Just because there’s snow and ice outside, doesn’t mean you can’t plan an outdoor event. Keeping a rental party tent at a comfortable temperature for your guests isn’t an impossible task when you work with a rental company near you.

Rent a Frame Tent
Not all tent rentals are constructed the same. During the winter months, most people arrange for the event tent to be set up on a paved surface. After all, it’s much easier to plow a parking lot than it is to shovel snow off a lawn. For outdoor winter events, our tent rental company recommend renting a frame tent because it doesn’t require you drill holes into the frozen ground. For , you may want to hide the frame tent’s metal support structure by strategically draping fabric for a romantic aesthetic.
Rent Space Heaters
When the weather outside is frightful, rent space heaters. It’s important that you get the right size heater so your guests don’t freeze.

Keep in mind that it may make more sense to rent two small heaters (as opposed to one big one) so the space is heated evenly and efficiently. Again, an event rental company will be able to help you with this.

Thankfully, space heaters can help you transform a party tent in the middle of a parking lot into an oasis from the cold.
Power Heaters with a Generator
A rental generator is used to bring electricity to places where electricity isn’t available. For example, a generator can be used to power the space heaters you’ll need for your outdoor party tent. When you rent a generator, make sure that you get the right size for how many space heaters you need to power.
Circulate Heat with Fans
While it may seem weird to use fans in the middle of winter, it will help regulate the temperature inside the rent a tent that doesn’t have soaring ceilings. That way, all your heated air won’t be trapped near the ceiling where the fans can’t reach.. Since heat rises, you’ll want to position fans so that they circulate the warm air that rises to the tent’s ceiling. Make sure that you
