Planning a corporate event on site at your headquarters or at an event facility can be challenging, especially when seeking out a large obstacle free interior space to meet your specific needs. This is where tenting comes into play. We offer a wide range of sizes and styles that can accommodate theater style or table seating set ups based on the special demands of your site location. Our large clear span structures are ideal for large events. By including our partners in the events industry, we can create a space that is sure to rival any convention hall or hotel banquet room.

Fundraising events are a great way to bring people together and raise awareness and funds for particular causes. Our tents draw attention to your event because of their bright white color and sleek modern appearances. We understand the importance of tenting large groups of people for the events in life that continue to grow with each passing year. We have been fortunate enough to cover some very special fundraising events that have raised hundreds of thousands of dollars for various causes and individuals. Take for example our experience tenting events at the state capitol, where multiple non-profit organizations host their walks and runs, is one of the reasons our customers return year after year. But our service is not limited to the capitol; we cover fundraising events in multiple cities, parks and stadiums throughout Northern California. We got you covered when you need it most!

Music, beer, wine and street festivals are a staple of life in Northern California where events are a 365 day-a-year occurrence! We have made covering outdoor festivals one of our top services and nobody carries the inventory we have built since 1990. By utilizing festival style tents with their swooping lines and flagpole centers, we can create a uniform look that meets the needs of your festival. These tents come in sizes that are 10x, 15x and 20x. Incorporating frame style tents within your festival, we can cover larger breakout areas. Our crews are skilled at installing large quantities of tents in record times, both safely and efficiently. Our experience has made us a leader in tent rentals when it comes to festivals.

Events are an essential part of life, especially in California. We take a great deal of pride tenting all those special events in life. Your special day is important and we get that. We try to take the worry out of your planning. In most cases the tent is the most important part of the event. At Made in the Shade it is our goal to provide our customers with exactly what will fit their special event needs.
