Which Tent is Best for Which Event?

We’re fast approaching the end of summer, but parties are still taking place everywhere. Maybe the graduation parties are over, perhaps the corporate picnics have come and gone, but there is always an occasion to throw a party. The end of summer and the fall season are popular times for weddings, while birthday parties can happen 365 days a year, and celebrations of all kinds are always going on. With so many different events happening, you’ll need to choose from all types of supplies, equipment and most importantly, the right tent.

At Tents & Events, we have the kind of tent you need to accommodate your event. We offer tent rental in Holland, PA, as well as other local areas, so you can throw the ultimate party and keep yourself and your guests protected from sun, rain and other elements. Here are three types of tents used for parties, and which event each is typically used for:

1.    Canopies – Canopies are for the Do-It-Yourselfer for smaller events on lawns. They’re lightweight structures that are used for shelter from sunlight and light rain. Canopies are not recommended during extreme weather conditions. Many times, canopies are used for backyard parties, and sometimes even set up for flea markets and community day events.

2.    Pole Tents – Pole tents are used for bigger events. If you have a large amount of people coming to your party or celebration, we recommend the pole tent because it allows for the greatest capacity. They come complete with center poles, high ceilings and elaborate shapes. You can add lighting, sidewalls, decorative materials and more. They’re good for all occasions especially weddings, fundraisers and corporate events. Pole tents are tension structures which require staking into the ground.

3.    Frame Tents – Frame tents have no poles, so they allow for maximum space under the tent. They can be installed on a variety of surfaces, including pavement, and can be close to buildings and other structures. Frame tents can also be installed with weights (as an option) if the tent cannot be staked. They can also be outfitted with lighting and sidewalls. They are the best all-around tent and suited for most birthday parties, showers, engagements and more.
