AVL Scarefest Vaccine/Mask Policy

TL;DR: We will require a vaccination + at least one booster shot to attend, and we will be checking vaccination cards prior to entry.

Remembering the Mythos

It’s been two years since the last AVL Scarefest, and it is entirely possible that in that time you may have forgotten some of the things that make us special.

This is one of our most commonly asked questions, so we’ve created a little graphical display to help clear things up: Hopefully that’s pretty self-explanatory, but if not…you can picture the Assembly Inn like a beautiful, austere swan while
