Tent Calculation

Category: Information

It all depends on the type of event your hosting. As a rule of thumb we use the chart below as a guide for comfortable seating and is intended for seating only. It does not take in consideration any dance floor, stages, DJ, or buffet tables. We have 2 different types of tents that we offer:

1)Pole Tents, can only be installed on grass and will have 1 or more center poles. Requires a stake at every pole and need about 5 or more feet on the outside perimeter of the tent. Example: a 20X20 Pole requires 25 feet X 25 feet of surface.

2)Frame Tents, although frame tents are a stand alone system. Staking is required, however each side leg does not need to be stake. We can use different forms of staking like : stakes or water barrels, We use the water barrels where using stakes is not allowed or staking is limited. Examples: parking lots, blacktop, concrete, patio decks, pools, tennis courts, etc.

We also offer tents in different colors but they are not listed in the chart below. For more information regarding the tents, please call us at (585)266-4200. We can arrange a site visit to have someone measure the location. Appointments can be set after hours and weekends.

 

This calculator does not include any additional square footage for the DJ, Cake table, Dance Floor, etc.
