MasterTent beats grizzly bear into submission.

08/22/2017 / by Joey DiFranco / Tents, Quality

So no, we didn’t actually subject a real bear to the risky endeavor of fighting a MasterTent but we did write that headline to prove a point. If you’re looking for a tough tent, they don’t come any tougher than the MasterTent.

TentCraft Launches Partnership With Taste the Local Difference

04/06/2017 / by Shelby Oredson / Culture, Inspiration, TentCraft Outdoor

When I first started working at TentCraft over a year ago, I didn't think my new employer could get any cooler. We played Ping-Pong on our breaks, sculpted with Playdoh during creative brainstorms, and cracked cold ones on Friday afternoons. Some time later, we started TentCraft Outdoor, an internal program that gives employees the chance to rent paddleboards, kayaks, and snowshoes free of charge their northern Michigan excursions, because health, wellness, and the great outdoors are three of our favorite things. It seemed as though I had...

Custom Tents - More Than a Commodity

01/30/2017 / by Tentcraft / Event Marketing, General, Tents

As a member of TentCraft's Inside Sales team, I'm often reminded that our event tents and structures aren't the most budget-friendly on the market. Accordingly, my conversations often center on why making a greater initial investment with TentCraft can ensure deadlines are met and help avoid additional costs down the road for things like replacement parts, canopies, and entire tents. This often leads to a brief discussion surrounding brands and commodities. ...

Winter is Coming: Warm Up With TentCraft

11/04/2016 / by Shelby Oredson / Tents

I know how it feels to stand at the gas station, quivering in your snow boots while you fill your tank. And I know where to go when snow falls so copiously it covers the tops of stop signs. Hint: bed. You go to bed. Nobody...

10/14/2016 / by Megan Ruediger / Tents

Tailgating is to football what beer is to burgers — you can't have one without the other. And with nearly 50 million tailgaters spread around the country, we've come a long way in our pregame fandom. What started as a Civil War tradition (it's true. Look it up),...
