Crate and keep him separate from the party. He's too young and inexperienced to be around a huge group and if he has shown protection around the home and strangers already this could to be just too much and it's better safe than risking an incident like a bite or something that leaves him with long-lasting fear. If the party dwindles down to a smaller group and you are comfortable, bringing him out leashed is certainly fine, but while you are in "host" mode and distracted by the whole party, it's best to just keep him safe. Perhaps when he is older, more experienced with strangers, in a smaller group, etc. might be different. Best wishes. Better off safe.
