Contact us to learn more about our tent rentals!
Pole Tents
Pole tents have a classic, high-peak profile which makes them great for level surfaces that permit staking. As tension-style tents, they rely on the pressure of the vinyl fabric roof for their structural integrity. The roof is supported by a perimeter of white wood poles and aluminum center poles.
  • Widths of 30 feet to 80 feet
  • Can span hundreds of feet in length
  • Provides a 7 foot to 10 foot side pole clearance
  • Allows for a variety of sidewall and lighting options
Frame Tents
Frame tents allow for versatility because they don’t use center poles and are secured by staking or with the use of cement weights. Frame tents are built with a system of aluminum side legs, beams and crossbars. The vinyl top material comes in an opaque white or translucent clear fabric.
  • Widths of 10 feet to 40 feet
  • Expands in lengths of 10 feet, 15 feet or 20 feet
  • Sidewalls work on a keder track system which allows for an easy open and close
  • Lots of adaptability for lighting, custom draping and climate control
Sailcloth Tents
Sailcloth tents are designed to have a more natural look with their gorgeous fabric and organic wood poles. With their translucent material, sunlight radiates through the tent during the day. At night, the fabric creates a beautiful glow from the outside. While the sailcloth tent is constructed like a pole tent, its elevated style and beauty stand out.
  • Widths of 32 feet, 44 feet or 59 feet
  • Provides rounded versus the square ends of the traditional pole tent
  • Offers an 8 foot side pole clearance
  • Includes roll-down sidewalls in a solid or clear unobstructed window option
Specialty Tents
Specialty tents enhance the look and feel of your event while also providing protection from the elements. Check out our glamping tent for your next backyard gathering or as an addition to the sailcloth tent experience. Coming soon to Event Essentials, consider the unique wood beam look of the Timbertrac frame tent.
