We have been welcomed onto sacred land, in a pristine mountain community. We work here, play here and build community here. It is our hope at Bonfire Entertainment to stand up to our reputation as environmental stewards and responsible community partners and to return year after year.

We are working with Clean Republic on infection prevention and control by providing each vendor with Clean Republic Disinfectant + Sanitizer. We will also place touchless hand dispensers in high-traffic areas for quick and convenient hand cleansing, and will provide guests and artist with a personal on-the-go all-purpose cleaner. Clean Republic Disinfectant + Sanitizer kills 99.9% of viruses and bacteria, including the Covid-19 virus in 60 seconds on hard, non-porous surfaces. Clean Republic is pH neutral, formulated with just salt, water and electricity, and free from harsh chemicals and fumes, making it people, pet and plant friendly.

We kindly ask you for your help in keeping Renewal safe, clean, and positive, while protecting wildlife, supporting local business, and spreading kindness to the neighbors.


We 100% support your right to choose your path related to COVID-19, but we need to follow some simple guidelines set forth by our community partners, Chaffee County and Bonfire Entertainment to safely ensure the show goes on. 

The County is allowing us to gather and bring together 5,000 people. So long as we respect the local guidelines and keep our small mountain host community safe, we will all get to enjoy two nights of Billy Strings, and be invited back!

It’s pretty simple, all fans will be required to submit proof of vaccination electronically or present it; or proof of a negative test within 48-72 hours of the show, 4 pm Friday, September 24th. The card or test results must match your government issued ID and will be checked while you are in your car, prior to entry. For children attending, see below.

  • For children ages 5-11, a negative test within 72 hours of entry is required.  
  • For children ages 12 & up, proof of vaccination or a negative test within 72 hours of entry will be accepted.  
  • For those 4 years of age or younger, no test is required. 


For a seamless entry, please upload your vaccination or negative test now using the QR code below. We’ll already have you covered when you check in on-site!


For those who cannot interact with the QR code, please use the HealthShield chatbot. To get started, text “Hi” to 855.515.2549!


Our staff will also be required to show proof of vaccination or a negative test. Plus we will be regularly sanitizing all public surfaces and restrooms.


With over 100 acres to congregate, everyone can have more than six feet of space. However, if you are in a crowd we encourage you to wear a mask. If you see someone wearing a mask, and you are not, please smile, you never know what circumstances or pre existing conditions your fellow Renewal fans may be facing, now is the time to support each other!


Please stay home, get tested and take care of yourself. Shoot us an email and we will assist in selling your ticket!


You must follow all Bonfire and Chaffee County policies, including health and safety policies and posted instructions around the venue.
