6 Best Gazebos For Festivals In 2020

Updated: Jun 7

Check out the best gazebos for this year's festivals based on these important factors!

Festival season is upon us and we have all the great food trucks and music bands to look forward to. Its also going to involve being in a field away from the rest of society for a little while


This means we are going to have to stock up and bring the right equipment with us to make sure we get through the next few days.


One of the most important pieces of equipment anyone can bring to a festival is a gazebo. It keeps you dry if it rains, protects you from the sun and can also offer a little haven away from the crowds without having to stay in your tent.


I have therefore put together a list of the 6 best gazebos for festivals based on factors, such as the gazebo being waterproof and rustproof, and the level of UV protection they provide.

Buyers guide:


When buying a gazebo for an outdoor event such as a festival there are a few things you may want to consider before making that purchase.


Being waterproof, rustproof and having UV protection is pretty important as the weather in some countries (especially in the UK) can be pretty unpredictable.


Is it waterproof


You have been planning and look forward to the upcoming festival for a while and are all packed and ready to party. You get there with all your supplies and will there for 2-4 days. And then it starts to rain.....noooo!!


This is why it can important to choose a gazebo for the festival that is waterproof. It will obviously keep you and your goods dry and help you to enjoy the music and your time at the event without getting soaked in the process.


Depending on where you are in the world and if you are lucky to get consistent sunny weather this may not be an issue for you.


Does it have UV protection?


We all know too much sun is now good for us, hence why it is recommended we use sunscreen and not spend too much time in the sun.


This is especially true with outdoor events in the summer where you will be spending a lot of time in the sun.


This is why it is a good idea to get a gazebo that has some UV protection which will help you to minimize any adverse effects. And it will also help to keep the area cool.


Is it rust-resistant


So you've had your gazebo for a while and used it for a number of events and you know its waterproof. You use it the next year for another festival, find a space to watch some music and try to pop up the gazebo but the legs won't slide up!


This is most likely because it has seized up by the build-up of rust when out in the rain and is quite a common problem for gazebos that are not rust-resistant.


Additional products


There are a few things that need to be brought separately that don't come with gazebos. For example, weights to secure the legs of gazebos in wind weather and in some cases side panels (not all gazebos come with side panels).
