Your Guide to Choosing the Right Pop Up Gazebo

Choosing the right gazebo can be a tricky decision.
With so many options and price points you can be left confused, but fear not: this handy guide is here to help you make the right choice.

What Is a Pop Up Gazebo and Why Do You Need One?

A pop up gazebo is a collapsible shelter that folds down to a compact, portable size. Also referred to as a frame tent or mini marquee, gazebos come in all different sizes, colours and shapes, usually depending on their purpose.
These handy shelters are great in a variety of weather conditions and are usually very easy to transport, with some even fitting in the boot of a car.
So why on earth might you need one? Well, pop up gazebos can be used for a whole number of functions, including commercial trade shows, market stalls and catering events, but they’re also great for camping and garden parties.

If you’re planning any outdoor event, particularly in the UK, gazebos are a great way to ensure there is a dry, warm, bug-free place on hand.

What Do You Need to Consider When Buying?

Before purchasing, there a few things you’ll want to consider. Go through the checklist below to help you decide.

Purpose - What will you be using your gazebo for? Will it be for parties in your garden or do you need it for work, such as for an upcoming trade show? Local fetes, market stalls, exhibition stands, summer BBQs, camping and outdoor events are all other examples of why you might need a pop up gazebo.

Frequency - How often do you intend to use your pop up gazebo? Will it be for seasonal or occasional use or do you need the tent as a permanent structure? This is also a good time to consider how often you will be putting the gazebo up and taking it down. Some products are easier and quicker to put up or collapse than others, and so this could affect your final decision.

Size - How big do you need the gazebo to be? If it is going to be placed in a specific location, will it fit in the space you have? If the gazebo is going to be used for a specific purpose, such as trade shows or catering events, how many people will you need to be able to fit inside it? Don’t forget to consider the height of the roof and the length and width as well.

Budget - How much money would you like to spend on your gazebo? Do your requirements fit your budget allocation?
