Established in 1984, Big Top Tent Rentals first opened its doors in Edmonton, Alberta as a family owned and operated business. With hard work, a keen eye for quality and determination to succeed, the company expanded quickly and became Edmonton's largest supplier of party and festival tents.
In the fall of 2016, the company was acquired by River City Events as their new tent division and moved into a larger warehouse in downtown Edmonton. The acquisition was an important step to move forward in addressing the company’s growth. As a result of the business combination, we expanded our rental inventory and now have the resources to provide our clients the latest solutions in tent rentals for events of all sizes.
As we embark on this new journey together, we look forward to building on the relationships that enhance our wonderful community while preserving the Big Top Tent Rentals’ legacy and continuing our traditions of excellence.
We have a large variety of tent types at River City Events. Our tents can be staked, anchored or weighted. We can also provide lighting, flooring, décor, and wide range of rentals for your tent. Check out our online catalogue for all event rental options.
Frame tents are popular because they are convenient, durable and affordable.
With a classic look and a large variety of sizes for rent, these tents are a great option for backyard parties, corporate events and gatherings.
Specifically designed to be highly durable and weather-resistant, these tents are great for larger outdoor events, corporate functions, weddings, and festivals. For guests of 100 to 1000, they are perfect for your wedding or special event.
These tent structures are our newest addition. These tents have no interior poles and no exterior ropes, which creates an open environment that can accommodate a variety of events.
All purpose canopies are a great solution for outdoor sporting events, private gatherings and trade shows. They are easy to setup, take down and transport – these you can do yourself!

The tent looked great and we appreciate all the blood, sweat and lack of sleep that went into setting it up. You and your staff are certainly pros and CISN-FM looks forward to doing future business with Big Top, and will gladly pass your company name along.
