Voted Best Insurance for the Smallest Businesses

What is Event Vendors + Entertainers Insurance, and why do I need it?

Whether you’re a DJ, a comedian, a magician, or a mime, whenever there’s a large crowd, accidents can happen. As a vendor, your venue is always changing. You set up wherever you can find a spot, whether that’s events, private parties, fairs, music festivals, or farmers’ markets.

Thimble’s Event Vendors + Entertainers Insurance can protect you from costs associated with negligence, misrepresentation, and mistakes made on the job.

Every entertainer needs general liability insurance and professional liability insurance, the two most essential policies for a business. If you don’t have them and something happens while you’re on the job, one big claim could cost enough to put you out of work.

With these two policies bundled together to create Thimble’s Event Vendors + Entertainers Insurance, you’ll have the protection you need to stay focused on building your business.

What is covered under the Event Vendors + Entertainers Insurance policy?

Thimble’s Event Vendors + Entertainers Insurance—including general liability and professional liability coverages—is built to protect entertainers from the following:

Bodily Injury
As a performer, you might ask audience members to participate in your show. Should you call someone on stage and your act leads to a bodily injury, you could be liable.

3rd Party Property Damage
While trying to help an event guest, should a neighboring vendor’s table be knocked over, you could be held liable for third-party property damage, leading to potential lawsuits from other vendors.

Medical Expenses
Some people are scared of clowns, and some people are easily startled (and some people are easily startled by clowns). Should your performance frighten someone, that could cause them to run away in a panic and incur an injury. If anyone is injured due to your performance, they might claim that you’re liable for their medical bills.

Defense Costs
If you’re doing an interactive performance (or any form of entertainment), then there’s always the risk that someone could get injured. Should this occur, they could take you to court. Thus, you could be left needing a legal defense.

Errors and Omissions
As a performer, other entertainers might look up to you for instruction. They want to learn and follow your direction. Should you provide professional advice that your client or student believes to be negligent, resulting in their financial loss, you could be held liable.
