We rent tents up to 10,000 square feet, staging, dance floor, lighting, linens, tables, chairs, etc., for fundraisers, graduations, weddings, corporate events, birthdays, tradeshows and open houses.

Most of our customers are based in Minnesota, but we have some from other states in the Midwest, West Coast, East Coast and Canada.

Lattin: Doug has an MBA and 28 years in the industry. Employment included Oregon Event and Tent, one of the largest event rental companies in Portland, and United Rentals, the largest rental company in the world.
I have worked on events for several Fortune 500 companies and David Beckham.
I have an MBA and 5 years in the industry, and over 20 years of banking experience and knowledge in areas including marketing, HR, and finance.
Patch: How can people find out what you have to offer?
Patch: What's the best part about your job?
Lattin: Hearing feedback from customers.
The one we received today was for a wedding in Eagan. The bride said that the tent and everything else she received was much more than she expected!
Also, having our own business allows us to spend more time together with our daughter (Alicia).
Patch: Anything else you'd like to add?
Lattin: Our newest items include: lounge furniture, ceiling drape and tea lights. Also, our new showroom will be opening soon!
