In 1979, sailmaker Steve Sperry built the first-ever Sperry Tent using his fabric design skills and the materials available in his sail loft, Sperry Sails. Little did he know that this prototype would evolve into a full line of rental tents whose look and feel would create an international revolution in event tents.

Steve’s son, Tim, took over ownership of Sperry Tents and incorporated it separately from Sperry Sails in 1996. Today, Sperry Tents is still a family-owned enterprise, with Sperry Fabric Architecture, helmed by Steve’s other son, Matt, producing the tents and Tim overseeing the provider network both across the country and abroad. And while the company has welcomed new manufacturing technologies and canopy shapes, it continually prioritizes classic, timeless fabric designs.

Sperry Tents Eastern Corridor, founded by President Christian Beaulne in 2016 upon his return to his native province after more than 10 years of service as Head of Tent Operations for various Cirque Du Soleil Productions around the world, is Canada’s first Sperry Tents office. Headquartered in greater Montreal, it serves Quebec City, Montreal, and Ottawa, from the Charlevoix region to Prince Edward County.
