Back to School Time with KD Kanopy

pop-up tentsAugust is here and sadly,  that means summer is coming to a close. It also means back to school time for the kids!  You had a whole summer of fireworks, s’mores, and making lasting memories under your KD Kanopy tent with them, so it’s hard to believe that they won’t be lounging about the house aimlessly any longer. But wait: that doesn’t mean you guys have to pack away the tent for the rest of the year.

Before you start accusing your favorite tent of being a fair weather friend, we at KD Kanopy have come up with a few ideas for utilizing your tent during the school year. Who says you can only have fun during the summer?

Track meets, soccer games and football practices. Just because the kids are heading back to school doesn’t mean the temperatures are letting up any. Keep your kids cool under the shade of a Majestic or PartyShade for their next track meet, practice or tournament. Did we mention custom graphics to show some team spirit?

Work Functions. Finding and reserving a pavilion for your “team bonding exercises” can be a pain. Save yourself the hassle (and your sanity) by grabbing a coworker to set up the StarShade for your next not-at-work-but-still-working forced outing. If you have a larger group for the egg toss and sack race, the StarTwin can shade 685 square feet of co-workers.

Outdoor Concert. Aspiring artist? Troubadour? Beatles cover band? You’re going to need a cool setting for your next gig. Forget the dive bars and concert halls – we’ve got something better. The StarStage is good for acoustics and aesthetics no matter how unknown your band is.

Whether it’s some extracurriculars, work outings or a launching pad for the next Justin Bieber, KD Kanopy has you covered. Literally. Drop us a line and see what a KD Kanopy tent can do for you.

Customer Service at KD Kanopy

What does it mean to be a KD Kanopy customer? Exceptional customer service, quality products and all at an affordable price! We take our customer service seriously and it shows. Without good client/vendor relationships, we would not be thriving the way we are.

That’s why when a review comes in like this one from McCall Party Rentals, we know we are accomplishing our goals and standing by our promises.

“Thank you for creating such a wonderful product. I absolutely love KD canopy. I explain the quality and performance to other vendors all the time. If I was ever going to sell a product to others, I would sell KD canopy products, because the KD Canopy products I stand behind. I never pass up a chance to  demonstrate about quality of KD Canopy, because I take pride in the fact that we carry KD Canopy scissor action tents exclusively in our rental inventory. We have carried other brands in the past, however, once we bought our first KD Canopy, we never went back to the inferior products that other companies produce. My sincere opinion is if you want the best, you acquire a KD Canopy.”

Fiddler’s Green Amphitheater & KD Kanopy

We are in the peak of summer and what is better than a concert at Fiddler’s Green! Last summer we helped the amphitheater complete a multimillion dollar renovation. So get out there and enjoy it!

Fiddler’s Green Amphitheater

Fiddlers Green Amphitheatre has been a Denver staple for concert goers of all kinds. The likes of John Denver and Bob Dylan have played there. And now, it is about to get even better. Fiddlers is undergoing a $6 million renovation and  we are excited to be a part of it!  With a seating capacity of 17,000 people, this is one of Colorado’s best venues for outdoor events.

The  $6 million renovation will update everything from the sound system to the concession stands.  You can find our canopies featured in the VIP areas.

The newly remodeled amphitheater will be environmentally friendly, easier to get in and out of and feature new LED screens. Concession stands have also been built to accommodate the large crowds that Fiddler’s Green draws. Overall, the whole concert going experience will improve drastically.

Next time you are there for a show, keep an eye out for our signature canopies!

The KD Trio Canopy: Is it right for you? + 30% off in July

We hope everyone’s 4th of July weekend was filled with fun and fireworks! We have some exciting things happening in the month of July. Right now through the end of the month, you can get 30% off all 10×15 and 10×20 canopies! This includes a full digital print and the frame.

It can be time consuming to find the canopy that fits your needs. But here at KD Kanopy, we try to make that a little easier. Do you have an event that requires a larger covered area or one that will last an extended period of time with resistance to wind and snow? Then choose the KD Trio or KD Classic canopies. The durable, long-lasting Trio can cover spaces from 10′ x 10′ all the way up to 20′ x 30′, with even larger options available with the KD Classic.

These units can be set up for months or even years. High strength and durability are the key. Here are some of the features of the KD Trio:

  • Molded steel fittings

  • Easy-snap buttons

  • Marine-grade aluminum

Stainless-steel buckles set the KD Trio apart from competitors. The weatherproof 18-oz black-out vinyl cover is UV treated, water resistant and fire retardant. We use stainless steel buckles to attach the cover to the frame, which reduces staining or marking from rust and further extends the life of your tent.

The KD Trio offers three styles of tops: the Traditional, the Tension and the High Peak. The Tension and High Peak styles use tension straps on the corners that pull down and hook into the bottom of the legs. The High Peak canopy uses a single mast that pushes the top twice as high, giving the canopy a unique, elegant look. All High Peak canopies come with a pennant flag in the same color as the top. These canopies are available in 10’, 15’ or 20’ widths and can reach 40’ in length.

KD Kanopy Cares Charity Golf Tournament 2015

Courtesy: Kids Mobility Network

July 13th is just around the corner! You still have time to sign up for the golf tournament benefiting Kids Mobility Network. We are beyond excited and ready for this years tournament. Last year was such a success and we know we can top it this year. KD Kanopy sat down with Kids Mobility Network for an interview  last year and in the spirit of this years tournament, thought we would share the interview again.  See all of you out on the green July 13, 2015! For more information go to or contact Matt at

Raising a child with disabilities is a challenge, but often the hardest thing for parents is to come up with the money for expensive medical equipment. This motivated parents Christy and Pete Kopp to launch Kids Mobility Network in 2005, a local organization that recycles durable medical equipment. Today they have helped over 1,000 families and counting, enabling greater safety, mobility and independence for their children with disabilities.

Q:  How did the idea for KMN come to be?

Christy and Pete Kopp wanted to donate their daughter’s walker and found that there was no organization recycling children’s durable medical equipment. After some research, Kids Mobility was launched to help children with disabilities get the equipment that they need to live healthy, active lives. Children outgrow their equipment and then it sits idle. We knew that if there was a “network” of families helping each other that we could put these pieces back to work.

Q: What has been one of the most memorable moments in your your business?

Well there have been so many. We have seen children take their first steps in our office, ride a bike for a first time and sit upright without a parent’s support. We are so happy to provide supports to help children to be able to go to school, church and community activities.

Q: What is one of the biggest challenges of your business?

All of our operations are run on community donations. That is why community partners, like KD Kanopy are so important to keep our services running. We are able to serve more children with this support.

Q: Have you seen the support for KMN grow over the years?

Yes but there are always more families who need help. As we serve more families our name is getting out into the community creating more demand. Kids Mobility Network is the only organization providing this service in Colorado.

Q: What is something readers would be surprised to know about you or your business?

I think that most folks think that things like wheelchairs would be covered by insurance. This equipment is very expensive. A child’s manual wheelchair (without power) costs about $7,000. Insurance, (if a family has insurance) pays a fraction of the cost. The family must come up with the rest of the funds. This can be out of reach for many families. That is where Kids Mobility Network comes in.

3 Things to avoid if you want your canopy to last

At KD Kanopy, our canopies are built to last and it’s not uncommon for us to hear from a customer that they’ve been using the same canopy for over a decade. But even still, there are a few things you can do that could cut down on the life of your new canopy. Avoid these mistakes and you will have a canopy that stands the test of time.

  • Pooling water. When it rains, it pours. Our canopies can stand a light rain, but the fabric is not water resistant. That means it’s best to not leave your canopy unattended when it rains; if the water is allowed to pool up, the weight of it could damage your frame.

  • Leaving it for days. As the name implies, our pop up canopies are meant to be put up with minimal hassle. The same goes for taking it down. These tents were not made to withstand Mother Nature for days on end. If you plan on using it at a multi-day trade show, do yourself and your canopy a favor: take it down at the end of the day.

  • Excessive wind. While you can’t predict wind gusts, you can usually get a forecast on how windy any given day will be. If the forecast calls for wind, it might not be the best day for your canopy. A sudden gust of wind could tear your canopy top.

Take these simple care instructions to heart and your KD Kanopy tent will last for years and years to come. And as always, the KD Kanopy customer support team is always here to help and answer any questions.

The TearDrop Banner: Stylish and Attention Grabbing

If you ever drive down a street filled with restaurants or car dealers, you might see their custom signage trying to catch your attention. Do you ever wonder where they get signs like that? Look no further!

KD Kanopy has been making custom canopies and shade canopies for over two decades, but what you might not know is we also offer branding efforts in another form: customized banners. Our teardrop banner is ideal for indoor and outdoor events and comes in three different sizes, from 4’ to 14’. With digital printing on both sides of the teardrop, your banner can have the same cool branded look as your business’ custom canopy. The best part? Setup is super simple. Check out the video on how to set up the teardrop banner on our YouTube Channel.

Not every occasion calls for a full custom canopy due to limited space or event restrictions. That is where the teardrop banner can step in. It allows you to showcase your brand in a small compact space while still grabbing the attention of passersby.

KD Kanopy has manufactured high-quality, custom pop up canopies and digital signage for a wide-range of corporate and casual clients. Our products are easily customizable with digital or screen printing. Looking to stand out in the crowd? Go to KD Kanopy for your custom canopy needs.
