Wisconsin Party & Event Tent Planning Guide

Choosing the Right Size Tent for Your Event

Our party rental tents come in a variety of shapes and sizes. Choosing the right one for your event can seem more complicated than picking out table linens for a wedding reception, but we’re always available to help you sort through all the possibilities and determine which style and size will work best for you. To get you started with pre-planning your event, the following guidelines will give you good idea of the approximate area you’ll need for each person under your tent or canopy:

TENT TIP: Plan For The Worst…Weather Wise
When you’re deciding on what size of tent to get for your event, plan as if it’s going to be raining all day. Trust us, the last thing you want is a freak storm making 100 people run for cover to a tent only designed to hold 50. If anything, get a tent slightly larger than what you think you’ll need. The extra space is always a good thing.

Number of guests: Recommended tent size:
50
20’ x 40’ (seated), 20’ x 30 (standing)
100 30’ x 50’ (seated), 30’ x 30’ (standing)
150 40’ x 60’ (seated), 40’ x 40’ (standing)
200 
40' x 80' (seated), 40' x 60' (standing)
300  60' x 80' (seated), 60' x 60' (standing)


Keep in mind this is just a rough guide and may not be applicable to all events. Our staff will assist you in making the final selection after we have a better understanding of your event. Our goal is always to help you make the right decisions based on your specific event—whether it’s a backyard gathering for 50 guests or a huge gala for 500.
