A clear top tent is designed for frame tents.
A full 10 x 10 pole tent package starts at $660. Depending on your uses and needs, the price will go up with the cost of materials, style, and customization options.
Sidewalls are walls you can purchase for your tent. In the tenting business, we usually refer to just the tent top as the “tent.” A fully covered tent--eg, one with walls--would be one with both the top and the sides, or “sidewalls.”
Yes! Awesome parties start with American Tent. Whether it’s a wedding, graduation, or any other celebration, we have the tent for you. Choose from our wide variety of styles--including clear top--and customize with sidewalls for the party of your dreams.
Our standard tents are made from 16 oz pvc blockout vinyl.
Our poles are made from galvanized steel or anodized aluminum depending on the type of tent and pole options selected.
Sometimes! Most of our frame tents will work with “west coast” style set ups. However, it’s best to call a sales manager to determine for sure.
We don’t offer different colors or wood options at this time. But stay tuned!
Sailcloth and canvas are gorgeous materials for a tent. Unfortunately, they come at a premium price and are not as durable as vinyl. When we are able to produce them in a way that meets both our price and quality standards, we hope to offer these sharp-looking options.
We’d be glad to send you a sample box. Request one here.
Believe it or not, there is no difference! All these terms mean the same thing: A tent with a high peak supported by a pole and cable system at frame level.
Pagoda does mean weather in Russian! A pagoda tent features a stately peak supported by a cone emerging from a crossed frame at the center.
Customization & Beyond
One of the many ways American Tent distinguishes ourselves from our competitors is our ability to design and engineer custom tents for our clients’ exact specifications. Talk to our salespeople about the perfect tent for you.
Absolutely! We work with a local, Green Bay-based print shop to produce your logo in high quality material that looks great on our tents. Please send logo files in .ai or .eps format.
We love pink tents! In fact, if you’re looking for a tent for a breast-cancer related event, talk to us about special pricing. If you’d like any other color, we can help you find it.
Set-up & Maintenance
Yes we do. Our vinyl is 16 oz, which complies with industry standards on commercial grade tents.
Tent set up requirements can be commensurate with skill level. Some tents can be set up with just one person. Others require a crew. We’re pleased to offer a frame jack from our McVey line of accessories that can help when you’re short staffed.
Great question! Pole tents are ideal for grass setups, whereas frame tents can be used on grass as well as concrete and blacktop surfaces--even sand!--with the help of our Tent Ballasting System.
With proper care, tents can last years. The following factors can impact your tent’s longevity:
- How long it stays up
- How the customer handles it
Tents and snow don’t always go together, but in cases of less than a few inches of dry snow, our tents will be okay. Tents must be brushed clear of snow to prevent damage.
We’ve been known to have orders manufactured and shipped within 48 hours of your purchase, but our current lead time on tents and sidewalls is one week. Shipping times vary and change daily. Please let us know if your order is a rush job, and please be aware that custom orders will take longer. Please also note that shipping times have been impacted by above average demands on shipping channels caused by COIVD-19.
We’ve got ambitious expansion plans, but as of right now, everything comes from our plant in Green Bay, WI.

Good question! It depends on what your objectives are. Pole tents are great for:
- Quick & Easy Setup
- Larger Sizes - Lengths up to 200 feet and beyond
Frame tents, however, offer:
- More Usable Square Footage - No center poles to work around
- Long Term Use - Tent frame supports tent top
- Multi-Surface Use - Use with Tent Ballasting System on concrete/blacktop surfaces
This is the eternal question. As much as we’d like to sell you a tent, it might not be your best option. First, ask yourself if you can see using the tent ever again beyond your first (only?) event. If you’re celebrating Grandma’s 100th in the backyard, that might qualify as a “one and done” occasion unless it looks like she’ll make it to 150. If you think you might be able to use your tent more than once or use it for an extended period of time, call a local rental company and get an estimate for a tent rental. Purchasing a tent can pay for itself fairly quickly, but it only makes sense if you have the storage, ability, and desire to become a tent owner.
