We offer a variety of clear top tents! These are wonderful for Fall – Early Spring events, especially paired with clear or cathedral sidewalls and tent heaters. They and are not recommended for daytime use May – September due to the heat. The clear top, while beautiful, creates a greenhouse effect and becomes extremely hot under the tent, even on an otherwise temperate day. If you do want to use one during these months, plan your event for the evening, and be sure to add tent fans! Ask about adding tent air conditioning.
