The City of Maple Ridge requires that the organizer have a five million dollar ($5,000,000) general liability insurance policy in place, naming the City of Maple Ridge and School District 42 as additional insured. The policy must cover all activities taking place at the event and may not list any exclusions relating to activities being presented as part of the event. The policy must be in place from the first day of set-up to the last day of clean-up. Detailed requirements will be listed on your facility use/special event agreement. Work with your insurance provider to ensure that your event is appropriately insured.
If any alcohol is being served at the event (such as a beer garden or vendor tasting), the insurance policy must include host liquor liability.
The City of Maple Ridge reserves the right, solely at its discretion, to set higher insurance limits based on best practices or risk management recommendation. This may be required depending on the type of activity planned during the event (e.g., fireworks display, amusement rides, etc.).
