A Custom Tent for Stamford Museum and Nature Center

Stamford Museum and Nature Center may be only one mile from the Merritt Parkway, but this former private estate turned art, history, nature, and agricultural sciences sits on 118 acres of pure bliss. The property boasts many activities sure to engage children and their guardians alike. A 10-acre working farm with a Tudor-style museum and gallery, an interactive nature center, 80 acres of outdoor trails, a  planetarium, a 4-story observatory with a research telescope, an otter pond, and a large playground designed for children to experience animals' perspective on nature can keep your family engaged for all day long. In 2019, they are excited to showcase and use their new Sugar Shack and will produce their own maple syrup. Yum!! 

In October, The Greenwich Tent Company was approached by the museum to help them out with a longterm tent rental. They needed a custom frame tent to be installed on a patio, but it also required a custom fabric. Zach Wilson and his crew rose to the task and installed a 17x50 Navitrac Lite with gable ends. It was determined that a color 502 Serge Ferrari fabric would do the trick and keep the museum's guests dry and warm in the chilly fall weather. Thanks to our friends at Anchor Tent for working with us to build and install this unique canopy. 

The next big event at the Stamford Museum and Nature Center is their maple syrup festival on March 9th and 10th of 2019. Enjoy some tasty, fluffy pancakes, an array of maple sugar infused treats and you can even take some home! If you need an escape from the craziness of fast-paced living, you are sure to find relaxing, family fun all year long at the tranquil Stamford Museum.

Back to School: Yale School of Management Event

With a median age of 35 years, the GTC staff is a fairly young (albeit highly experienced) group of professionals. But that doesn't mean that we aren't always willing to learn and try new ways to innovate in the field. Learning is truly lifelong! Which is why we jumped at the chance to work with Yale School of Management for an event in May. A 50x100 Anchor Navitrac frame tent with clear tops nestled amongst the gorgeous architecture of campus. Instead of staking all around the tent as we normally do, we had to problem solve due to some staking restrictions and settled upon using nearly 18000 pounds of ballast from Block and Roll to hold this little beauty in place. And we are happy to report it went off without a hitch.

Schools out for summer!

Don't Forget the Monster Montrachet!

Is a party even a party if you don't have two magnum bottles of Montrachet?

The answer is probably not. Such was not the case for our friends at Stella Day Events who threw a perfect wedding for a wonderful couple on June 24th at a private home in Greenwich, CT. The 40x90 clear top tent made by Anchor Tents was turned into a gorgeous summer fete by Kerri-Lynn of Stella Day Events and a top notch list of vendors. The weekend was a nerve-frazzler as the weather turned from sun to rain to sun to down pours, but with all the smiles of the beautiful people of Social Decor, Winston Flowers, Gather and Lounge, Vali Entertainment and the incredible Chef Daniel Boulud. Meg Barlow took some incredible images of the day, but we're pretty fond of these behind-the-scenes pics of the top notch vendors, some giant Montrachet and even some amateur photography action from our own Zachary Wilson.
