Our wedding took place this last Sunday. My wife chose the venue but I was adamant that we should get a tent. The process was much more difficult than I thought it would be and I was starting to feel overwhelmed.
We found out our venue had booked a wedding the day before (also requiring a tent, albeit smaller) so getting a tent set up for us on the day of was going to be difficult... I called numerous tent rental companies that told me the job would be too difficult without at least a few days to get everything set up (considering the size of the tent and what we'd need). One person even told me that they'd typically need 3 days to a week to set up a tent with the size and decorations we needed and was basically unhelpful.
Eventually I contacted Nolans/Mccarthys and they were able to accomodate our requests.
I worked with Ela and she went above and beyond in making the rental process as easy as possible. She gave great suggestions in regards to decor and assured me that they would get everything finished in time... Including decorating and setting up a custom stage which is typically used in a traditional South Asian wedding. We eventually settled on a 100 foot sail cloth tent with two types of lighting, gold chavari chairs, a dance floor, dessert dishes, and chafing dishes.
When we arrived at the venue at 10:30 AM on the day of the wedding we found the tent already set up, chandaliers hung, bistro lighting set up, dance floor set up, and our stage was finished and beautifully decorated.
Ask for Ela if you go through Nolans/ Mccarthys; she is warm and kind and made the process so much easier for us.
I will definitely go through them again if I ever need a tent!read more

We recently worked with McCarthy's for the Noyes Health Charity Gala. They were great to work with, starting from the planning process straight through to clean up. Because of the nature and size of our event, our order was constantly changing, but they were able to accommodate us right up to the last minute. We were very pleased with the quality and set up of everything they provided and would definitely recommend them to anyone looking for a party rental vendor.read more

The team at McCarthy is second to none. The service, attention to detail, and support along the way with all the inevitable changes really made planning our wedding so much easier. Jamie was my right-hand lady as we worked through all the decisions and backup plans to ensure a great event. Their inventory is also extensive so you can customize and make your event truly special and unique. A fabulous experience!read more

We've had the pleasure of working with McCarthy Tents & Events twice in recent months. McCarthy's team is professional, efficient, reliable and courteous.

We rented multiple tables and linens for a wedding. They worked with us through multiple iterations leading up to the event as we were planning. They were very quick to respond and had no issue adjusting the quote. We picked up what we needed to transport ourselves and had no issues. They have much more inventory than we took advantage of but will be on the list for any events that come our way and need furniture/linens.read more

I love the team at McCarthy Tents & Events and recommend them to all my clients. Their focus on customer service is one of my favorite aspects about this company. As the owner of the wedding planning company Verve Event Co., it's important that I work with professionals that have the same dedication to customer service and integrity that I demand of our team. The team at McCarthy goes above and beyond. They answer emails within 24 hours, someone always answers the phone, and they do whatever they can to make sure your event goes off without a hitch. Their inventory is constantly being refreshed as the team travels to learn about new offerings in the rental business. The event rental business has many challenges (inventory, logistics, weather, the list goes on) and it takes a dedicated team to accomplish what they do and maintain the reputation they do. I 100% recommend McCarthy Tents & Events and will always work with them on my events. See photos of our lovely events together!read more

McCarthy Tents and their staff are the best of the best! Working with them was PERFECTION from start to finish!
During this crazy past Covid year, my husband and I changed our wedding plans from a destination wedding to a wedding in our very own backyard this pat June 2021. We had never planned an event before let alone a wedding and truly had no roadmap for such a thing! Working with McCarthy MADE OUR WEDDING DREAMS COME TRUE!
The staff at McCarthy is wonderful, knowledgeable, attentive and helpful! Over the six months of planning, I had endless questions and they answered every single one promptly and thoroughly.
They have a vast selection of what feels like EVERYTHING you need to bring your wedding vision to life! They provided our tenting, stage for our band, tables, chairs, lighting, generator, dance floor, linens, bar, cocktail tables AND MORE! If there was something we needed, McCarthy had it and they were just a true joy to work with.
I will forever recommend McCarthy Tents to anyone in need and if we find ourselves throwing an event large or small in the future they will be the only company we call!
Thank you McCarthy Tents, you made our wedding planning overwhelm melt away and there is no way in the world we could have done it without you! We are FOREVER grateful and appreciate you and your team! Pam and Alanread more

Cannot say enough about McCarthy Tents!! We had our wedding set for this past weekend and then the weather changed.

Will use again if needed for sure!!read more

Jeff and the McCarthy team come through for me every.single.time. I'm a wedding planner based in Chicago, but I am from Rochester and had my wedding in Ithaca, NY 4 years ago. I met them through a friend at the time, and they were absolutely spectacular in the planning process -- meeting me at my (very) detailed level to help plan a large tent wedding in Ithaca. Jeff provided helpful guidance about tent size, layout and set-up as well as quantities for all items from chairs and tables to napkins and coffee cups.
Fast forward and they are the only rental company I recommend to clients getting married in Upstate NY. They're transparent about pricing, are incredibly professional, respond quickly, and have saved me on more than one occasion.
I highly, highly recommend McCarthy for any/all of your rental needs.read more

We booked McCarthy's to set up for both, our Wedding & Reception. They were willing to set up our tents 3-4 days in advance, which allowed our wedding planners more time to design the spaces. Furthermore, they ran out of pile wood, which was our choice of flooring for our Wedding; however, they upgraded the flooring to Grey Pickle wood, which is significantly more expensive, without extra charge. They have a VAST collection to pick from to create your very own venue and we greatly appreciated their hard work & generosity. Highly Recommend!read more

We are so happy with the service and quality of the rental. We rented a tent for our parent's 50th anniversary and from contracting to final payment, everything was so smooth and well taken care of. They are responsive to requests and needs and also do a great job of set up and take down. You really won't be disappointed. I want to run another event just to use their services again!read more

I am a mom who had to transition our daughters wedding to our home. I had McCarthy tents already reserved, but with change in plans they were most accommodating. Jeff was always there to answer my calls and questions. From the person answering the phone to the delivery people everyone is professional and top notch.
Customer service is their top priority. They calmed all my fears. The week before they looked at the weather forecast with me and made adjustments to our plans and order.
Brandon who helped with tent set up was always willing to help and do anything to help set up the tent to my requests.
Can not recommend them enough.
Thank You McCarthy Tent I would use your services in the future.

The wedding was spectacular! All went well, starting with the weather. McCarthy's wonderful crew set up the tents in the POURING RAIN 2 days in advance. It kept the ground underneath somewhat drier, and thus was completely dry by Saturday.
The service was awesome - the staff always provided prompt answers to my many questions over 6 months, and had great flexibility near the end with my additions and subtractions. I was quite impressed with how spacious the 40'x100' tent was with 200+ people inside it! I highly recommend McCarthy's for any event!read more

We had a fantastic experience working with McCarthy Tents & Events. They came highly recommended by the caterer we chose for our barn wedding and did not disappoint. Their delivery, set-up and pick-up were all prompt and seamless. Communication was continuous and easy throughout the process. At one point, we almost had to choose a different champagne flute for our table setting due to the high demand of wedding season, however, McCarthy went the extra mile and ordered additional flutes specifically for us to rent for the wedding. Thanks for helping make our wedding so special!!read more

I have worked with McCarthy on countless weddings and events. As an event planner, they are my go to rental company! We have done small linen orders to full wedding tents with all the fixings. They always deliver great products! When getting linens from McCarthy, they are always clean - which is not the case with every rental company. When using them for a tent, I always trust their team to do a great job with professionalism. And the in office staff is truly wonderful, always answering the many many questions I have on behalf of my clients. Thank you for all that you do Team McCarthy!read more

The tent we got from McCarthy's was a big beautiful double poled white tent that immediately brought a festive look to the yard. A crew came, led (I think) by Adam Bentivegna; they were responsible and responsive and a pleasure to work with. LIghts on the tent added a welcome touch. I also got the 12' x 12' dance floor which for my party was a little small (around 80 people) but aside from that, everything went smoothly with getting the tent up and down and I would gladly return as a customer again.read more

The day has not quite arrived yet. So far the service has been very pleasant and efficient. But they can not pinpoint a 4 hour window when they may arrive to set up. To just say they will call you 30 minutes prior is not helpful. When you are planning a large party, that's not exactly a timetable that works. I would think by the day before, you could pinpoint either morning or afternoon for a delivery schedule.read more

I connected with Mike (based out of Buffalo) at McCarthy's for ALL my rental needs for our backyard wedding (tent, tables and chairs, lights, ovens, grills, plates, silverware, linens, EVERYTHING) and had a truly fantastic experience. With all the moving pieces that go into a wedding the rentals was a piece I never worried about. Every time I called (planning this from Boston) all my questions were answered by Mike or someone on the team. Costs were always clear and the set up and take down were seamless. I would recommend them fully and without hesitation, they are simply the BEST!!!!read more

We doubled up on the lights and the outcome was magical. I still day dream about the tent and how gorgeous it was.
