


Q: What documents do I bring with me to the theater?
A: For events through April 1, plan ahead and bring: Proof of vaccination can be your official card or a photo or copy of your vaccine card along with a photo ID. A photo on your phone is accepted. Alternatively, proof of a negative COVID-19 PCR test taken within 72 hours of the performance start time, or a negative COVID-19 antigen test taken within 24 hours of the performance start time. Home tests are not accepted.

Q: How can I get vaccinated for COVID-19?
A: Please protect yourselves, your loved ones and your community. To locate vaccination clinics and resources in your area, please visit www.vaccines.gov.

Q: Where can I get tested for COVID-19?
A: Many area pharmacies offer testing for COVID-19, such as Rite Aid, Walgreens and CVS. The Berrien County Health Department lists additional testing resources on their website. Be sure to inquire about the type of test being administered (PCR, antigen) and how long to expect to wait before getting your results.
