Looking Back at Another Award-Winning Event Tented by EventQuip

EventQuip Award Winning Tenting Company Large Corporate Events

Hard to believe it’s been ten years since EventQuip created over 23,000 square feet of tented space for the Scantastic 2002 Event.

This space was needed to cover the multi-levels of marble steps, landings, and sprawling lawns in front of historic Memorial Hall in Philadelphia’s Fairmount Park. A 60′ x 240′ white tent with peaks reaching 25′ high was erected as the Main Tent. To keep the 1,500 guests, 120 restaurant vendors, 100 volunteers and over 20 different entertainment groups safely under cover, thirteen additional connecting tents and marquees were built. The proceeds from this culinary extravaganza benefitted SCAN (Stop Child Abuse Now). Our efforts were rewarded with a Gala Award from Special Events Magazine, one of the most coveted awards in the tent and rental industry.


Giving Back to the Community with a CARNIVAL

McCaffreys Carnival EventQuip Tents Philadelphia Community Events
We know we’ll be munching cotton candy and tossing rings this weekend!  It’s carnival time! One of Bucks County’s favorite family outings, this weekend is the SPRING CARNIVAL at Shady Brook Farm in Yardley, Pennsylvania. Proceeds from the carnival go to local community emergency funds.
Together with our good client and the main event sponsor, McCaffreys Supermarkets, EventQuip is happy to donate the catering and hospitality tents to help support the carnival’s efforts. For several years we have been honored to participate, right down to supplying tables, chairs, lighting and heaters.
We encourage you to head to Shady Brook Farm for the fun from April 19 through April 22, with the following hours of operation:
  • Thursday and Friday: 6:30pm to Close
  • Saturday: 3:00pm to Close
  • Sunday: 1:00pm – 5:00pm

The Ball on The Square Makes the Challenges of Tenting in a Public Park Worth the Trouble

Ball on the Square EventQuip Evantine Design EventQuip Tent Rental Philadelphia

The Ball on The Square is one of the most prestigious social events in Philadelphia due to its incredible mission, dedicated membership and desirable location. The 2012 Ball takes place on Thursday, June 21st in the heart of the city at Rittenhouse Square Park. A floating green oasis in an otherwise urban jungle, Rittenhouse Square Park is a precious gem to the residents and businesses that surround it. A gem worth preserving and protecting year after year despite shrinking public funding and ever increasing maintenance costs. The Friends of Rittenhouse Square, the amazing non-profit organization that puts on this incredible shindig every year, relies on the proceeds of the annual Ball on The Square to fund such mundane-yet-necessary maintenance and preservation needs as landscaping, lawn care, arborist services, sidewalk cleaning, fountain maintenance, fence and ironwork repair, security services and holiday lighting.  EventQuip is honored to provide the tenting and weather protection for this prestigious Philadelphia event.  {Photos: Steve Legato}
