What tent would you recommend to display artwork at an outdoor festival?
By Kevin on July 2, 2013

Answer:
An all time best seller is our Caravan Displayshade. This unit is a great middle of the road option. It is plenty sturdy and is not overly expensive. Unfortunately, though, we do not offer any of the wildly popular grid-like display screens for hanging your artwork.

Types of Shelters

This is an extremely broad category, but there are definitely some basic types of outdoor structures to consider. In this section you can look at party-planning shelters like pole tents, frame tents, Vista Peak models, Star Shade canopies, pop up canopies, and many, many more. Most shelters of this type are dedicated to people who are interested in planning weddings, rehearsal dinners, reunions, and the like, or to people who frequent craft fairs, outdoor festivals, business expos, tailgates, and related events. That certainly isn’t to say that none of these structures are suitable for other uses – they certainly are – it’s just a general overview of some popular applications.

There’s another set of shelters like portable garages, camping tents, EZ up tents, and other generally smaller structures designed more for personal or family use. There are all sorts of shelters in this category that are perfect for outdoor meals, family gatherings, providing shelter for a car, boat, or ATV, or other personal uses. Again, many of these canopies have more than one use, this is intended simply to provide a quick insight into how many outdoor enthusiasts choose to use these smaller shelters.

Outdoor Accessories

Once you have the structure in place, you need to think about the rain gutters, sidewalls, weight bags, stake kits, zipper panels, and window panels that can take your shelter to the next level. There are accessories and add-ons that add structural stability, some that essentially create an enclosed semi-permanent outdoor building, and others that add an elegant visual element to whatever image you’re trying to create for an important outdoor event. Almost every canopy of every type can be improved upon in some way with the right accessory, and almost every manufacturer you can think of has a complete line of accessories that are appropriate for use with the various models they produce.

As you can see, there are a lot of considerations packed into this one exciting category. It doesn’t matter, though, whether you already know what you want, whether you’re shopping to compare prices, or whether you have no idea what kind of shelter you need for whatever upcoming use you intend to put it to. Simply start looking here in the Tents section, use the various filters and search tools that are available, and start narrowing the selection down from the extremely general to the totally specific. You’ll be surprised to find that, before you even know it, you’ll have found the perfect tent for you and for your next outdoor event.
