3 Tent Styles You Should Know

Anyone who has planned an outdoor event knows that there’s always one thing entirely out of your control – rain. While tents provide other benefits such as protection from the sun and the ability to block out external noise, protecting your guests from rain is key to hosting a successful party.


You might be looking to rent a tent as a contingency plan, or you may want to host your entire event in an outdoor tent that can be completely enclosed. Whether this is your first time renting a tent, or you’re looking for new solutions for your upcoming events, at Tents & Events, we’ve got you covered. Below are three tent styles you should know:

Pole Tents

Pole tents are commonly used for many outdoor events because they are portable, affordable, and easy to set up. If you’re hosting a spring or summer event on a grass lawn or area, pole tents are the perfect solution. It’s important to remember that pole tents must be pitched manually, and you’ll need unpaved ground to ensure the stability of your tent. Pole tents come in various sizes and are great for more informal occasions. Pole tents are preferred for informal events because there are center poles that block sightlines, making it difficult for some guests to see speakers or have a good view of performances.

Frame Tents

For events that include a large number of people, we suggest renting a frame tent. These tents can be erected almost anywhere, and the structure is designed so that there is no center pole needed for additional support. We recommend frame tents for weddings, large gatherings, and company events where it’s important for all guests to have a great view.

Concession Tents

There are times when you don’t need a large tent for hosting and instead are looking for smaller tents for educational or trade fairs. These presentational tents are designed to showcase your brand and are usually constructed with lightweight materials allowing them to be easily transported between various locations.
