The tent size you choose will depend on a host of factors. It isn’t always correct to just pick the ones that are the largest. Use the following examples as a guide the next time you manage a gathering.

For 120 people, the size is 20 x 30 (sq footage 600). 20 x 40 (sq footage 800) is ideal if the people number 160. If it’s 240, the tent should be 30 x 40 (1200 sq ft). Tent size 30 x 60 (1800 sq ft) is suitable if the people number 360.

Notes on the tent size: if there is going to be a dance floor, there should be 3 square feet of space for every individual. If there’s a band, the space should be 10 square feet per individual. For drums, it must be 20 square feet; grand piano, about 100 sq feet; for a bar, it should be 30 square feet.
