How to Use Outdoor Party Tents to Throw an Awesome Party


When it comes to having a party, the idea of holding it in the open air is definitely appealing, but it may also intimidate you because of annoying bugs and unpleasant weather. Actually, a party held outdoors can be as pleasing as one held indoors. What you need is an outdoor party tent.


A tent is a temporary structure comprised of a covering made of pliable materials or fabric that is supported by mechanical means such as poles, metal frames, beams, air, columns, arches, ropes or cables. An outdoor party tent is generally a large tent used to provide spacious room for accommodating guests of parties held in the open air. An outdoor party tent is usually characterized by portability, ease of assembly and installation, and excellent waterproofing and sunburn protection performance to meet the demands for the shelters of a party.

What Makes COSCO Outdoor Party Tents a Must for a Party

COSCO Shipping Aluminum Co., Ltd. was founded in 1998 COSCO Shipping Aluminum Co., Ltd. was founded in 1998. Tents have been one of our core business since 2010. Equipped with experience in developing and manufacturing aluminum products over the past 20 years, we have been committed to providing a wide range of quality tents for over 80 countries and regions all over the world. COSCO Shipping Aluminum boasts a whole set of tent manufacturing techniques, including design, aluminum extrusion, anodizing, machining, PVC cutting & welding, hardware fabrication, and assembling.


COSCO outdoor party tents have been ones of the best-selling tents for party use on the market. Based on the design of traditional tents that have gone through thousands of years, we have made a large number of improvements and innovations to our outdoor party tents.

Designs & Styles

As is known, the frame of a tent has a direct impact on the design and performance of the tent. Owing to the advanced aluminum processing technology COSCO has developed and abundant experience in the industry accumulated in the past twenty years, COSCO has developed outdoor party tents with various frame designs - polygonal, curved, cambered, pagoda-shaped, double-decker style… You can always find a design that fancies your eyes and suits your needs.

Advanced Technology & Best Materials 


COSCO outdoor party tents are manufactured with the most advanced technology and the best materials ever found in the industry and on the market. There have been many industry changes and trends over the past 35 years that have affected the design, engineering, and aesthetics of tents. Probably the single biggest change occurred in the early 1980s with the huge switchover from tents being manufactured with gala canvas to the new fabric of choice - vinyl - and of course predominantly white vinyl. Some of the key characteristics or advantages of vinyl over canvas today include; increased durability, inherent flame retardance, and ease of maintenance and cleaning. COSCO is both an inheritor of the legacy of traditional outdoor party tents, but also a pioneer and innovator in the development of modern outdoor party tents with new materials and techniques. COSCO adopts reinforced and reliable extruded aluminum as the main materials and utilizes anodized finish treatment technology for the manufacturing of our outdoor party tents. As for the cover, we use double PVC coated fabrics, which are in accordance with the flame retardant standard of B1/M2. 


Perfect Protection

COSCO outdoor party tents provide perfect protection from the elements. Inclement weather tends to stop by at the wrong time, such as strong winds and downfalls. You should also mind out uninvited mosquitoes, bugs, bees, and insects if the party is scheduled to be held in the evening. COSCO outdoor party tents have excellent performance in terms of durability, erosion resistance, waterproofing, wind resistance, flame retardance, and ultraviolet resistance, which enables you to cope with harsh weather conditions, but also unexpected dangers that may be caused by improper use of fire and electricity. Moreover, mosquitos and other bugs will inevitably crash your outdoor party by buzzing around the guests and the food table. By choosing COSCO outdoor party tents with clear windows and doors, you are able to ensure that guests aren't annoyed by the little pests and the venue has a good lighting condition.


Spaciousness & Models


COSCO outdoor party tents are designed to provide spaciousness for your party. According to the different supporting models, outdoor party tents fall into two types: pole tents and structure tents. Pole tents have large poles in the center of the tent that help hold up the tent top. Poles in the center can impede people’s line of vision and makes it difficult to plan the layouts for the tent. Structure tents, a.k.a. frame tents, on the contrary, are built using a frame that supports the tents. The structure is self-supporting and does not require internal supports. This eliminates the need for poles in the center of the tent, leaving larger open space for accommodating more people, setting the table and preparing the dance floor. Therefore, COSCO structure tents should be shortlisted when you consider using outdoor party tents.




COSCO outdoor party tents have extraordinary portability and are not particular about the ground surfaces. COSCO does not want your party to be constraint by the geological condition of your desired location. The portability and lightweight of COSCO outdoor tents enable them to be transported to anywhere you want the party to be held. Moreover, COSCO outdoor party tents can be set up on any type of ground surface - hard ground, sand, beach sand, gravel, rocky ground, sandy soil, soft ground, snow, rocky soil. Additional ropes, stakes, and poles are also available upon request to respond to complicated geological conditions.

Factors to Consider When Choosing Outdoor Party Tents

You may find innumerable outdoor party tents manufacturers on the market, and their outdoor party tents come in a wide variety of shapes, colors, materials, and styles. To choose outdoor party tents that best suit your needs, you need to sort out your priorities before making the final decision. Here are some factors that we believe you should consider to pick out outdoor party tents with excellent performance and sustainability.

1. How many people are you going to invite?

The number of people that will be attending will significantly narrow down the shortlisted outdoor party tents. When they are too big, the guests may have a sense of isolation, while when they are too small, the guests may feel claustrophobic. Outdoor party tents that best suit the number of guests will provide a cozy and intimate atmosphere. Therefore, before you decide the size of your outdoor party tents, give a rough estimation of how many people are going to be attending.

2.What are you going to do at the party

A common mistake that people tend to make when preparing outdoor party tents is that they calculate the desired based on the number of guests. To decide the size of the outdoor party tents you will need, remember to take the area for function areas into consideration, for example, if any, the dance floor, the buffet, the games, etc. Also, whether you will want your guest just sit and play on the lawn or you will prepare chairs and tables will also affect the desired size of the outdoor party tents. More importantly, if the party is supposed to have music or a display screen, you will need to reserve more space for placing audio and video equipment. 

3. What is the intended style of the party?

Do not forget to take a look at what the suppliers of outdoor party tents have to offer in terms of colors and styles. COSCO plain white ones are a staple, but even this most economical option comes in a range of shapes and styles, including high or low or curved ceilings, open or closed sides, and an assortment of cosmetic accessories like lights, flags, trims, and ties. Choose a look which suits the content of your party, whether that’s a plain style for a simple picnic over the weekend or unique pavilions for Homecoming Day. Outdoor party tents that set the right tone and give the perfect ambiance to your party will be a lasting impression in people’s memory.

4. How much do you have in your budget?

    Advanced Technology & Best Materials 

  • We understand that the outdoor party tents you choose for your party are more than shelters, but something creating coziness and preserving shared memories with friends and family. They are designed and manufactured to serve and last long. If you want to resell COSCO outdoor party tents after use, their quality will help them to secure a high second-hand value.

Step 1

Frame tents are installed by laying out the frame members, fittings, and other bracings on the ground using our diagram. Then the frame is assembled by pinning or bolting the frame members to the center hubs (crowns, spiders), and intermediate fittings (brackets, T-fittings) to form a square or rectangular-shaped frame structure. Smaller frames can be built from the perimeter into the center hub, but most larger-size frames are built from the center hub out. All of the frame members should be pinned or bolted in place, and any cables, braces, or other required hardware should be added before the vinyl top is attached to the frame and it is lifted into the air. 

Step 2
Once the frame is complete, the vinyl top can be laced together (if sectional) or placed over the frame (if one-piece). The tops typically lay over the frame and are attached by a series of 1” or 2” webs to the frame perimeter. Once the top is in place and secure, the entire frame can be lifted on to the legs either manually (small frames) or with tent lifts (canopy jacks, tent jacks). The legs should be attached, and then the frame properly secured and anchored to the supplier’s instructions
Step 3
Pole tents are generally installed by first laying the fabric pieces on the ground. Sectional tents will need to be laced together. Once the tent is laced together to make one piece, the corners are pulled out to capacity. The stakes are then positioned and driven based on the supplier’s recommended diagram. This typically requires multiple guylines at the corner positions and single guylines at the other positions. Once the guylines are attached to the tent and the stakes, the side poles are installed. This is done by starting in the corners and working around the tent to form a “bathtub” shape.
