SPRING, FALL & WINTER
OUR FALL SHOW HAS BEEN RESCHEDULED TO
ROUND TOP, TX… A consortium of show organizers, vendors and landowners has been in close communication with county and city officials; the Fayette County Office of Emergency Management will monitor the ever-evolving situation closely for any future actions to be taken. The action is aimed at positioning the event for safety and success – and potentially reducing the likelihood that it will be canceled.
Local officials, including the county judge, mayors and community leaders are aware of the amount of planning and effort it takes to organize each show. In light of the spring show being cancelled, the extra attention this fall is aimed at achieving a safe environment should the event take place. All will work closely with local, regional, and state public health experts to evaluate the data and the capability of local healthcare providers.
With a long-standing history, each show venue is individually owned and operated – and sets its own open and close dates in the spring and fall.
SAFETY MEASURES TO BE IN PLACE
In a spirit of collaboration, venues have agreed to adopt enhanced health standards for their individual shows to include mandatory masks for shoppers and dealers; shopping set up to ease the ability to remain socially distant; capacity limits according to state standards at the time; and enhanced hand-sanitizing facilities.
The Compound is pleased to join with other major Venues in this endeavor, including: Marburger Farms, The Big Red Barn, Blue Hills, The Arbors, Excess, the Round Top Square Fair, Bader Ranch and select Warrenton venues including Bar W, Granny McCormick’s Yard, Lone Star Gallery, Campbell Building, County Line North, The Venue and the Marketplace.
The Compound encourages shoppers to Stay Safe and shop with these shows who are committed to helping you do so.
