Whether you’re planning an outdoor family, business, community event, unpredictable weather can make planning tricky. A portable canopy can provide quick shade or instant protection from the rain. A portable canopy is a portable shelter that collapses for easy storage and transportation. Generally, a portable canopy comes in two pieces: a sturdy powder-coated steel canopy frame and a durable fabric canopy top. Portable canopies are often called pop-up canopies because the canopy part of the frame pops-up when it is opened. The legs of a portable canopy are height-adjustable to provide quick shade and weather protection and variable headroom. Pop-up canopies generally come with a convenient carry case, which makes them easy to store on a shelf, in a closet, or in a garage or shed. Since they are portable, pop-up canopies are also convenient to keep in the back of your car, truck, or SUV. Like having an umbrella handy on a rainy day, you never know when a portable canopy will come in handy! There are many ways you can use a portable canopy for work and play. Let’s look at a variety of cool and creative home, community, and business pop-up canopy uses:
