Do I have to be vaccinated for COVID-19 to be able to enter?

Due to Victorian Government regulations, we require all patrons to be fully vaccinated for covid-19 to be able to enter.

Patrons will be required to prove their vaccination status either through their COVID-19 digital certificate displayed through the Service Victoria app, Medicare app, or equivalent smartphone wallet, or on presentation of a printed version of their certificate or immunisation history statement.

Victorians can add their COVID-19 digital certificate to the Service Victoria app through MyGov or the Express Medicare Plus App.

If you purchased tickets before October 25th (when the mandated agreement of vaccination was added to the ticket purchasing process) and are not going to be fully vaccinated by December 5th, you can request a refund by filling out this form.

The cut off date for refund requests is Sunday the 7th of November. Ticket reselling info will be sent out after this date.

I have a covid-19 vaccination exemption, am I able to attend?


We finally have clarity from relevant stakeholders and are happy to announce that exemptions will be accepted!

IMPORTANT, PLEASE READ: Here is the info from the dhhs:

Providing proof of exemption to gain entry to Reminisce Carnivale.

From 6pm on 12 November, you can no longer use a medical certificate as evidence of COVID-19 vaccination exemption.

If you can’t get any of the approved COVID-19 vaccines for medical reasons, your doctor needs to update your record on the Australian Immunisation Register to show that you have a medical exemption.

Once your exemption has been processed, you can download your COVID-19 digital certificate exemption and add that to your Services Victoria APP, for use when you check in using Victorian Government QR Code Service.
A paper copy of your Immunisation Register will not be acceptable for entry to Reminisce Carnivale. 

Every single patron on entry, must provide photo ID and they must scan in to the event using the Services Victoria APP with their vaccination status uploaded to the APP.
