40′ x 40′ Pole Tent

40x40PoleTentOur 40′ x 40′ tent is a perfectly symmetrical tent, providing interior spaciousness, an elegant single-peak design, and a 22′ cathedral ceiling. This 1600 square foot tent can be used for many different applications, including but not limited to  large graduation parties, bar mitzvahs, small weddings, and church functions.


This tent requires 52′ x 52′ space (footprint) for staking. The installation is quick and easy, allowing you more time to set up your tables and chairs. The tent features a two-piece top made of 16-oz. vinyl and laminated polyester to block out the sun. We provide double web ratchets at each corner of the tent to ensure uniform tensioning. The innovative single-piece center poles allow for quick setup and breakdown, and are more cosmetically appealing than multiple-piece center poles. Fluted aluminum side poles provide a high-quality modern look compared to traditional wood poles that are prone to scratches. Perimeter lighting can also be added to help make your evening events safer and more appealing to your guests. Solid and cathedral windowed walls are also available to add weather protection and style.


40′ x 40′ tents can seat a MAXIMUM of 128 guests around our 60″ round tables, 160 guests around our 8′ banquet tables, and 200 guests with chairs only (ceremony seating which includes isle).

Round tables take up 100 square feet, banquet tables take up 75 square feet, and ceremony seating takes 8 square feet per chair. If you are unsure of the appropriate tent size for your event, please call us and we can help make the proper selection. Our experts can also help you with your layout and calculate the space needed for your desired concessions: DJ, photo booths, gift tables, etc.

This tent is designed to be installed on a soft surface (e.g., grass) so that it can be staked properly. Our installers drive stakes into the ground around the perimeter to secure the tent. IMPORTANT: Ward’s Rental Center DOES NOT assume responsibility for underground utilities. Please identify all underground structures, cabling, and/or pipes at least two weeks before installation. Call Miss Digg @ 811 to schedule a free layout of where your utilities are located. Please note that Miss Digg does not mark sprinkler lines, well supply lines, or any underground utilities installed without permits. It is your responsibility to be present on site and let your installer know what area(s) to avoid.
