Frequently Asked Questions

The 2021 Natural Living Expo is implementing new COVID safety changes to ensure everyone feels safe at the event, while still providing the exceptional expo experience. Masks are optional. As advised by the CDC, Natural Living Expo echoes the advice of the CDC that both fully vaccinated and unvaccinated people should still wear a mask in public indoor settings. Vaccination cards and negative COVID tests are not required for entry into the expo. At this time our evolving safety measures include: fewer booths to provide wider aisles, fewer workshops with 50% capacity, extended show hours on Sunday, masks optional following local regulations, indoor and outdoor dining options, and additional cleaning protocol. Masks will be required only on shuttle busses between the hotel and trade center due to a state mandate requiring masks on all public transportation services. 

For the most current local guidelines please visit: Marlborough Board of Health

To avoid traditional areas of congestion at registration, we encourage purchasing your tickets in advance online. Please do not arrive early, event doors will not open until 9am on Saturday and 9:30am on Sunday, if arriving before that please be prepared to wait outside. 

Workshops are staggered to avoid congestion in the hallways between sessions. All workshops seats are available on a first-come basis. Room capacities are reduced to 50%, please respect event staff as they implement this new safety policy. Plan to arrive 30 minutes before your desired workshop session to secure a seat in the room.
