For events held on public property, you are required to obtain liability insurance that names you and the City of Mauldin as co-insured. This policy can be obtained through a private broker, or through the GatherGuard website, as detailed below.

The City of Mauldin offers optional liability insurance for those utilizing public property for a special event. GatherGuard is a low-cost insurance policy that protects both the “tenant user” and the City of Mauldin. You may purchase this one-time, event-specific insurance online by following the directions below.

Insurance must be obtained before a special events application is approved. You can submit your application before you purchase insurance, but it will not be approved until proof of insurance is received.

For questions or assistance, please call the contact associated with your desired space.
