What are Sperry Tents?
A Sperry Tent is more than just your average tent. There are plenty of event tents that serve their function, but Sperry Tents aim to do more than that. These elegant tents are designed not just with shelter in mind, but to elevate the aesthetic of your event. Handcrafted from sailcloth – not vinyl – Sperry Tents breathe during the day and glow invitingly at night. Create a dreamy, sophisticated look for your big event. Sperry Tents are made to enhance the aesthetic of your event, not detract from it.
The Sperry Tent history
Steve Sperry started his sailmaking career back in the 60’s, eventually starting his own company, Sperry Sails, for sailmaking in the 70’s. Inspired by an event he was invited to, Sperry used his sailmaking skills to try his hand at making a party tent. Using his own supplies – sailcloth, sewing machines, grommets, nautical lines, and wooden support poles crafted at his personal sawmill – Sperry crafted a party tent that would start a revolution in the world of event tents.
Today, Sperry’s sons, Tim and Matt Sperry, keep the family business alive. Tim Sperry acts as president of Sperry Tents and helms the original office, Sperry Tents Marion, while advancing the brand’s reach by signing on privately owned and licensed Sperry Tents providers both nationally and internationally. Meanwhile Matt took over from his dad as Sperry Sails president and launched sister company Sperry Fabric Architecture, which manufactures each and every Sperry Tent as well as custom fabric structures for commercial venues and private homes.
