Insurance Requirements

Commercial Lessees and Lessees charging admission; taking orders or selling merchandise; distributing food or alcohol; or events with a higher risk factor must agree to carry comprehensive liability insurance in a company authorized to do business in the State of Georgia. Minimum insurance coverage is required as follows: $500,000 bodily injury to any one person; $1,000,000 for bodily injury from any one accident; and $100,000 for property damage for any one accident. Coverage must also protect Lessee and show Cobb County Government and as an additional insured during the period of the event.

A policy or certificate of insurance must be delivered to the amphitheatre management at least 30 days prior to the event. Failure to provide proof of required insurance coverage will result in cancellation of event. All lease agreements contain waivers of liability and should be reviewed thoroughly by Lessee.

Security Requirements

Security is mandatory during show hours for events where near capacity crowds are expected; money is being collected; or alcoholic beverages are served. Security for other events will be required at the discretion of the amphitheatre manager.

Security arrangements must be made at least 30 days prior to the event. These arrangements are made by contacting the Cobb County Police Department, Ranger Division, Security Coordinator at (770) 528-8865. The Lessee is required to contract with and to pay directly to the officers for services provided on an hourly basis. Service will be provided with a 4 hour minimum fee.

The number of security officers required will be determined by the Security Coordinator, based on the type of event, patron safety, and traffic control requirements. Only sworn and State Certified Cobb County Police Rangers, Cobb County Police, Cobb County Sheriff's deputies and Cobb County Correction’s officers will be used as security at Cobb County facilities. Many of these officers and most of the police rangers are Certified Emergency Medical Technicians (EMT's).

Food Service

Cobb County reserves all concession rights, including but not limited to food and beverages. No food or other edibles or drinks may be served or given away in buildings or on grounds by the Lessee unless authorized by amphitheatre management.

Only the Cobb County contracted concessionaire and caterer are permitted to serve food or drinks at the amphitheatre. Any deviation of this policy must be pre-approved through the facility manger.

Alcoholic beverages may be served without charge and consumed at closed functions, but the offer and sale of alcoholic beverages at such functions is prohibited. A written limited guest list must be prepared at least forty-eight hours in advance of the date on which the closed function is to occur.
