Circus Tents from Armbruster

Recently Armbruster was awarded the contract to build a one of a kind Circus Tent for the Midnight Circus who performs in Chicago, Illinois. Armbruster worked close at hand with the Midnight Circus designing an elegant, long lasting, unique Circus Tent for their acts. The Chicago Park District then ordered their tent to be used for year round shows in parks around the City.

Armbruster has an interesting History with Circus tents, since that’s how Armbruster got into the tent making business. We started in 1875 manufacturing Wagon covers, tarpalins, canvas pillows, and awnings. Around 1890 a circus came to Springfield, IL and needed a new circus tent made. Armbruster then built them a Circus tent which entered us into the tent making business. Armbruster has a long history of making beautiful long lasting tents, and many Circus tents for various Circus companies throughout the years. Now 121 years later we are still making Circus tents on request.
Engineered with the finest European fabrics, stainless steel hardware, structural grade aluminum poles, and tensioning hardware, this is a true tension Circus tent. The tents we manufacture today are built with lifespans of 30 years or more. We have come a long way in our technology, materials and craftsmanship. Armbruster introduced the first true TensionTent in 1990.
