We considered more than 20 popular canopy tents (a category that also goes by a lot of other names, including outdoor canopies, screen houses, camping shelters, camping gazebos, day tents, patio shelters, portable shelters, and portable gazebos) and spent more than two weeks with different combinations of eight of them to find the best canopy for art shows.
A solid canopy tent should protect you from the outdoor discomforts: sun, rain, and bugs. Along with that if you’re using it for a commercial purpose or for shows it should also look beautiful.
Intuitively designed with solid materials and with a pleasant look, the Eurmax 10×10 Ez Pop Up canopy tent is the best choice for your next art show. It will help to make your show more enjoyable.

Rest assured, your art supplies will be safe under this canopy.
Weight and Set up
This one is easy to carry around and weighs 59lbs, which wasn’t a lot for us. The wheeled carry bag helps us to carry it around anywhere. Setting it up was also easy and took us a minute. Setting the top of the canopy and securing it firmly is the one that makes up for a whole minute. Otherwise, setting up the whole frame takes barely 40 seconds.
It is made of polyester and provides 99% protection from UV rays. It is also water-resistant. It is rated UPF50+ and is CPAI-84 fire-retardant certificated. The sidewalls are detachable and can be rolled up individually. This one is a professional at what it does and no one would be left unsatisfied after experiencing the ease with this canopy.
This one boasts about having the best stability. And it is rightly so. It has big footpads that you can securely pin it on the ground. Add sidewalls and do not worry about them being blown away. This one is as sturdy as it promotes itself to be. We were really happy with our experience with Eurmax 10×10.
It can fit up to 10 people with ease. This should give you an idea of how many artworks you can take with you and install it. Whatever you want to stock up for your art show, make sure you keep this reference to size in mind.

ABCCanopy is definitely lighter than Eurmax and can hold the same number of people that Eurmax can. It has many parallels with the Eurmax tent in being waterproof, stable, and easy to set up. The only difference is that this is more budget-friendly than Eurmax. It also has a banner loop in case you want to advertise your presence. If you are going for something similar for a cheaper price, go for this one.
Weight and set up
This one weighs 46 pounds and is definitely lighter to carry than the Eurmax canopy. Setting up this canopy is easy. If you have one more pair of hands to help, you can set it up in under 40 seconds. Just like the name suggests, it is easy to pop up the tent. With one click, you can fix the top of the canopy and level its legs too.
It is made of silver-coated polyester of 400 Denier, which makes it 100% water-resistant. It provides UV 50+ protection from sun rays. It does a good job of doing what they preach so the material is definitely reliable.
With some tension bars or simple weights, you will be able to set up a pretty stable canopy. Also, it has up to 3 height adjustments setting. It endured a mild spell of rain, which is a great thing. It has Velcro walls that would help you hold it up to the frame.
It can fit up to 10 people. So you would want to keep your artwork according to the footfall you’d receive.
Features we liked
We don’t even know where to start the string of praises for this tent. First off, it is budget-friendly. Second, you can choose from a wide variety of colors. And third, it is easy to set up! It has Velcro straps on the insides to keep the wall attached to the frame during windy days. Additionally, it has center stable protection so there is nothing that could shake it that easy. Also, banner loops will help you set up a banner for your display collection! Keep them coming in with this one!

Delta Canopies has a carnival feel to its design with decorative windows on the wall and striking designs. From solid colors to stripes, you can coordinate it with your art show’s theme. This stands at par with the other two tents when it comes to being waterproof, stable, and easy setup. It is just a little heavier on weight than the other two tents.
Weight and set up
This weighs 70lbs and was the heaviest of the lot. However, it was still easy to carry with the trolly carry bag. It has a snap-lock secure system, which is not really bad when it comes to installation. It feels almost the same as the other one and didn’t give us much hassle in installing it. It barely took us a minute to install frames along with the canopy top.
It is made from heavy-duty polyester with PVC coating, which makes it waterproof. Though we are not sure if it protects us from UV rays, it does give us the shade we need.
You would really need to add weights to give this tent proper stability. Else, it is prone to be blown away by strong winds. It does a decent job of being waterproof and doesn’t let water seep in.
Like the other tents, this one is as spacious as them.
Features we liked
The design of the canopy will attract those who would like to stand out from the crowd. However, it is possible that other people can be using the same canopy but with at least 29 color options, you may find it hard to match with them all. It also has decorative window panels on the detachable wall, which makes it look homely. To be honest, it has a little fun-fair feeling to the whole design and you may either love it or hate it. Rest, this one is pretty compatible with the rest at a much lower price.
