frequently asked questions
1. Why are we asked to provide proof of insurance? --JuneteenthKC traditionally offers the option to be included as an additional insured within our event insurance policy for the Heritage Festival event. JuneteenthKC strongly recommends that all vendors either have their own insurance or that they select to be added to our insurance to cover any loss to your items due to weather or vandalism. This is more so a courtesy to ensure that your items are covered if something were to happen and your items are damaged. This option can be waived if your products do not present a danager or liability to the event. Vendors can waive this option by selecting "no" when you reach the question asking if you would like to have insurance coverage added to your application. Please be advised that FOOD & Beverage vendors will still be required to show proof of insurance to distribute consumable items during the event.
