Looking for a classic or modern white tent rental for your wedding, gala, corporate meeting, anniversary party, or other special occasion? We’ve got a variety of different sizes and styles, all cleaned and maintained on-premises with our state-of-the-art tent washer.
Tent rental prices listed here are for usual and customary installations. Decks, rocky terrain, and other site irregularities may incur an additional fee. Portage will be charged if the event site is not easily accessible. Please flag all gas and electric lines; Dig Safe can be reached by calling 811, and must be called 72 hours in advance of your installation. All tents must be anchored to the ground. Tent stakes are 42” long and reach far into the ground. If staking is not possible, ballasting (weights) is required for frame and structure tents.
Permits are necessary for outdoor events, and event hosts are responsible for obtaining them from the town in which the event will be held and for covering all permitting costs. Nonpublic utilities are the responsibility of the property owner and must be located by the property owner prior to tent installations.
For midsized and smaller parties and weddings, traditional pole tents offer an elegant peaked tent top. Pole tents work well on grass or in fields.
Traditional frame tents are the best choice for tented events that take place on hard surfaces such as parking lots or driveways, or close to buildings. Brides who want to walk down an aisle will prefer frame tents, as there are no center poles under the tent top.
Long the standard of excellence for tented events, Evolution pole tents offer dramatic peaked ceilings, which makes them the ideal choice for weddings, including industrial weddings, and galas. Evolution pole tents are a favorite with event planners and designers, as the twin-pole system offers extra anchor points for chandeliers, specialty lights, and tent draping.
Do you dream of seeing the stars while sitting under your wedding tent? Clear top tents have become very popular, as they allow more light into the tent and they allow our customers to capitalize on the lovely views in the Berkshires while dining or dancing. From small to large, Classical Tents offers a wide variety of clear top tent sizes.
Inspired by the sea, with sculptured peaks and wooden center and side poles, these tents glow when lit. For beauty and elegance, this is the tent to rent. Classical Tents offers many sizes of sailcloth tents for your party, whether small or large. Rent a smaller round sailcloth tent for the cocktail hour, and a larger oval sailcloth tent for the reception or gala.
Structure tents offer maximum protection from the weather while maintaining their structural integrity and elegance. They feature tensioned sidewall and roof panels, and their 10’ side height offers unobstructed views. The gabled ends can be clear or white, and clear sections are available for tent tops (call for clear tent pricing).
Our rectangular and round custom-built all-wood tables with turned legs are very popular with our customers. Our tavern tables, built from reclaimed barn wood planks, are a hit with our customers as well! And the standard banquet tables, sweetheart tables, and round tables are staples of our inventory.
We stock specialty bars in copper and steel, or the new wine barrel and wood slab style. Additionally, we have our always popular, custom-built rustic wooden bars.
Keep your tent toasty and your guests comfortable all evening long! A tent heater is a must for spring and fall, and unseasonably chilly or rainy weather. We offer two styles of heaters: those that blow air for use inside of tents, and mushroom heaters for the open air, which guests can stand around to stay warm.
We’re excited to announce our partnership with AFR Event Furnishings! Their versatile, modern collections—lounge groupings, tables, bar setups, outdoor furniture, and more—transform any space from the ordinary to the extraordinary.
In house, Classical Tents offers a limited selection of lounge furniture, including leather chairs; wooden coffee tables and end tables; and white, brown, and black 4’x4’’ ottomans.
We carry two styles of dance floor, with a range of sizes available. Your dance floor will be professionally installed indoors, or under your tent to follow and blend in with the lay of the land. Prices may vary on uneven land.
Classical Tents has almost never seen a site we couldn’t create a floored tent for. From gorges that cut through a field to swimming pools that have to be covered, we’ve worked with it all! If your band needs a raised stage to perform on, we can provide that too. Floored events require site inspections and custom quotes well in advance of the event date.

Because caterers often need convection ovens to work their kitchen magic, we carry tabletop and electric ovens in small and large sizes. If your caterer needs a stovetop to cook on, inquire about our six-burner ovens. And if it’s a large pot of water that you need to boil, consider renting our burners on legs. We also have proofers and rolling racks, both of which are ideal of holding sheet pans of food.
Site inspections are required to accurately quote flooring. Our ever expanding line of flooring options can help you level out difficult spots on your property. Guests will feel the difference as they spend the night in your floored tent! Our experienced floor installers have covered it all, from small tents on level sites, to multiple tents on very challenging sites.
Two Choices: One follows the lay of the land, the other is perfectly level and is best for challenging sites.
Laydown Flooring: A wooden base that follows the lay of the land. Cover with astro turf, carpet, or barn board sections.
Stage Sections: We have floored the side of mountains using our stage sections. Your floor will be perfectly even using this base.
To make the base a finished product.
Astro Turf: Green & Black are standard. Tan and other colors cost a bit more.
Barn Board Sections: Use on top of the laydown flooring or staging sections to make a rustic look. Carpet: Many colors available, schedule a showroom visit to see samples.
