Special Events Insurance Coverage

Protect your special event with the right insurance coverage


Protect your special event with insurance coverage designed and priced for fundraisers, contests, walk/runs, dance recitals, and more. Special events insurance helps protect you from out-of-pocket expenses due to unforeseen circumstances, such as property damage or bodily injury.

While insurance for special events isn’t usually top-of-mind for event planners, securing insurance coverage is an essential step in the process. In fact, many event venues require proof of insurance before booking a reservation.
