Grafton Jacaranda Festival Stretch Tent

Stretch Tent Rental Installation creates perfect ambiance at festival

We’re feeling nostalgic today as pictures of Grafton turning purple for their annual Jacaranda Festival appear on social media. Australia’s oldest floral festival is cancelled this year due to the pandemic. Last year saw Stretch Tent Rentals and Willow Tree Marquees combine forces to install an enormous stretch tent.

Why use a Stretch Tent at this Festival?

The tent hosted lots of family friendly activities during the ten day long festival. Combination strips joined three 15 x 10 sand coloured stretch tents. This created a whopping 30 x 15 = 450m2 total of usable event space under the tent.

Willow Tree’s, Mike Dwyer, supplied hand made wooden poles to gain extra height. The centre poles were 5.5m high creating a spectacular multi purpose event space.

Festoon lights strung between the poles created a lovely warm ambiance for the Caringa Ball & Garden Party. Last year was a massive success! 520 people partying in the heart of Grafton with a sit down dinner, live music and dance floor.
