Our History

Beginning in 1984, Paul Fortier embarked on his long career in the rental industry. For many years, he supervised and executed tent rentals in the New Orleans metropolitan area for his family’s Northshore-based tent rental business. He also organized and provided additional rentals, such as tables, chairs, and linens for numerous events. Over these years, many clients began to refer to Paul as “The Tent Man”.

In 1995, Paul decided to venture into business for himself. His nickname carried forward, and we have been doing business as THE TENT MAN since 1996. We have grown steadily since our inception, expanding our inventory one tent at a time. We now offer a sizeable inventory of marquee-style and high-peaked tents.

We pride ourselves on Customer service.
