A special event policy (naming the County of Oakland as additional insured) held by the renter is required for all weddings, events for more than 250 people, if alcohol is served or sold, or if the venue is rented by an organized entity/group. Oakland County is self-insured; therefore renters are not covered by Oakland County Parks and Recreation insurance. A $1,000,000 per occurrence/$2,000,000 general aggregate Special Event General Liability policy will be required. If alcohol will be served, Host Liquor Liability coverage ($1,000,000) must also be included. For further information, call 248-599-2708.
