Tent Lighting 101

Tents can be a fun and fantastic way to celebrate an event, but have you thought about the lighting for the tent? What are your options and the logistics involved? Since each tent manufacturer is different and location can have varying power requirements, it's important to work with a company like Event Lights USA to ensure your needs are met every step of the way.

When it comes to lighting, many tent companies provide cheap, mismatched color lighting as an add-on, and often use bland white light for basic illumination. EventLightsUSA can elevate your tent event with professional-grade lighting options. We offer uplighting around the poles in an open tent or along the walls in a closed-off walled tent. Our Bistro Lighting with dimmers can create a unique ambiance, and our high-quality mounted lighting can wash the tent with colors and patterns, perfect for dance floors and tables alike. Additionally, we offer pattern washes projected onto the roof of the tent to create a stunning visual effect. With full lighting control, we can set the perfect mood to ensure your event looks brilliant.

Regarding power, we can help you plan your power consumption needs by addressing questions such as:

1. How many vendors will require power in the tent? (e.g., Photo Booth, DJ, Kitchen)

2. How long will power be needed for the event?

3. Will the event draw power from a nearby source, and is it capable of meeting your needs?

4. Do you need a generator? If so, what size and fuel capacity? How far must it be placed from the tent to minimize noise?

We are experts in power consumption and lighting, and we will help answer these questions to ensure the success of your event. Contact us today for lighting services in Washington DC, Maryland, and Virginia.
