How Many People Fit Under A 40 x 40 Tent?

If you’re trying to figure out how many people fit under a 40 x 40 tent then this article will help you understand the “true” size of this tent. As we value your time, the simple answer is this: A 40 x 40 tent can hold between 100 – 192 people. If you seat guests at round tables it holds up to 128 people and if you seat guests at rectangle tables, it holds up to 192 guests. 

However, if you plan on adding other things under your tent such as a dance floor, food tables, gift tables, etc. Then you’ll likely need a bigger tent depending on what you’re planning to do under the tent.

Just Need Seating?

Like we stated above, if you’re JUST using the tent to seat guests then it makes things VERY simple. If you seat guests at 8ft rectangle tables then you can fit up to 192 guests under a 40 x 40 tent. If you seat guests at 60in round tables then you can fit up to 128 guests. Check out the images below to see how it looks.
