A 20×20 Canopy is quite large and in fact, it is not exactly the easiest size to find. You can get a number of 20 x 10 canopies for a good price, as there are quite a good number of them. However, if you need a 20 x 20 sun canopy for either a wedding, birthday party, or other outdoor event, with a bit of looking and shopping around you can get one at a good price that is the right color and style for whatever the occasion is.
If you are not particular about the canopy being exactly 20 x 20, then you could opt for the Outdoor Patio Shelter Logic Super Max 8-Leg Canopy 18×20′ presently for sale at Target’s online retail site. This canopy is just a little bit smaller but the difference in price is quite large – it costs only $450 as opposed to the 20 x 20 canopy made by the same brand name that costs $800. The latter is more decorative in style but it is a bit pricey.
However, you can find a 20 x 20 canopy for a bit cheaper. In fact, www.northerntool.com sells the exact same 20 x 20 canopy that Target does for only $700. The most affordable option is probably the King Canopy 20′ x 20′ Event Tent for sale at Wal-Mart’s retail site for a nifty $520. It is about the cheapest price you can find and the shipping on it is free of charge.
One important point to take note of is that all the above mentioned canopies are ‘open’ canopies. They do not have come with walls; some canopies are made so that canopy walls can be easily attached; the walls are then sold separately and can be put on or taken off at will. However, canopy walls are not cheap and not all canopy tents are made with attachable walls.
An alternative to buying a 20×20 canopy is to rent one. There are businesses that specialize in renting canopies, gazebos and pop up gazebos for large occasions. If you only need the canopy for one or two special events, then it will most likely work out cheaper to rent it than it would to buy it, although that of course depends on where you live, where you rent the canopy from and how many hours you rent it for. Make sure to rent well in advance; you risk the item you need being unavailable if you wait until the last minute.
