How do you install lights in a tent?

Updated: Mar 29

While there are a great variety of products and options to add lighting to your tent, we offer a quick and easy solution. Most events take place during the day but there are also night markets, after parties and late night events where you might find yourself using a pop up canopy. We call them shelter lights and they are LED lights that attach to your canopy with a sturdy Velcro strap. It is compatible with all of our canopies and it is easy to adapt to any pop up tent.

Lighting for a Big Tent

On the other hand if you are looking for lighting on a larger tent we offer different lighting options for you to choose from. For the most part most of our clients use flood lights or light strips that you can attach to the frame of the tent. Also, if you are outside of our service area, you can call your local tent rental company, they should definitely have options.

Our local service area for tent rentals is 30 miles from our facility. We offer complete and professional tent installations, tent washing (dirt buildup occurs as time passes,) and lighting. Just let us know what you have in mind for your tent and we will help you achieve that vision. Also, if you are outside of our service area, we can ship you the tent with a freight company although to be completely honest, your best bet is to go with your own local tent rentals company since shipping can be somewhat expensive. As always, if you have any questions, let us know. We are here to help and will provide you with price quotes, ideas and answers to the questions that you might have about tent lighting or general tent questions.
