Overload protecting switch

Well, as most of you know, I have my shed wired to an inlet for generator or house use via a 14ga extension cord. It is all wired with 14ga NM cable. It is sometimes plugged into a 20a circuit on the generator. Well, I know not to overload the circuit, but I am having a Halloween walk with volunteers, and they won't know when enough is enough. Aside from having to install a small panel just with a 15a breaker for the wiring, do they sell a fuse/breaker controlled switch or something that can be wired right into a j-box? I'd hate to install a big boxy panel for 1 little breaker.
