Special Event Insurance Requirements

Because of the historic significance of Hills & Dales Estate, insurance is required for any special event that takes place on the property.

If you are employing a caterer, they must provide a certificate of insurance showing they have liability insurance of at least $1,000,000 and full worker’s compensation coverage. The caterer must provide proof of insurance at least two weeks prior to the event.

All individuals or groups renting the facility are required to supply a certificate of insurance that names Fuller E. Callaway Foundation as an additional insured for the duration of the event. The amount of coverage must be a minimum of $1,000,000. When alcohol is served the coverage must specify that alcohol related incidences are covered. To meet this requirement most individuals will need to purchase a single special event policy. In addition, many organizations and companies that already have general liability insurance and worker’s compensation can add an additional insured to an existing policy for a nominal fee. This document is due at least two weeks prior to the event.

Please contact the Executive Director or Visitor Center Manager at (706) 882-3242 if you have questions.
