Gathering leadership is proceeding with plans for the 2022 Gathering, with registration to open Sept. 22. We are in continuous conversations with the City of Minneapolis and medical professionals about the COVID-19 pandemic, the Delta variant and how our event will be impacted. Any decisions will adhere to guidance from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) and the local health department.

We strongly encourage everyone to talk with their health care providers and get vaccinated if they are able. The science shows that the vaccine is safe and effective in limiting the spread of COVID-19. To learn more about the vaccine or how to get an appointment, please visit

As we get closer to next summer we will communicate any safety measures, such as mask requirements, that will take place to ensure the safety of all participants. To learn about the cleaning practices and safety precautions of the City of Minneapolis, visit:

Wondering how to approach the topic of the TIMING of the Youth Gathering, as it relates to things like BAND CAMP,  SPORT, and MORE?
