The elegant look of a high pole tent make it a great fit for beautiful events.

A high pole tent is great for weddings or other large gatherings because they offer an elegant canopy to provide shade and shelter. They are available with or without side walls and they are also compatible with many of our tent accessories like dance floors, lighting, and stages. These pole tents have center poles extending from the ground to the peak giving them that iconic high peak look.

When is a high peak pole tent a good fit?

A pole tent is the most cost effective option for larger tents, so we always recommend them when the event site is suitable. These pole tents have a very high wind tolerance. Since they need to be staked down, they are best suited for events on grass. They can be staked in asphalt, but they require more anchor points than a frame tent, which increases the set-up cost associated with drilling. Check out this video for information on anchoring options. If your application does not allow for staking, check out our frame tent options.

What do I need to know before renting a high peak pole tent?

Each of these canopies utilize an 8′ tall leg and is compatible with our standard tent side walls. The tent tops are made of 17 oz. blockout white vinyl so they are they are not a good option if you want a translucent top. Because of their size and complexity, they will need to be set-up by our team of tenting professionals. When selecting a site, keep in mind that they must be anchored with stakes in grass, dirt, or asphalt and they need an additional 7′ all the way around for guy lines. If you are looking for a do-it-yourself option, check out our 20′ x 30′ ATC pole tent.

What sizes are available?

The high peak pole tent is available in sizes ranging from 30′ x 30′ to 40′ x 80′. The guide below shows the available sizes and information for each size. The guest capacity can vary greatly depending on layout. So if you want round tables comfortably spaced you will not fit as many guests. On the other hand, you can optimize your space by using banquet tables set up end-to-end. If you need a theater style layout (for lectures, ceremonies, etc.) then you will be able to accommodate the most guests.

One thing to keep in mind with a pole tent, is that the poles go from the ground to the peak, so the pole will reduce the number of tables you can fit under the tent. Frame tents will always provide a higher capacity. On the other hand, if you are looking for something smaller check out our ATC canopy or frame tent options.

How can a high peak pole tent enhance my event?

Here are some ideas to help make the most of a high peak pole tent for a variety of events

Weddings

This type of tent is excellent for weddings with 80 or more guests. Keep in mind that if you plan to hold a wedding ceremony, the center poles will obstruct the view of some guests. If this is a concern, then a frame tent or festival tent may be a better fit.

When requesting a quote, leave a note about what else will require space inside the tent. For example, a guest book, cake table, stage, dance floor, serving area, or reception line. However, sometimes it makes more sense to use multiple tents instead of a larger tent. This is a common practice when caterers need covered space. You could add a 10′ x 20′ frame tent, or a 20′ x 20′ festival tent adjacent to the main tent to provide an out-of-sight space for the cater to work but still giving them immediate access to the dining area. A 10′ x 20′ frame tent can also make a great entryway into the tent, providing a space for the guests to sign in and/or wait to be seated.

Sidewalls can also be added to block the sun or breeze on some or all sides of the tent but on hot days it is nice to keep the tent open, but you may want a sidewall to serve as a backdrop behind a reception line or block the setting sun. Sidewalls are also available with windows.

Company or Community Banquets

This type of tent is a great fit for appreciation banquets in a park or grass area. When requesting a quote, leave a note about what else will require space inside the tent. For example, a stage, dance floor, serving area, or displays. However sometimes, it makes more sense to use multiple tents instead of a larger tent. This is a common practice when caterers need covered space. You could add a 10′ x 20′ frame tent, or a 20′ x 20′ festival tent adjacent to the main tent to provide an out-of-sight space for the cater to work but still giving them immediate access to the dining area.

Sidewalls can also be added to block the sun or breeze on some or all sides of the tent but on hot days it is nice to keep the tent open, but you may want a sidewall to serve as a backdrop behind a presenter or block the setting sun. Sidewalls are also available with windows.
