For more than 80 years, people have trusted Chattanooga Tent because of our extensive knowledge and expertise. Clients experience peace of mind because our reputation is well-established in our masterful delivery of corporate events, parties, weddings, fairs, festivals, sporting events, in addition to military and disaster relief efforts.
Last month, we added to that solid record by providing tents and flooring for major events to benefit great causes.
Chattanooga Tent participated for a second year in the April 14th Believe Bash to benefit the Erlanger Children’s Foundation. Proceeds go to the Believe Campaign to build the new Children’s Hospital at Erlanger. The 1920s-themed event sold out with more than 1,200 guests enjoying the evening of dining, dancing, and roaring 20s fun.
The Believe Bash presented special challenges as it was held in the Wilson Air Hangar at the Chattanooga Airport. Chattanooga Tent provided a 40-meter by 25-meter by 4-meter (131 X 82 X 13 in feet) tent and flooring designed to extend the space of the hangar.
“With the event site being at the airport, the timelines were critical and short, allowing us minimal time to install and dismantle. Also, no stakes could be used, so we had to bring in 180,000 lbs of concrete ballast,” explained Chattanooga Tent President Mike Holland.

18th Annual Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) Promise Gala
Also last month, Chattanooga Tent provided tent and flooring for the 18th Annual Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation (JDRF) Promise Gala held April 21st at Nissan Stadium in Nashville. The black-tie event, hosted by the JDRF Middle Tennessee Chapter, included a cocktail reception, seated dinner, and an auction for Find A Cure to accelerate research on Type 1 diabetes. In 2017, the event attracted 800 guests who contributed to raising more than $1.6 million.
Aside from protecting the field where the Tennessee Titans play, everything had to be driven down in to an underground loading dock and then forklifted to the field.
“It was quite a number of trips with the tent and flooring, plus 240,000 lbs of concrete. The tent was a 30-meter by 60-meter by 4-meter (98 x 196 x 13 feet) clear structure. We used approximately 24,000 square feet of specialized flooring to drive all the equipment to the field,” said Mike Holland.
Careful logistics impact all events of this nature. Chattanooga Tent brought professional planning to both projects and executed for these fundraising events with special event tent rentals, helping them to achieve success in their efforts to ease suffering for those fighting diabetes and other illnesses.
