Marquee Tents – What Are They?

When you hear the term “marquee tent” you might be asking yourself, what does it mean? If you search the web for the phrase “Marquee Tent” you’ll find various results that are not consistent with each other. A marquee is an addition to a much larger tent structure. Our Marquee tents are often used as entranceways, or small sectioned off areas that belong to a bigger tent structure system. They can even be used to create a sheltered walkway over a set of stairs with our unique and modular assembly features.

Some companies refer to Marquee tents as the type of tent that has peaks and curves with tips that are the tallest point of the tent system. We refer to those as “tension tents” which you can learn more about by clicking here. To the left, you will see an image of a tension tent that has a marquee tent attached to it. The Marquee tent is doubling as an entrance and alleyway to the main tent.

Many of our customers rely on custom tents to provide shelter for various types of venues and events. When it comes to custom tents for events, we have many options to choose from that can make your next event a memorable one. We offer clean top tents, framed tents, and even Marquee tent add-ons that can be used for many purposes. Marquee tents make a great addition to tents for weddings, marketing events, concerts, festivals, conventions and even sporting events. You can truly bring your dream wedding idea to life by choosing to rent or purchase a custom-sized event tent and marquee tent.
