Pop Up Tents For Any Occasion

Tents are not just for camping. A good rental pop up tent can be utilized at a swap meet, a trade show, flea market, bazaar, or other community event. They can protect your merchandise from the elements and create a homey (or boutique-y) air on the go.
Before getting started, it is essential to know what kind of tent you are looking for. Not all drapings are created equally. The proper canopy for the right event can keep you calm, cool, and dry, whereas the wrong tent can spell trouble.
A pop up tent canopy is an open-air covering that generally stands on a set of exposed poles. Perfect as carports, overhead hangings for specific items, and certain outdoor activities, the canopy is as barebones as you can get in the canvassing world. Canopies come in a number of sizes, ranging from a bed canopy (to keep out environmental factors in your room) to backyard canopies for weddings and other large events.
Pop-up tents, characterized by their peaked top, are another great option for protection. These strong, durable shelters are waterproof, rust resistant, and easy to assemble, even by yourself. Instant pop-up tents are a quick and effective way to guard your merchandise from sun, heat, rain, or cold.
Party tents are a bit more de rigueur in their set up. Often enclosed pop up tent shelters, party tents turn any outdoor location into a luxury accommodation in a matter of seconds. Party tents offer your guests the space the outdoors supplies in order to move around and be comfortable without risking the elements.
Each type of pop up tent comes with its own function and appropriate use. A canopy may be more ideal for small, very temporary set ups such as a flea market or yard sale. Pop up tents can work well for week-long events or somewhat permanent lean-tos. Party tents are fantastic for circuses, weddings, sweet 16s, or any event in which some additional space is needed. For all these, a great tent is the first line of protection against weather.

Things to consider when looking at pop up tent canopies:
  1. Make sure the tent has built in foot pads.  Some don't and they should.
  2. Keep the top on after it has been installed for the first time.  There is no need to take the top off after that.
  3. If you need to use the tant many times a month, make sure you get a heavy duty frame. If you are using the pop up tent for recreation at the beach and a seldom pic nic, choose a light duty frame to save money.
  4. When opening, pull the center of the frame, not the corners.
