Oktoberfest Weather Is Finnicky – Make Sure You’re Prepared

Hourly Insurance for a single event/day

If your Oktoberfest celebration is a single-day event, or if you want to insure a critical portion of your weekend-long celebration, 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 Oktoberfest celebration, 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 escalating 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.”
