Tent Basics

Planning an outdoor event?

Whether you are wanting to provide shelter from sun, wind or rain, a tent is the first thing to consider. Tents provide shade or protection from the elements.  Grand Events & Party Rentals has a show room where many of the accessories for your event can be seen.

Frequently asked questions:

  • How big of a tent do I need for my party?  Answer:  Rule of thumb, figure 10-15 square feet per person, if seating for dining.  Thus, a 20′ x 20′ tent has a foot-print area of 400 square feet, yielding seating for a maximum of 40 people.

  • What sizes of tents do we have available?  Answer:  We have 10′ x 10′ tents, 15′ x 15′ tent, 20′ x 20′ tents, 20′ x 40′ tents, all of which have heavy waterproof canvas canopies.

  • Do tents have side walls?  Answer:  As an option, solid, clear or solid with windows and/or door panel.  Most of them are suspended on a wire like a shower curtain that can be open for the view, closed if necessary for the weather.

  • What is the major obstacle to renting a tent?  Answer:  The surrounding infrastructure must be compatible with sufficient vertical clearance and erected on a reasonably flat and level surface.  Underground utilities, buried water and electrical conduits must be considered to avoid nasty surprises while driving stakes.
