Do you require an Insurance policy?

We require that you have an insurance policy (“Special Events Insurance”) naming The Blankenbaker as an additional insured that will cover you in case there are any unexpected incidents. This can sometimes be obtained through your homeowners insurance, but there are also other companies that provide this service. It is relatively inexpensive for a $1,000,000 one-day coverage.

 We do not allow any celebratory activity of this manner inside or outside the building.
