Tents for Every Event
Rent Canopy Tents for Wedding Receptions, Parties, Festivals or Corporate Events
Remember when you were a kid and had a tent in the backyard? Even if it was just a tarp slung over a clothesline, there was something magical about it. Tents just have an incredible ability to create a special oasis, even in the most mundane, middle of nowhere settings. We see it all the time.
When it comes to parties and events, a tent offers much more than simply shelter against the sun or the rain. A tent makes a statement—it says something significant is going on and the host cares enough about those in attendance to provide a special place for them to gather.
Even the simplest of our event tents can create a unique ambiance. And when lit up at night, a tent conveys a warm and festive ambiance altogether lacking in an indoor setting.
Brookfield, Madison, and Fox Cities Party Rental congratulates you on your decision to think outside the box of boring reception halls and auditoriums. Wedding receptions, graduation parties, corporate outings, multi-day festivals—we have a tent for any occasion. Explore the photos above to get a better idea of what will work best for your event.
Our party tents range in size from 10×10 to 40×200. These tents can be set up on either grass or asphalt. These are the traditional style striped tent and are available in a variety of colors. If you have a preference for a tent with a specific stripe color, we advise contacting us well in advance of your event to reserve the color you want.
In keeping with the classic color theme of weddings, all our wedding event tents are white. However, don’t rule out a white tent for occasions other than weddings. A white tent is perfectly suitable for anniversaries, graduation celebrations and other events. We have these in a variety of sizes ranging from 20×20 to 60×160.
Frame tents are free-standing tents with no interior poles—a nice feature to promote mingling and a necessity if you plan on having a dance floor. Since these tents usually do not require in-ground staking, they can be set up on just about any type of ground surface. We offer these in sizes from 10x10 to 40x100.
TENT TIP: A Word About Your Grass
While you might think it would be a good idea to mow the lawn the day before your party tent is set up, we ask that you do NOT do this. The chlorophyll in the grass clippings will stain our tents when we lay them out on the lawn prior to setting them up. You should mow your lawn no later than 3 days before your event.
Another reason not to mow your lawn right right before we put your tent up: Grass will actually survive all the foot traffic better if it's a little on the long side.
Interior Lighting, Sidewalls and Fencing for Event Tents
A tent by itself is often perfectly adequate for many events. However, we know “adequate” sometimes just isn’t sufficient. With the addition of a few tent accessories, your tent will not only be more practical but also more appealing. Equipped with sidewalls, lighting and decorative fencing, a tent creates a uniquely festive atmosphere and evokes fond memories of childhood trips to the circus. Minus the elephants and trapeze artists, of course.
If your event will run into the evening hours, you will definitely need lighting. We can set up your tent with Globe Lighting or LED Par Lighting. Both create a warm, festive ambiance. The hanging globe lights have a shade to create a warm, diffuse light. Our LED lighting is placed pointing upwards to illuminate the roof of the tent. The light color of the tent reflects the light to create a very pleasing light.
Solid White Sidewalls
Sidewalls transform a tent into a private enclosure. Besides helping to keep bugs from flying into your gathering, sidewalls also keep down wind noise and provide greater protection from rain showers. Sidewalls are also quite useful for keeping uninvited passersby from wandering in or standing outside gawking at your event. One thing to keep in mind, though: sidewalls on a party tent will make it 10 to 15 degrees warmer inside. This is great if it's cold outside, but not so great if it's a hot summer day. If you just want to block out an unappealing view or a side of the tent that borders a neighbor's house, you can opt for sidewalls on just one side of your tent.
Window sidewalls are tent sidewalls with a clear vinyl window. Allowing natural light to enter your tent brightens the ambiance immensely. However, if you are planning to host your event during hot weather months, you should be aware that window sidewalls will increase the temperature inside your tent in the same way solid white sidewalls will increase the temperature--perhaps even more with sunlight streaming through the clear vinyl. If your even will be held in cooler months, no problem. If you will be holding your event during warmer weather, consider having sidewalls only on the sides of your tent you most want covered. You may also want to rent pedestal fans for inside your party tent.
6 ft. Signature Fencing
Our 6 ft. Signature fencing is an elegant way to create an entrance to your tent, enclose an open-sided tent, or delineate areas within your tent for exhibitors to have their own space. These free-standing 6 ft. long fence sections offer a variety of intriguing possibilities both inside and outside your tent.
