New York Artist Crafter and Vendor Insurance

ACT Insurance in New York

Historically, New York has always been an epicenter for art and artistic movements. There is very much a sense of community among artists and crafters throughout the state.


If you’re part of this community of creatives, the many art fairs, craft festivals, and other events held throughout the state provide many opportunities for you to meet patrons and sell your work to the public. Before you go, make sure you have the liability insurance coverage many of these events require.


Artists, Crafters, and Tradesmen (ACT) Insurance has two different policies to best meet your needs. You’ll never have to wait for a quote, so you can even purchase same-day coverage.
