Vendor and Exhibitor Insurance

Vendor Insurance is required at time of application.  Vendors must provide their own liability insurance, with an A- rated insurance company or better by A.M. Best & Co.   A Certificate of Insurance (COI) from the vendor’s insurance company evidencing liability insurance coverage in an amount not less than One Million U.S. Dollars ($1,000,000.00) for any single occurrence and naming Bluemont Citizens Association k/a Bluemont Fair as both additional insured and certificate holder, coverage must be on a primary and noncontributory basis and waive subrogation in favor of Bluemont Citizens Association k/a Bluemont Fair.  (Occurrence forms only; Claims Made policies or certificates will NOT be accepted.)  Please provide this information to your insurance agent in advance so your COI will be issued correctly and in a timely matter.

As soon as possible after your application has been approved, please ask your insurance provider for a Certificate of Liability Insurance (COI), showing proof of your coverage for our event.  It should list the Bluemont Citizens Association as “Additional Insured” or “Certificate Holder”, at the following address:

Bluemont Citizens Association
PO Box 362
Bluemont, VA 20135

Please email your COI to:
