Our focus at The Max Center remains one of celebrating the performing arts, while also keeping our patrons, staff, volunteers, entertainers and contractors safe. In light of the Sept. 15 announcement from the Government of Alberta, we adopted new patron safety requirements for attending events.

As we have said above, everyone’s safety is of utmost importance to us.

Vaccine Requirements / Negative Test Result

Effective Friday, Oct. 1 the Max Center requires all patrons 12 years and older to be fully vaccinated, as long as it was given more than two weeks prior to service. Optionally, Patrons may provide proof of a privately paid for negative COVID test, taken within 72-hours of service.

Your Privacy and Proof of Vaccinations

While we do require proof of vaccination we will not store your personal information. The provincial health order does require patrons to provide photo identification when showing proof of vaccination The Alberta Health Care card is also acceptable (children up to 17-years are not required to provide proof of identification). Ticket holders will be asked to show proof of vaccination each time they attend a performance before entering the building. It is important to us at the Max Center that your privacy is respected and we want to ensure no unnecessary storage of personal information. We will not be able to save your vaccinations information for future performances.

Mask / vaccine exemption requirements

Patrons unable to wear a mask or receive a vaccination must provide documentation of medical exemption.

The vaccine requirement does not apply to children under 12. Masks are still required for children two-years-old and over.

These decisions are not taken lightly and we understand that not everyone is able to follow these health and safety requirements. For those ticket holders, we invite you to contact the box office for a full refund.

During these difficult times, the Max Center has been humbled with the strong support of our sponsors and patrons. We are grateful to all our sponsors for their support, and we are proud, and grateful, to continue hosting live events at the centre. With that in mind, we also wish everyone a safe and memorable experience, which is why we have taken this step.
