Starshade 1700 PRO


The Starshade 1700 PRO is a large party tent perfect for your private outdoor events, an anniversary dinner, for a small wedding, a 21st birthday party .  If you’re having a party that requires a big tent, the Starshade is the perfect opportunity to get sponsors and partners involved.  No need to have anything printed directly on the tent, banner loops are built in.

Accommodating 88 sitting guests to 120 standing people, this festive tent is the perfect addition to your get together with family and friends or event with colleagues. The adjustable center pole makes a perfect pitch possible in 20 minutes with two people.

This canopy tent relies on the high tensile strength of our burly waterproof fabric suspended by a single center pole.  Starshade Connectors can be used to create covered walkways between tents to create a multiple room tent for your guests to explore.

We do not recommend using our Starshade 1700 Pro’s for commercial events.

Banner Loops


Personalizing or customizing your StarShade tent is made possible with loops at the top. Up to 6 banners can be fit on the tent with a maximum size of 2 m wide and 1 m high (78,5″ x 39″). This offers plenty of promotional space and is ideal for exhibitions and sponsored events.  We get a lot of requests to print logos directly on the tent fabric.  Although this is a request we can accommodate for larger orders, we strongly recommend using removeable banners.

Starshades are made to last, ideal for use at your family events over years.  You will want the ability to swap out banners to suit the occasion..  At for evening events Starshade photograph best lit up from the inside without any inscriptions on them at all.   

Custom banners don’t require any special adaptions to work on a Starshade.  Your local screen printer or sign specialist is more than qualified to make them exactly to your specifications.  When the show is over and it’s time to pack up the tent, take that banner off and put it somewhere it will be seen!


Six Archways


Six elegant archways make up the signature star shape of the Starshade.  Each point of the Starshade 1700 Pro 8,4m (27ft6in) away from the next point.  The top of each archway is 2,3m (7ft5in) high.  Only the stilt walkers you’ve hired for your event will need to duck their heads to get inside.  Every archway is equipped with zippers that you can use to attach optional side walls, or a connector to create an awning for your doorway or covered walkway to a second Starshade.



Side Panels and Connectors


Take customization to the next level with these optional extensions for your event tent. Side Panels can be zipped in to offer extra protection against wind and rain. Each panel is equipped with a zipper door. Connectors can be used to link StarShade tents to one another, creating whole tent cities if you’d like to. A connector could also be used as an awning or to make the entrance of the tent more visually stunning. Side Panels typically come in white or transparent and can be purchased in any color or quantity, so mix and match them as you wish to customize your party tent anyway you want.



High-End Fabric


StarShade event tents are made of waterproof and UV resistant high performance Oxford Polyester 600DX300D (340 g/m²).  The stability of the single pole design is dependent on the tensile strength of the fabric, so we spared no expense in making it bulletproof.  Organizing a wedding reception or corporate event can be stressful.  Under a Starshade, the weather is one less thing you won’t have to worry about.  The Starshade offers easy breezy shade from the sun, but if unexpected weather hits the Starshade holds up equally well to to rain and even snow. Everything  branded with the PRO label has a little something extra.  The Starshade PRO has an additional PU coating to resist mold and extend the life of your tent.



Telescopic Pole and Pegs


To hold its shape, the canopy of the Starshade tent relies on the high tensile strength of our burly waterproof fabric suspended by a single center pole.  To facilitate set up easy enough to do yourself, we’ve built in a hand crank into the telescoping center pole.  As the tent shifts in the wind and the ground underneath settles, you can easily add more tension with a few turns of the crank shaft. The handle can be removed to prevent it from snagging elbows and ruining pictures.





The Starshade 1700 PRO is delivered with 6 heavy duty tent pegs (50 cm or 20”). Pulling out these large stakes can be tough, so we’ve also included a peg puller for your convenience.
