It's incredibly exciting to once again host this event on campus! We are planning with precaution and mindfulness that we are all still navigating a pandemic. And that means this year’s festivities look a little different with a slightly smaller event and limited capacity. Most of the work available for auction will be in the online silent auctions and will be previewed during the on-campus event. Please visit penland.org/auction for the most current information and schedule of events.
To maximize everyone’s safety, Penland School requires participants in all programs and events to be vaccinated for COVID-19. If you are medically exempt from vaccination a negative PCR test within 72 hours prior to the event will be accepted. Masks are currently optional on Penland campus, this may change if pandemic conditions worsen. All of our Health & Safety guidelines are subject to change in response to the guidance of our local government officials and public health entities.
