If you produce a food festival, there is nothing better than sunny skies and crowds of hungry guests. Unfortunately, when it rains, people change plans and spend their entertainment dollars elsewhere. With a rain insurance policy from Vortex Weather Insurance, you can gain peace of mind knowing that you have a backup plan in place if poor weather causes a drop in revenue at your food festival.

How Weather Insurance For Food Festivals Works

It’s Quick and Simple!

You choose payout limits, rainfall thresholds, and time span needed to align with your event.

We automatically monitor weather data from independent sources specific to your covered location.

Our policies offer a transparent trigger, without an adjuster or the hassle.

Hourly Insurance for a single event/day

Whether your food festival is a single-day event, or if you want to insure a critical portion of your weekend-long food festival, you determine the hours that are most important to the success of the event and we'll offer quotes options for your review.

Multiple hourly events for several events/days

If you want to insure several hourly events of a multi-day festival, you select the dates, hours, and the amount of insurance needed and let us handle the rest.  

Tiered insurance limits

We can build insurance quotes that offer smaller payouts if there is light rainfall with gradually increasing payouts as the rainfall amounts increase. This way, a policy can still respond, even if there is only a small amount of rain.



919 Beer

Beericana Craft Beer and Music Festival has purchased rain insurance every year for eight years. We have always wondered how a claim might be handled and this year we found out. Vortex processed our claim quickly and without any hassles. A claims check was issued within six (6) days of our festival. I highly recommend rain insurance and even more highly recommend Vortex.

“After producing events for 20 years, I decided to purchase weather insurance for the very first time. My first experience was with Vortex, and I have to say it was simple, straight forward, and paid out the very first time!  If it rains at your weather station more than the amount you buy, you get paid just like that!  I had the check within a week and a half!  I purchased another policy for the same event, and it rained again.  Just that easy I was paid out the second time I ever purchased rain insurance.  If you have any doubt, just contact me.  I feel safer knowing that I can cover my bills from the event if it rains.”
