Register your time slot

This year, the Rosslyn BID has adjusted the typical Rosslyn Reads format to one that supports physical distancing and observes Virginia’s state guidelines. Register here for a one hour time slot during the event, with a maximum of 50 people allowed in the plaza at any given time. All individual attendees must register and provide confirmation of registration at the event check-in. If attendees do not sign up in advance, they will be required to fill out a waiver onsite. 

Additional safety protocols will include one-way flow of foot traffic to promote physical distancing, masks will be required in the space, and hand sanitizing stations will be available at the entrance. Before making a reservation, please review the Rosslyn BID’s COVID-19 safety protocols and note that by making a reservation you are agreeing to abide by these guidelines. Additionally, do not attend if you or anyone in your household is currently experiencing symptoms.

And while you’re in the area, be sure to stop by and support one of Rosslyn’s restaurants. You can find a list of local dining options, including takeout and curbside pickup, from our regularly updated directory
