More about us

These aesthetically striking event tents, supported by natural eucalyptus poles, are imported directly from South Africa. Shady Spaces is the first company, in fact, to bring stretch tents to Canada’s West Coast. Our event tents offer superior quality in every regard and are stunning, highly versatile alternatives to traditional marquee tent rentals.

Stretch Tent Rentals 

Keep your guests dry, shaded and stylish

Our unique, Bedouin-inspired stretch tents are original, versatile and strong enough to withstand the natural elements of the West Coast.

Our stretch tents:

  • Are 100% waterproof

  • Offer 90% shade coverage

  • Are built to withstand the harshest of winds

  • Are supported by natural eucalyptus poles

  • Are constructed from tough, fire-resistant fabric

  • Include configuration, set-up and take-down


Perhaps best of all, these sleek, free-form stretch tents allow wide variation in terms of set-up, with endless configurations for functionality and an individualized look. Our crew will work with you to design a set-up that best fits the mood of your gathering and the kind of weather you may encounter.


The use of natural Eucalyptus poles (instead of metal) adds a natural, earthy element to your tent, and larger tents include a weatherproof gutter system should the heavens decide to open.
