Renting A Tent

A tent not only gives you protection from bad weather, but on those bright sunny days, it provides protection from the harmful UV rays of the sun. Plan your wedding or special occasion well ahead, and book your tent rental with Barrie Tent & Awning in Central Ontario as early as possible so that you can have the best selection of sizes available.

There are a number of different sizes and styles of tents that you can rent for the weekend which you can install with the help of a friend or a neighbour. The larger 30’ and 40’ wide tents, which are required for larger functions, must be installed by qualified personnel and may require a building permit.

Do-It-Yourself 10’ x 10’ or 10’ x 20’ Sun Shelter Rentals

Are you having a small gathering and want the option of having some temporary shelter from the sun or the chance of rain? Maybe one of our weekend sun shelter rentals will do the trick?

These sturdy frame tents can be installed in about 20 minutes following simple instructions by matching the colour-coded poles to the frame fittings. All of our sun shelters come with removable solid walls that clip around the perimeter for great versatility or they can be left completely off if not needed.

All tent components come in three convenient packages that will fit in almost any vehicle. There is one 5’ x 1’ x 1’ bag for the poles, one tote with the fittings and stakes, and one 2’ x 3’ x 3’ fabric carrying bag with the top cover and walls.

Tent Seating

A good rule of thumb for most functions is to

allow 15 sq. ft. per person.

This will give you room for food tables, bar area

and music set-up

Tent FYI

Are there underground lines?

Have the area checked for electrical, telephone, natural gas, and cable television lines.

If your home has a septic system, that area may

or may not be the best place for you to install

your tent.

Do you have enough washrooms available?

One or two bathrooms will not be enough if you

have 150 guests and if you have a septic system.

You should consider portable washrooms so

you do not overload your system.

Does your home insurance policy cover you?

Check with your insurance agent to make sure

you have adequate coverage for liability and

property damage in case of an accident.

Do you need a building permit for your event?

Some municipalities are now requiring building permits and engineered drawings for temporary structures such as tents. Consider contacting your local municipality for confirmation.


A tent is the place to be for memorable occasions. Choose the location, then select the tent size, style and colour to create the ambiance you want for your event.
