Reef-A-Palooza Meadowlands Update



The staff at Reef-A-Palooza just announced that the show will go on at the Meadowlands Exposition Center in New Jersey. Attendance will be limited to 1,000 attendees for the AM block and 1000 for the afternoon block. Attendees will have a color coded wristband for each block and the event will take place on June 26th and June 27th.

The morning block will open up at 9:00 AM and last until 1:30 PM followed by a 1 hour break for the vendors. The afternoon block will begin and 2:30 PM and end at 7:00 PM.

Ultimate pass holders access to the show floor at 2:30 PM on Friday and 8:00 AM on Saturday and Sunday, making it a very long day for exhibitors.

The show’s raffle will also be broken into two times each day with a 12:30 pm and a 6:00 pm raffle each day.  The Reef-A-Palooza staff are working on implementing a system for announcing the winners via the website and Instagram Live and I’m sure we can expect to hear more about that at a later date.

Health and Safety
We will continue to follow current CDC and local Hudson County government guidelines for the health and safety of everyone in attendance.  All exhibitors, attendees, Reef-A-Palooza staff, and the show decorator staff (three years and older), will be required to wear a face covering in compliance with local ordinances and CDC guidelines, for the entire duration of the show.  Anyone not in compliance will be asked to leave.

Additional safety measures, such as social distancing and temperature checks may be in place. We will provide detailed information as we get closer to the show.
