How to Determine Your Party Tent Requirements

Renting a tent is a great way to add an exciting change of scenery for guests during your next big event. However, if you don’t have any experience in party tent rentals, planning can get confusing quickly. Finding the right tent for your party doesn’t have to be too complicated — all you need to do is take a little time to consider what you really need to keep your guests happy. Follow these tips to help determine what kind of tent you need for your next big party.

Party tents come available in a variety of different sizes.

The first step in planning is to consider the size of your party site. You’ll need to use the guest count and the square footage of the party area to determine what kind of tent will suit your venue the most. Don’t rent anything too big for the space — try to allow ten feet of space around the perimeter to provide your set-up crew enough space to pitch and anchor your tent.

You’ll also need to determine what kind of surface you’ll be anchoring your tent. If you plan on hosting your event on turf, you’ll likely need to choose a tent with poles that can be hammered into the ground. Asphalt or stone will require a tent you can safely secure above ground.

Popular Options

Classic Frame tents are the most popular solution among event planners that set up corporate events and festivals. These tents are simply designed and don’t have any interior poles, which allows for lots of room for guests.

Century Pole tents are another great option — they have center poles, which gives them a stylish sloped look. These tents are great for housing smaller, round tables.
