We are planning to require all attendees at Mysterium 2022 to be up to date with COVID vaccinations. We will update this page with additional information as we get closer to Mysterium.


Will vaccines be required to attend Mysterium 2022?

Yes, all attendees must be up to date with COVID vaccines.

Will there be any exemptions offered to the vaccination policy?

Sorry but no. If you are unable to attend due to vaccination requirements, we will be offering a number of activities online this year.

Which forms of proof of vaccination will be accepted?
  • Original, photocopy, or photograph of CDC-issued COVID vaccination card
  • Original, photocopy, or photograph of WHO-recognized international COVID vaccination card
  • Digital SMART Health Card with a QR code (e.g., from the myColorado app) – see a list of issuers here
All forms must contain your full name, the brand of vaccine received, and the date(s) of each dose. Paper cards (and photocopies thereof) must be accompanied by a photo ID for anyone over 18.
Which vaccines will be accepted?

The following CDC-recognized vaccines will be accepted:
2 doses of any of the following:

  • Pfizer-BioNTech
  • Moderna
  • AstraZeneca
  • Covaxin
  • Covishield
  • BIBP/Sinopharm
  • Sinovac
  • Novavax/Covovax

or 1 dose of the Janssen-Johnson & Johnson vaccine

How will proof of vaccination be kept confidential?

We will only be asking attendees to display records at the time badges are issued. No vaccine information will be stored.

What if someone fakes their proof of vaccination?

Any attendee who forges vaccine status credentials will be ejected from Mysterium and referred to law enforcement. That person will also be permanently banned from attending any future Mysterium or other events sponsored by Falling Man Group.

Will masks be required at Mysterium 2022?

Although they are encouraged, we do not at this time plan to require masks. However, we will enforce any federal health mandates, as well as those issued by the State of Colorado or the City and County of Denver. We will also enforce any policies set by our hotel.

Are you offering any additional flexibility this year with registration cancellations?
We have shortened the cancellation window from the standard 90 days in advance to 45 days. Inside of 45 days, please contact us; refunds will be evaluated on a case-by-case basis.
Note: We will be unable to refund purchases of Meow Wolf tickets after June 30 under any circumstances.
What happens if I test positive for COVID shortly before Mysterium, after the cancellation deadline?

Please do not attend. Contact us and we will arrange for a refund of your registration.

What happens if I feel sick during Mysterium?

Please notify us as soon as you suspect anything. We are not staffed to provide serious first-aid but we have resources such as a non-contact thermometer and a list of nearby medical services for use as needed. We also advise notifying the hotel front desk so they can take appropriate precautions for their staff.

If I have to cancel, will I receive a refund for my flight/train/hotel room?

For transportation, contact your carrier for their cancellation policies. Hotel rooms booked at the Mysterium rate may be canceled up until the day of arrival without penalty, after which time the fee will be equal to one night including taxes.

If I have to cancel, will I receive a refund for my Meow Wolf ticket purchase?

Meow Wolf tickets may be refunded until June 30. After that time, tickets will be nonrefundable under any circumstances.

Is it safe to attend a convention now?

This is a personal decision you will have to make. We encourage attendees to stay aware of current local infection rates and risks via the COVID-19 portal at the Colorado Department of Public Health & Environment here:

Can you guarantee I won’t catch COVID?

No. There is an inherent risk in travel as well as any large gatherings. While vaccines are effective at reducing the risk of infection and serious illness, there is still some risk of infection. Decide for yourself if you are comfortable with this risk.
