Health & Safety

health + safety

All ticket holders should have received an email with information on how to upload their proof of COVID-19 vaccination. If you did not receive this email and you purchased a ticket or are a guest at a purchased table, please email, and we will send you the information.


The health and safety of our guests, staff and community is our top priority at NIMBASH. In partnership with local health officials, we have established COVID-19 preventive protocols to help provide a safe and arty experience for everyone!  We appreciate the efforts of all NIMBASH participants to keep each other safe as we gather to raise funds for Nimbus Arts.

However, COVID-19 is still highly contagious and even the best safety practices can only reduce the likelihood of the spread of COVID-19.  Thus, we cannot guarantee that our guests will not be exposed to COVID-19 as a result of attending NIMBASH.

By attending NIMBASH, guests expressly agree to comply with any and all rules and safety guidelines put in place by the event organizers, and voluntarily assume all risks related to exposure to COVID-19, waiving all claims and potential claims against the event organizers and their affiliated companies. If attendees fail to follow our COVID-19 preventive protocols, entry will be denied and/or attendees may be asked to leave. NIMBASH COVID-19 protocols may change at any time.

We are sincerely grateful for your patience and flexibility and we look forward to enjoying Napa Valley’s arty party with you on September 11th! Please see below for entry requirements and protocols.


At NIMBASH 2021, upon entry or during the weeks leading up to the event, we are requiring all guests to either:

A. Provide proof that they are fully vaccinated against COVID-19 (with final dose administered by August, 28, two weeks before the event);


B. Provide proof of a negative COVID-19 test result. The test must have been taken within 72 hours of NIMBASH. Participants may be tested Wednesday, September 8 or after for their negative result to be honored on the day of the event.

  • Please be prepared for cashless transactions when purchasing your auction items at check-out.
  • Hand sanitizer will be located on tables throughout the event including one bottle per dinner table.
  • Tables, art activities and demonstrations, and food / beverage stations will be spaced out in an effort to avoid crowding.
  • There will be no food or drink consumption indoors in the Carriage House to avoid mask removal indoors.
