5 Crucial Things to Look for in Finding the Best Large Tent

With a larger tent, the stakes are higher - that’s why we take extra care to craft tents with premium materials to withstand countless events.

Ultimately, it's about having peace of mind, knowing that the tent can not only accommodate large groups, but is also durable and secure, providing a safe shelter for your guests. 

  1. Treated vinyl: 16oz. blockout PVC vinyl tent provides much-needed shade from the hot sun. Our UV-resistant and flame-retardant fabric can withstand the elements, so it's more than just a shelter - it's a dependable product that holds up against weather over time, ready to celebrate countless events.
  2. 1000 denier: Denier is a measurement of tent fabric durability  - the tighter the weave, the stronger the fabric. At American Tent, our fabrics have a 1000 denier rating, meaning we're offering you the strongest PVC vinyl available. It's not just fabric; it's a promise of resilience for multiple events.
  3. Sturdy foundation: Thanks to anodized aluminum tent poles, our tents have a solid foundation. While most small to medium sized tents use standard 2” poles, we go a step further with wider diameter tent poles for that extra bit of reinforcement on larger tents. Our tents stand firm against the wind and rain, a testament to our commitment to stability and safety.
  4. Secure tie downs: A tent's strength lies in secure tie downs. Our 42” double-headed steel stakes and 2” nylon ratchet straps offer 1,200 lbs of holding power per stake. And for those times when stakes can't be used, trust our engineered tent ballasting system to securely anchor your tent on hard surfaces like concrete.
  5. A trusted partner: When you're responsible for providing a safe space for a large group, you need more than a tent; you need a reliable partner. At American Tent, event safety isn't just a feature; it's our top priority. We constantly adapt, daring to challenge the norm to bring you a product that's not just safe but also a leader in innovation. 

The 4 Types of Large Tents You Should Consider (We Offer Them All)

When it comes to selecting the best large tent, it’s important to be aware that each tent type has its own unique style and functionality. To pick the best option for your event, consider ease of setup, how long it will be installed, and where you plan to set it up. It's not just about choosing a tent; it's about choosing an event experience that matches your vision. 

So, get ready to explore the perfect blend of practicality and style with our top 4 large tent styles. 

  1. Pole: As one of the most popular large tent styles with sizes up to 8,000 sq ft, pole tents stand out with their steep center poles that create captivating peaks. However, it's key to remember that these same poles can also become obstacles or visual barriers during your event. Additionally, remember that pole tents are best for event setups on soft, grassy surfaces or any location where you can use tent stakes.
  2. Frame: Frame tents are an outstanding choice for hosting large groups, thanks to their design offering 100% usable floor space underneath. And to top it off, frame tents bring versatility, adapting to various setup surfaces, including hard ground like parking lots or artificial turf, where staking isn't an option. They are frequently chosen for parties and events, but their durability and capacity for long-term setup also make them excellent options for extended storage space.
  3. Clear: Our clear top tents offer not just versatility in setup location and vast interior space, but also a visually stunning experience. The transparent top is a real showstopper, beautifully blending the natural outdoor light with the comfort of your sheltered tent. However, it's essential to keep in mind that clear vinyl typically does not have the same long-term durability as 16oz. white tent material so clear tents are optimal for periodic events.
  4. Keder: Keder tents stand out as the top option for long term events. One of the key features that set keder tents apart from other tents is their track system that makes installation a breeze and creates a polished look. Furthermore, keder tents are designed with practicality in mind for inclement weather. If there's a sudden change in the weather, like an approaching storm, you can swiftly remove the tent top without needing to disassemble your frame.

The Best Large Tents to Fit Every Business Need

When it comes to your business, having a reliable tent is like having a secret super power, offering the flexibility to provide protective shelter or host spontaneous events with ease

One of the most favorable aspects of our large tents is their adaptability in size, thanks to a modular design. This feature is a game-changer, allowing you to tailor the tent's size to your specific event needs. For smaller gatherings, simply remove a section of your tent to create a more intimate event setting. It's about having the right size for the right occasion without compromising on style or comfort.

On the flip side, our large tents grow with you and your business. For instance, if your outdoor worship service at church is attracting more attendees, expand your tent to accommodate everyone comfortably. This adaptability is a cost-effective solution, eliminating the need for purchasing an entirely new tent by only getting the essentials.
