Don’t let bad weather postpone your customers plans this year of eating funnel cake, candy apples and riding carnival rides.
Independent ride or attraction owners need to understand the possible effects the weather can play at their fair or carnival event. To put it more simply, the weather is the deciding factor on whether your fair is open, closed, postponed or even cancelled. Make sure you do the proper planning to make sure your carnival or festival is covered from the weather.
Big state fairs will plan months ahead of time to coordinate vendors, locations, and dates however it isn’t until a couple months before their event dates that they will get quotes on weather coverage. Weather coverage is something that should be included in all fairs and festival budgets because it is vital that these events have good weather in order to protect their investments and turn a profit on the event.
Waiting for the carnival has become a mini-tradition for many. But to delay peoples anticipation further could be a loss of profits. A popular touring carnival last year had to be postponed a month later from the originally scheduled date due to heavy rainfall and soggy grounds.
When working with fairs and festivals US Weather Insurance will either offer a multi-day policy that will cover a limit per day over a week to a month’s time or coverage for the main event like a closing concert. Covering a multi-day event like a fair is important because these events will run for one to two weeks at a time and rely on people attending the festival every day. US Weather Insurance will let you customize your multi-day policy so it matches exactly what you need. For example if you want to cover longer hours or a higher limit on a Saturday verses a Tuesday, US Weather will allow you to do this all under one policy.
