What size tent do I need for a graduation party?
When it comes to choosing a tent for your graduation party, the size you need will depend on the number of guests you’re expecting and the type of party you’re hosting. For an open house style party, you’ll need enough space to accommodate your guests comfortably, with areas for food and drinks, seating, and any activities you have planned. We recommend having enough seating for one third to one half of the expected guests plus any space for food and gift tables. Generally, you can fit 8 guests at an 8ft table or 8 guests at a 60in round table. When planning for a tent in your yard or driveway, keep in mind that the tent will need additional space for staking and securing. Typically an additional 4 – 5 feet on each side will allow for properly securing the tent.
