Dedicated to Ensuring Your Event is Successful

Marsh Lake Tents & Events is dedicated to ensuring your event is a successful one. Here are the answers to some of our most frequently asked questions:

Q. What size of tent do we need for our event?

A. To ensure a successful event, you must first take into consideration the following:

  • 4 square feet per person for a stand-up, mingling event
  • 8 square feet per person for a sit-down dinner (rectangular tables)
  • 12 square feet per person for a sit-down dinner (round tables)
  • 15% of space is required for aisles & fire exits
  • Extra square footage is required for bar areas, food preparation, stages, dance floors & displays

A good rule of thumb is to multiply the amount of people by the square footage required for your event. This will give you a rough idea of the correct tent size. We have all sizes available in stock.

Q. Where can you set up your tents?

A. Marsh Lake Tents & Events can set up anywhere! We are a completely mobile operation and can offer our services at any site that suits your needs. We provide the unique experience that our customers are looking for. We have set up on frozen lakes, golf courses, playing fields, backyards and in the Yukon and Alaskan wilderness areas. A northern-based company that is experienced in issues such as permafrost and ecologically-sensitive areas, we are an environmentally-friendly business. We are able to transport our equipment anywhere in North America.

Q. Do you set up events during the winter?

A. Yes, we do. Marsh Lake Tents & Events can supply enough BTU’s of heat to keep you warm in one of our tents at -35 degrees Celsius. We have engineered a portable heating system specific to the supply of heat required to maintain the comfort level of an indoor event. A truly unique, memorable experience is hosting an event in a tent during the winter, especially in the Yukon. Contact us for more details, including our pricing and availability!
