Create Your Perfect Canopy

Tipis,  Marquees, and Yurts come in all shapes and sizes so getting a good idea of how many people will be on your guest list is crucial when picking your canvas. Tipis interconnect and each have their own capacities, so have a think about what other event spaces you’d like to include. It’s time to get creative. Maybe you need an extra area for dancing, space for a band, cake display, or a laid walkway.  All are possible when you can build your own venue.

Also the land should be relativity flat.
