Health + Safety Information

Functional Fabric Fair is closely monitoring changes in local, state, and federal guidelines to update our health and safety protocols. Our guidelines will continue to evolve and we will share updates regularly.

Updated August 18, 2021


Effective August 13, 2021, Oregon adopted the updated CDC Mask Guidance. At this time, in line with state and local regulations, all individuals are required to wear a face covering while attending Functional Fabric Fair. We are monitoring this closely and will continue to adjust our face covering requirements to align with state, local, and venue requirements at the time of the event.

Functional Fabric Fair has worked closely with The Oregon Convention Center to implement cleaning and sanitization standards that meet or exceed the recommendations of the CDC. It is the responsibility of everyone to maintain personal hygiene, including washing your hands frequently. 


We have adjusted our layout and implemented exhibitor guidelines with capacity management and physical distancing in mind. Please follow all floor, directional and distance markings, and signage.


Operational adjustments may occur throughout the event. Please adhere to all signage and direction from all staff, including our Safety Ambassadors.
