5 Ways to Use Your Shade Canopy

Shade Canopy

1. Party Shade.

Whether you’re hosting a backyard barbecue or a company lawn party, an instant shade solution prepares you for anything. Beaming sun or unexpected precipitation can quickly rain on your parade (literally), making guests uncomfortable and eager to leave. With a shade canopy, you can be sure guests stay comfortable throughout your entire event. Instead, utilize a shade canopy for cooler seating areas, keeping food out of the sun, or for activity spots such as face painting. For a great party shade, try the Expedition Series. The Expedition Series features hardened thru-bolt assembly for stability. This unit features nylon feet for floor protection and 4 steel ground stakes to anchor and stabilize in any backyard or outdoor space. With straight-leg, slant-leg, and 10 x 10 or 12 x 12-foot options, get durable and reliable shade for your next party. Shade Canopy

2. Trade Shows and Farmer’s Markets.

Provide shade for you and potential customers when attending trade shows or offering produce at community farmer’s markets. A pop-up canopy offers an attractive stop for shoppers under reliable and sturdy shade you can utilize instantly. For trade shows and farmer’s markets, we recommend the Marketplace Canopy.  The Marketplace offers 100 sq. feet of sturdy, practical, and easy-to-utilize shade. Take it with you anywhere with the included heavy-duty rolling bag included for easy transport and storage. Why choose the Marketplace Canopy? If you need a reliable shade that lasts steady use, season after season then this shade canopy option is exactly what you need.

3. Seasonal Businesses.

With the spring and summer seasons approaching, you and your kids may be looking for fun ways to make a little extra cash. Lemonade stands, tag sales, or car washes in front of your home can be rewarding, but certainly uncomfortable in the heat! While you wait for neighbors and potential customers to stop by, stay cool under a shade canopy. For seasonal business, pack the Weekender. Keep the whole family shaded under our 10 x 10 ft. canopy that comfortably seats up to 6 people. Use our 12 x 12 ft. canopy to shade up to 8 people. The Weekender features a 150D polyester top with Aluminex 99% UV protection and includes 4 ground stakes for easy anchoring. shade canopy
