In 1979, sailmaker Steve Sperry built the first-ever Sperry Tent using his fabric design skills and the materials available in his sail loft, Sperry Sails. Little did he know that this prototype would evolve into a full line of rental tents whose look and feel would create an international revolution in event tents.
For outdoor weddings, community and corporate events, and special occasions of all sizes, Sperry Tents’ elegant, handcrafted rental tents are perfect for any setting, from backyards and wineries to historic estates and beaches. Our sailcloth tents – manufactured from genuine sailcloth by New England-based sailmakers and available only from our exclusive network of providers – are in demand by the world’s foremost event planners and caterers due to their exquisite detailing, impressive silhouettes, and elegant look, inside and out.
On a beach, with panoramic ocean views. In a field, with rolling hills.
