Frame Tents come in a variety of sizes, making them our most versatile and therefore most popular tent rental option. These tents can be installed on decks, close to buildings, and any relatively level surface. Our frame tents are available with either a white or clear top. This type of tent is best used for events that have seating plans or a lot of guest movement is anticipated.
Pole Tents are excellent for weddings, festivals, company events, and more. These elegant tents, sometimes referred to as circus tents, have central support pole(s) down the center to create a clean, swooping look for the canopy. Pole tents offer a traditional look that is both cost-efficient and flexible.
High Peak Tents have a similar look as the pole tents but are better for smaller events. Built with a solid aluminum frame and covered with PVC-coated fabric, these tents are both beautiful and functional. They are available in either 10 x 10 ft or 15 x 15 ft and can either be used singly or placed side by side to create an aesthetically pleasing village grouping.
Structural Tents are heavy-duty frame tents, generally used for large events or long-term installations such as additional restaurant seating, construction projects, or repeat events. One benefit to these tents is the high ceilings that offer some extra height and space.
Location, location, location. Tents can be installed using different methods. Therefore, where you plan on placing the tent is a large contributing factor when choosing which tent is right for you. Will the tent be placed on grass, concrete, asphalt, sand, or a deck? Is the ground relatively level? Will it need to be close to other structures, such as a building? The tent space will need to be free of obstacles, including fences, swing sets, underground power lines, sprinkler systems, etc. Make sure to take all these factors into account when choosing your tent!
The size of your tent depends on how many guests you are planning to have at your event. We suggest following the general guidelines of:
Cathedral seating – minimum 8 sq ft per guest, plus aisles
Standing event – minimum 10 sq ft per guest
Seated dining – depends on the table size and layout
The number of guests is just one of the many things to consider when choosing the size of your tent rental. Other considerations should include whether you will be having a buffet, bar, dancefloor, sign-in table, DJ table, etc.
Complete your tent by renting any number of tent accessories, some being practical and others being fashionable. Depending on the type of event and the venue, you may want to consider renting flooring, side curtains, doors, or cooling products. Top it all off by renting décor for your tent such as pipe and drape or lighting!
