Insurance coverage for your event is only required if the property owner where the event will be held requires it.
If you are holding your party on a closed street, you will need to talk to the Portland Bureau of Transportation about whether they will require insurance for your event. If you are holding your party in a city park, you will need to talk the Portland Parks and Recreation about their insurance requirements. For events held on City-owned property, you may be able to purchase a TULIP (Tenant Users Liability Insurance) policy.
If you plan to hold your party on private property, such as a neighbor's yard, or a church parking lot, speak with the owner about whether they will require insurance. If they do require it, you may be able to get a special events policy through an insurance agency.
