Fourth of July Freedom Fest Safety Information
The Fairmont Scottsdale Princess continues its 10 year tradition of Freedom Fest for July 4th while complying with Governor Ducey's June 29th Executive Order.
This afternoon, Governor Ducey issued an executive order closing some businesses and adding additional restrictions to gatherings, specifically limited public outdoor gatherings to no more than 50 people and limiting the number of people per party at public pools and dining establishments to ten or fewer.
The 10th Annual Freedom Fest at the Fairmont Scottsdale Princess will be taking place July 2 through the 4. Resort leadership has carefully reviewed the order to reimagine the event to ensure compliance. Freedom Fest is a private event, limited to in-house guests only; here is how the resort is complying with the new order:
*Capacities - the resort has limited the capacity of guestrooms available and occupancy of restaurants and pools to ensure physical distancing is adhered to. Dining parties will be limited to ten or fewer per table to adhere with all orders.
*Physical distancing - the resort, which is situated on 65 acres, is painting eight foot circles spread six feet apart to clearly and easily allow guests to physically distance on the resort's lawns while enjoying fireworks and movies. Parties in each clearly marked circle will be limited to six or fewer, enforced by the resort.
*Face coverings - the resort will comply with the City of Scottsdale's emergency order requiring the wearing of face coverings while in public, when physical distancing is not able to be reasonably practiced. Additionally, all resort staff is, and has been, required to wear face coverings while at work.
*Pools - the resort's pools will remain open at a controlled capacity, and will comply with CDC, state and local mandates. There will be increased security on the resort's pool decks to enforce physical distancing and the resort will limit all groups congregated together to ten or fewer people. The resort's dive in movies will continue to operate as planned, with increased security to enforce distancing.
*To ensure compliance with Gov. Ducey's executive order, the Plaza Bar, a dining and bar concept, is transitioning their two bars to beverage pickup only and has removed all bar counter seating to eliminate congregation. The venue will continue to offer food and beverage service at individual tables for groups of ten or fewer.
*Drive in movies at the Princess - the resort will continue with the drive in movies as scheduled on July 2, 3 and 4 at 8 pm. Additional security will be on hand to ensure all regulations are adhered to and car will be positioned for physical distancing. Advance ticket purchase required.
