Entry to all Pasadena POPS Concerts will require proof of receiving a fully completed Covid-19 vaccine. There will be no exceptions for entry to any concert, including for children, without providing proof of vaccination and a photo I.d. at the door. If your child is not vaccinated, they are unable to attend.

The following are acceptable as proof of full vaccination:

  • Vaccination card (which includes the name of the person vaccinated, type of COVID-19 vaccine provided, and date the last dose was administered, which must be at least two weeks prior to the concert date)
  • A photo of the attendee’s vaccination card as a separate document
  • A photo of the attendee’s vaccine card stored on a phone or electronic device
  • Documentation of full vaccination from a healthcare provider

*Please note that Negative Covid-19 test results will not be permissible for entry. There are not exceptions to proof of full vaccination.

Read below for a list of current health and safety guidelines. In the coming weeks, we will share more with you about what to expect at the POPS this summer and the policies and procedures designed for the safety of our guests.
