Here in Fargo we’re renting one for around $400.  There’s a $150 deposit, and it’s $60 per man per hour for setup/takedown.  Spendy for us – but if it saves us from being downpoured on, it’s worth it.  🙂

I think it was about the same for us, we ended up cancelling it within the window because the weather was supposed to be good.  Our tent was actually pretty small so that might explain some of the cost difference too.

Our tent that is for 175 guests is about $1200, I believe…That’s in Upstate NY, for geographic comparisions 🙂 Suckers are pretty but pricey!

Our venue quoted us $1200-1500 for ~ 150 ppl and since we have the barn already we opted not to use it.  THEN my Future Mother-In-Law talked to the guy out venue would actually be getting the tent from and HE quoted her bout $500.  WTF??  Our little farmers are trying to rip us off!!

For a tent with sides, 100 person capacity, 100 white chairs, 12 high top tables, and set up,  we are paying $950 in central NY.   Our venue arranged for this negociating the cost and set up fees.

Ours is something like $1400 for a 40×80. That was the cheapest we could find–I’m jealous of these prices I’m seeing here!

Geez – our quote was $2400 for a 40 x 100  


That’s what happens when you live near NYC


Has anyone rented a Serry tent? How much are they?
