Tents and Athletes Village

Note: We are delaying crew tent sales until we complete negotiations with our tent vendor. We will email registered Crew Managers and update the website once crew tents are available.

Crew Tent Rental Fees

Full Tent Half Tent
Lake side $600 $300
Regular $500 $250

Please note: Tents (especially lake side) are assigned on a first come, first serve basis. We try very hard to not oversell tents, but if we make a mistake, we reserve the right to correct tent allocation and fees. We understand that crew tents are in high demand, and we fit in as many crew tents into the park as is safe, but we cannot guarantee every crew gets a tent.

Tents are 20′ x 20′ squares, and have walls attached on three sides.

Crew Tent Decorations and Etiquette

Awesome crew tent decorations contribute to your crew’s success in the Fun Awards, so get creative! See the Crew Competitions page for details on the Fun Awards.

3 - FlamanOnce again, Flaman is excited to be a major sponsor of the festival! Here are a few things we ask you to remember when decorating / enjoying your team tent, so that Flaman will continue to support us.

Everything you bring, especially all decorations, garbage, recycling, and personal belongings must be removed at the end of the festival, or you will be charged a clean up fee. The tent should be left as clean or cleaner than it was when Flaman set it up.

Approved Methods for Attaching Decorations to Tents

  • Zip ties
  • String
  • Rope
  • Painters’ tape (also known as Frog tape)

Do not use any of the following:

  • Any tape / glue / adhesives (except painters’ tape), especially duct tape (also known as Duck tape), or clear packing tape – It takes forever to clean off, and no one likes doing it. Our volunteers work hard enough as is.
  • Metal wire – It accelerates wear and tear on the tents.
  • Poking holes in the walls or roof – Seriously. It has happened.
  • Any paint / ink / markers – It’s impossible to clean.

Crews are responsible for any charges resulting from damages to their tents.

Walls are mounted for your safety – Please DO NOT UNDO OR ALTER walls, straps, or any other part of the tents as it is a very serious safety hazard, especially when the Lethbridge wind picks up!
