Bill & Taylor Mann

From an early age Bill Mann knew he was destined to be in tents.

Bill Mann, a 3rd generation Montanan, began over 24 years ago as Northwest Canopy Rentals with several small tents, the largest a 30x60, the first rental company of it's kind in the Flathead Valley. As the years grew, so did Bill’s inventory, including a 60x210, capable of seating 1000-2500 guests.


Seeing remarkable growth over the last several years in weddings and events for Montana, Bill saw the need to add a store front and in 2012 opened Barn Door Event Rentals. Along with tent rentals, Barn Door Event Rentals is a full service rental company with everything you need for an event, not just tents!

After many great years in the business, Bill "retired" in 2019 passing the business on to his son,Taylor.  A very proud moment for Dad.
