Event Safety: Rentals for Hosting Safe Graduation Ceremonies in Georgia

Graduation ceremonies may look a little different, but it’s important that you celebrate this momentous achievement! Classic Tents & Events is proud to offer custom tenting solutions for college and school graduations in Atlanta. Our team is here to help local schools of every size host safe graduation ceremonies.

Large Tents

One of the best ways to keep your guests safe is by hosting a ceremony outdoors. Beneath one of our large classic tents, everyone will remain comfortable, while adhering to safety recommendations. No matter the weather, rain or shine, you can trust that your event will go off without a hitch. If necessary, consider adding on tent accessories, such as siding.


To assist with social distancing, chairs for both students and guests can be placed a safe distance apart. We offer a variety of folding chairs that are easy to transport and set up. Including our resin padded folding chairs and alloy folding chairs. For youth graduation ceremonies, we also offer children’s furniture – in both red and blue.



In addition to leveling up the look of your event, flooring will help keep your guests safe. Depending on the location of your event, it can be used to protect a lawn and prevent injury. By leveling the ground and providing traction, you can effectively reduce the risk of injury. We highly recommend flooring, such as Dura-Trac, for walkways or beneath a tent if there is a chance of rain. We also offer heavy-duty flooring for vehicles, to prevent damage to parking areas.

For large-scale graduation ceremonies, staging is a must-have. In addition to giving students their time to shine, it will ensure that everyone in attendance can see. It can also be used as a means to hide and protect some equipment. Our staging package includes all necessary safety features, including guard rails. Podiums, such as our clear acrylic podium can be rented separately. We also offer a ramp to cater to guests or students with accessibility needs.

Crowd Control

Depending on the size of your event, it is recommended that you consider crowd control. Safe graduation ceremonies start from the get-go, at which point a queue can come in handy. Not only to assist with the task of screening guests prior to their entrance but to help guests remain a safe distance apart. At Classic, we offer fencing, stanchion & rope, as well as signage, to assist with your crowd control efforts.

Pipe & Drape

Pipe and drape are especially useful for creating a picture-perfect background. Including a stage, as well as a designated area for photographs. However, they can also be used to hide and protect tech, including sound and audio equipment. In addition to helping you create a sizeable tent, Classic is also proud to assist you in creating a separate and hidden area for your behind-the-scenes team.


Not every school has its own audio equipment – at which point Classic is happy to fill in! We keep an assortment of audio equipment in-stock, including speakers, microphone cables, microphone stands, and more. Let us help you create safe audio setup so that all of your guests can easily hear the speakers and enjoy the event.

Sanitizing Station

Last but far from least, are sanitizing stations. Placed at high-traffic or high-touch areas, sanitizing stations will encourage both students and guests to remain diligent when it comes to their hygiene and safety – as well as that of others. We recommend placing sanitizing stations at all of the following locations:

  • Restrooms
  • Entrances/exits
  • Areas with drinks/food
