About us

Our company

Welcome to Great Events Rentals – a exquisite source for party and event rentals, providing reliable and affordable rental services in the Calgary area since 2000.

Great Events Rentals is part of the umbrella company of Great Events Group, which also includes Great Events Catering, Cravings Market Restaurant, Annie’s Café & Bakery, Meadow Muse Pavilion event tent, Office Gourmet Catering and Bow Valley Ranche Restaurant. Operating in Calgary since 1982, the Great Events group of companies is known as Calgary’s premier one-stop shop for corporate and social events.

Rental Company vs. Décor Company – There’s a difference

Unlike décor companies that have designers on staff and offer solutions for your wedding décor based on their design experience, a rental company generally does not offer or incorporate design services. We, however, do have several experts who know the inventory well, have an eye for decorating and can get you on your way to designing a beautiful event.

We Cater to Your Needs

Whether you’re a do-it-yourself just looking for a few pretty napkins to brighten your dinner party or outfitting a large-scale event, we’re here for you. Our rental sales reps can walk you through the whole process, including a consultation where you’ll get to play in the showroom and pick your perfect look.

Check out our online catalogue to create your own quote. No order is too big or too small! We also recommend that you stop by for a visit, as some items are not picture perfect and color swatches are never accurate on your monitor.

If you need assistance setting up your décor, we have affiliated consultants ready to help you with your order. If you require catering as well, we can connect you with a catering sales representative from Great Events Catering.

How to Get it There

Big order? We offer a wide range of delivery options and, if anything ever goes awry, call us and we will do everything possible to help. An emergency contact number is part of our outgoing voice message for assistance with your order afterhours. Call 403.319.0028.

Little order? Save on delivery by picking it up from our warehouse Monday-Friday 9am-5pm. We have friendly, helpful staff to assist you in loading your vehicle with your order.

Expanding Selection

We’re constantly shopping for the latest in linen trends. Over the years, our ever-expanding selection has grown to offer our clients a rainbow of choices. We have one of the largest selections in Calgary. Sometimes, we even have “garage sales” to turn over some of our inventory.

Working with Great Events I’m always confident that what we’re looking for is available. They have a wide variety of linens and décor that help put together the look and feel we’re after for our weddings. We never worry about things not being delivered on time as this group works to ensure that what we want is at our venue on time. My favourite part is being able to bring a client into the showroom so they can “play” with the linens and see exactly what they are renting. This ensures they put together the vision they really had in their head for their wedding day. I would not hesitate for a minute to recommend Great Events for rentals or catering. They are top notch in both areas!

Great Events Rental was incredible to work with!! We went to their showroom and looked at all the different options available. We needed a large outdoor tent and chairs for an outdoor ceremony. We also needed decorations for the banquet room at the hotel for our reception. They showed us all our options and took into consideration our budget. The 30X60 tent and 140 chairs were delivered early to the house early. They set up the tent and made sure it was in just the right spot for us plus they picked up the tent on schedule as per our request. The decorations were delivered to the hotel on time as well. Everything was clean and had no wrinkles. Again, decorations were picked up from the hotel on schedule and everything went really smoothly. They are a wonderful team to work with and you won't be disappointed in their service!

Great company to deal with. Rentals were reasonable, in immaculate condition and delivered and collected promptly. Staff were polite and helpful and dealt with the many changes to my order with ease. I am planning a large birthday party next year and will be using this company again. Good service and good value for money.
