FAQs / Mask policies

Do I still have to wear a face mask/face covering to visit Fairyland?

Now that children 6 months through 5 years have the ability to be vaccinated masking at Fairyland is optional. COVID-19 is still very present. We strongly encourage families and guardians to consult their pediatrician about vaccination options. There are also plenty of resources in Alameda County to help your family make the decision that suits you best.


Can we go barefoot in Fairyland?

Sorry, no! Shoes must be worn in the park at all times.
