Size and Capacity Information
Pole Tent Sketch
Shown above: a 20' x 30' pole tent.  Includes
2 center poles, 10 side poles and 14 ground
stakes.
Several sizes of tents are available for your special event.  However, there are several factors
that must be considered when selecting the appropriate size of tent.  A very general rule of
thumb is to allow for approximately 10 square foot of tent per person for a seated event when
using standard banquet tables.  That value is increased to approximately 12 square foot per
person when using round tables, therefore more space will be required.  Additional square
footage needs to be added for other things you wish to place inside the tent.  Below are a few
things to consider...
  • Dance Floor
  • Band or DJ
  • Bar or Beverage Area
  • Cake Table
  • Gift Table
  • Video Screen / Flat Screens
  • Stages or Platforms
  • PA Systems
  • Special Lighting
  • Portable Heaters
  • Trash Cans
SHOWN ABOVE: Inside corner view of a 40' x 100' blue & white
pole tent filled with standard 6 foot white banquet tables and all
white folding chairs.  A maximum recommended capacity using
banquet tables for this tent is estimated at 400 people which still
allows room for food and beverage areas.
