This form is only for events occurring on private property. If you are hosting an event on City of Guelph property, like Riverside Park or Exhibition Park, please visit the City of Guelph Special Events page and complete an application.
Please include a proposed site layout with your application.
The site layout must be in one of the following formats:
pdf, doc, docx, xls, xlsx, csv, txt, rtf, jpg, jpeg, png, gif
The Guelph Water Wagon must be situated in a prominent location with adequate room agreeable to City of Guelph Staff. A plan must be provided in the event of poor weather (i.e. relocation, cancellation), and agreed to by City of Guelph Staff. A suitable live water connection (i.e. hose bib) must be available for multi-day events as determined by Guelph Water Services, and will be discussed on the first site visit for the event.
Provision of refillable water bottles by the event organizers is encouraged; the City of Guelph will not provide refillable drinking vessels.
The Guelph Water Wagon provides emergency potable water supply to Guelph residents. In the unlikely event of an emergency, these situations take precedence over booked events, and Water Services staff reserves the right to cancel attendance at an event or remove the Guelph Water Wagon from an event in order to fulfill these duties.
The City of Guelph will take into consideration the ratio of event duration and expected attendance when determining an event’s suitability for Water Wagon participation. For example, an event that runs for two full days and only expects the minimum attendance of 500 people might not be approved, despite meeting minimum conditions.
The City of Guelph has no control over the mechanical malfunction of the Water Wagon during an event. In the unlikely event of a mechanical malfunction, the City of Guelph reserves the right to remove the Water Wagon from an event.
Insurance coverage is necessary in order to protect yourself and the City against any possible litigation (lawsuits) as a result of your event. All groups using the Guelph Water Wagon must have Liability Insurance coverage. The type of insurance coverage required is COMPREHENSIVE GENERAL LIABILITY, inclusive of bodily injury and property damage, in the amount of $2,000,000.00 per occurrence, and should be purchased through your local insurance provider or your organization’s insurance provider. The City requires a CERTIFICATE OF INSURANCE naming the City of Guelph as additional insured.
The provision of the Guelph Water Wagon for the requested event is null and void if proof of insurance is not provided at least one (1) month in advance of the event date.
