Tips For Buying A Tent For An Outdoor Event

Any kind of outdoor event, from a wedding to a birthday party to a craft fair, is better with tents. Event Tents provide shade from the sun and protection from a sudden rain. They also help to organize outdoor space by clearly marking sale booths or food tables, so that they stand out and are easy to find. A tent with walls can also provide a well-lit space at a night-time event. If you’re planning to rent a tent, the following are a few things to consider.

First of all, figure out which type of tent is best for your needs. Canopy tents are lightweight and have no side walls. They are great for providing coverage of food or tables, but they are not guaranteed to be stable in a heavy rain or strong wind. Frame tents have a metal frame covered on the top and all sides by thick vinyl. They are stable and work well on different types of ground. Pole tents include both perimeter and center poles.

Once you’ve chosen the type of tent you want, make sure you know how to secure it safely so that it doesn’t fly away in a storm. Some tents are best secured by ropes that are staked into the ground, while others are weighted down with blocks.


Consult with a professional about the size of tent you need, especially if you’re planning to cover a large area, such as a dance floor or a dining area with many tables. Some professionals can advise you from their experience, while others may use a computer-assisted drawing to help you plan out the exact dimensions of the tent you need.

Consider whether or not you need flooring with your tent. A floor is advisable if the ground is uneven or if you have a lawn that you don’t want to get damaged by your guests’ trampling feet.

Plan for emergency situations. Find out how well the tent you’ve chosen is likely to hold up in case of a storm. You should also get advice about the best way to tear down a tent quickly before a storm threatens to blow it away.
