Tents are some of the most versatile event spaces. From small, intimate sailcloth tents to massive clear top frame tents, there is a tent style for you and your setting. Choosing a tent can be overwhelming if you don't know what types are out there so here's a rundown of popular tent types for events, big and small!

tentPole Tents

Pole tents are a common event tent choice as they are easy to transport and set up and they look sophisticated. This style of tent can be used with and without sidewalls and you can choose what type of sidewalls you would like. This tent style has a square or rectangular footprint and tent companies usually carry them in many sizes as they are quite popular. 

Sailcloth Tents

Sailcloth tents are some of the most beautiful event tents. With rounded corners and transparent canvas, they are graceful and organic structures that both stand out and blend into the landscape. This tent style can accommodate both large and small gatherings as many rental companies offer a variety of sizes. 

Frame Tents

Frame tents stand out from the aforementioned tent styles because they do not require any interior support poles which means you have more open space for your event! Frame tents can be customized to your style with a white top or a clear top and clear or white sidewalls, which can be opened. From event tents to commercial canopies, frame tents are one of the most versatile choices. 

Glamping Tents

Glamping (glamourous camping) has been a popular event trend for the past few years, originating from the VIP tent accommodations at music festivals like Coachella and Bonnaroo. These small tents usually fit 2-3 twin beds or a queen, installed on low platforms, and have a center support pole. Many people have been adding these to their event line up for on site accommodations.
