Masks are optional and not required for vaccinated patrons. Unvaccinated patrons are asked to wear a mask outside of their pod. Attendees may remove their mask once in their purchased pod. Staff and volunteers will be wearing masks for the comfort and safety of our volunteers and patrons.
A pod is a section of the viewing lawn that seats up to four (4) or six (6) patrons. Each pod is physically distanced from other pods, which allows patrons to enjoy the performance while following physical distancing guidelines. Each 4-person pod is 6’ wide by 8’ deep. Each 6-person pod is 9’ wide by 8’ deep. Your entire party must fit within the boundaries of these pod markings (including but not limited to coolers, chairs, bags, strollers, etc.).
We are asking patrons with blankets to sit in the front of the field, with low chairs immediately behind, and high backed chairs near the rear of the field. Placement is subject to your arrival time as pods are first come first served.
Yes. The pod system has been designed to ensure all patrons are physically distanced, and to maximize the number of individuals who can attend a performance. Similarly, if you have more than four or six people, you must purchase more than one pod.

It will always be the intention of The Grand to hold the show as weather permits. The show may continue through light wind or rain. The Grand management will initiate a rain delay. If the inclement weather does not subside, or the conditions have made the stage unsafe for performers, guests will be asked to attend the rain date (typically the following day), if The Grand is unable to reschedule guests will be refunded their tickets. The Grand management has final say on whether a show must be cancelled.
