With regards to COVID-19, Mayo Street Arts is committed to the safety of everyone at the event and will adhere to whatever Federal & Maine CDC guidelines exist at the time of the show.

At this time, we are asking performing artists to have a negative test within 48 hours of the gig. Click here for locations where Maine provides free tests.

Artists will then perform unmasked and all audience members, staff & volunteers—vaccinated or not—will be asked to mask while not actively playing an instrument, eating, or drinking.

As with audience members, class and workshop participants will be required to mask while indoors.

Our facility will be cleaned and sanitized daily with additional sanitization of commonly touched surfaces between each activity.

Please check this webpage prior to attending your event for the most up-to date information.

Dear Friends,

For the safety and health of all, we’re following the CDC recommendations of cancelling all gatherings of 50 or more for at least eight weeks. In this light, we’ve canceled all public programs, rehearsals, and gatherings at Mayo Street Arts until further notice.

If you’ve purchased a ticket for an event at MSA that’s been canceled and would like a refund, please contact Brown Paper Tickets directly at or 1-800-838-3006. If you’d like to donate your ticket to help the cause, do nothing and your ticket purchase will support the artists and MSA even though we can not have the performance as planned.

If you’d like to make a donation to help support Mayo Street Arts in this difficult time, you can give here.

You can also support Mayo Street Arts with the purchase of a gift certificate here.

We are thinking of you all, and the many artists, arts venues, and arts workers for whom this is a Big Ouch. Thanks so much as always for your support, and we look forward to seeing you as soon as we safely can.

-the MSA Team
