Choosing the right tent rentals for your outdoor event:

Pole Tent Rental

Pole Tent
The pole tent is occasionally referred to as a circus tent, and is more festive.  It has a pole in the center and offers your event a fun look.  Its affordability also makes this a popular choice for festivals, fairs and weddings.

Frame Tent Rental

Frame Tent
A frame tent has open, clear sightlines and makes for a more elegant upscale look.  You can use leg extenders to enhance ceiling height up to 14 feet for gorgeous high ceilings.  This is a great choice for corporate events and backyard parties. It’s more of a modern look with clean sight lines.

Structure Tent
This is the best of the best: once we’re done, you’ll wonder how we constructed something so magnificent. It’s the strongest, purpose-built, best-looking option out there.  You can add lighting rigs, acrobatic rigs, build a see-through ceiling and so on. The options are endless.  This is for event producers with larger budgets.

What Size Tent Rental Best Suits Your Needs?

Wedding Tent Rentals:
We recommend 10-15 square feet per guest.  The assumption here is that your guests will be seated at round tables with added space for buffet tables, head tables, bars and a dance floor.

Tent Rental for Outdoor Cocktail Parties:
Suggested 6-10 sq. ft. per person. This assumption is that you will have cruiser tables, people are standing and mingling and you have smaller food stations.

What other Tent Rental Add-Ons Can I Choose?

Event lighting
Consider renting chandeliers, spot lights, flood lights or twinkle lights. This is a very important element that creates mood and feeling. (Prices on request)

Pole Drapes
There are quite a few poles required for a pole tent and they can be less than appealing. Choosing to add pole drapes gives your event a more refined look. They are available in white, but you can play with lighting to set the mood and establish elegance. ($15 each)

Centre Pole Drapes
Same as pole drapes, but these are significantly thicker, so there is more fabric required. ($50 each)

Tent Draping/Lining
This drapery is for the ceiling of the tent, adding a rippled effect to the room. It is not required and it’s purely aesthetic but it looks fantastic. This option is considered a high-end finishing touch.

Rent a Tent with Carpet
If the surface under the tent isn’t beautiful, we can transform the space with flooring and carpeting. We offer you a variety of colors, textures and choices. Please call for custom quote.

Wooden Sub-Floor
Picture this: its wet, everyone is walking towards the high traffic areas (usually the buffet) and its getting muddy and mushy. Your guest of honour’s heel gets stuck in the slop. She loses her shoe, and stumbles into the mud. You’re a bit embarrassed, because you know you could have invested in a flooring solution that would have prevented it. Please call for quote on a raised, wooden floor for under your carpet.

Event Fence Rental
If you are serving liquor at an outdoor event, you need a 42” fence barrier between public and licensed areas. This elegant and simple solution is an added touch if you need extra security.

Rent a Porta-potty
There are two types for you to choose from. The high-end choice is the trailer option, which feels like stepping into a hotel washroom. It’s fully functional with multiple stalls, sinks and mirrors. The festival choice is the traditional plastic ones that fit one person at a time.

Tent Rental Heat/AC
Events in the winter require heat. Some summer events require A/C. Your guests often come unprepared for temperature shifts. A successful event planner will have a back-up plan ready to ensure their guests’ comfort.

Rent a Dance Floor
It has the appearance of wood and is smooth with edging on it to avoid anyone catching a heel. It’s interlocking. Size can be customized to fit your specific needs. They are also easy to install and ready to go when you are.
