What The Sail Tent Marquee Company Company Needs to Know

When you decide to hire a tent, a representative of the Carnival will come to survey the site. They’ll measure the total available space and any grade change (if the space you’re tenting is sloped in any way), note the type of surface it will be on, and measure for any connecting canopies you’d like to install between tents or between a tent and a building. They’ll also look for overhead obstructions, such as tree branches or power lines, and indications of any underground utility lines.


  • the location for the tent/marquee should be a flat, level surface with no protrusions and no overhanging trees or other obstruction
  • the ground should be  suitable for taking 3ft tent pegs
  • the ground should not be flooded or impervious to water
  • the ground should have no underground power or utility services within three feet of the surface.
  • the grass will be cut so as to be no more than 2 inches long.
  • there is a safe means of access both to the site and to within the tent(s) location for vehicles
