Great product! A family member originally bought one of these which was great for a wet and windy family camp trip so we headed out to grab one straight away for us. I watched a YouTube video on how to pop up and then it was a one woman show popping the gazebo up with no dramas at all super easy!! We’ve used for camping, sport days and family gatherings. Would buy again! The size is great too!!
Purchased in December 2019 at Anaconda for $187.00.
Fantastic product lasted 7 years
We found this a great product. Used for approx 7 Years at the beach. Only just ripped now. We put guy ropes on all corners for extra wind stability. Great product and about to buy a new one. Prob go the delux
Purchased in January 2012 for $199.00.
Fantastic shade shelter. Packed bag is smaller than a gazebo of same shade size (i.e. 4m x 4m) for those with limited car space. It also is a roomy bag for repacking catering for the messy folders (1 person folding compared to neatness achieved by 2 people). We (2 people) got it up in 10 minutes without instructions (found them attached to the inside of the bag when packing up). Used for water's edge shelter when skiing. The sidewall is easy to attach/remove (if you didn't use the 'feet rope guide', you'll need to adjust the legs) - especi...ally useful for the shifting morning to afternoon sun for ultimate shade. Made sure it was packed dry for storage. With proper care, should last a few years. Friends with an older version have been using theirs for 7 years for camping/skiing trips with no issues.
Top item that was used on 43 occasions (days) and the material has finally given out (last week). The frame is in excellent condition and if available we will seek out a replacement cover although I am aware that the cost of a new dome now is a lot less than the original cost.
Wonderful Product recommend to anyone
We have had our event 14 for at least seven years and love it. It is common sense not to have the skin on in very windy weather. Thanks Coleman
I bought one of these a few years ago and have used it many times since. Its great and a very good shape for a shelter - we've had ours up in a number of storms and its stood up well (I do peg mine down pretty well). I find its easy to set up too (as long as you follow the instruction and use the measure thingy that comes in the bag). I'm not a fan of the side panels, but friends who we camp with regularly use them on 3 sides and they like them.
We liked it so much we bought two for our Car Club
We have now purchased 3 Coleman Event 14 Deluxe, first time setting up took around 30 mins following their instructions, after that I can now do it on my own in around 10 to 15 minutes, and dismantle it just as quick, love how compact it is when packed away, and when set up so much more shade that other square type gazebos and yes we still have two of these too, we liked it so much we convinced our local car club to buy a couple of them, last event we have 40 people under the two, was terrific, many great comments from the members, even cooler than the other square type Gazebos too. For the $269.00 we paid they are cheap enough, after a couple of years of use if ours finally breaks, we would buy another.

Excellent Product, Easy to use.
Contrary to some reviews, we have used ours several times, we have found this product to be excellent.
My wife can assemble and dismantle in around 15 minutes.
BUT do yourself a favour, read the instructions. It is most important secure the feet correctly, which is very easy with tapes supplied. This ensures the feet will not spread out and rip the cover or joints. Easy !!
Excellent Product, Easy to use.
Event 14 deluxe
I have the deluxe and cant fault it, it has survived big winds, raging storms and even hail. This is not a cheap instant fold out gazebo you must take your time to set it up correctly, or as others have mentioned it will flap around and tear itself apart.
I am still amazed with the resilience of this tent.
We purchased this tent specifically for the purpose of covering part of our 30m2 deck for a BBQ party when the weather forecasts turned grim for that event. I put cleats into the deck and then tied off the shock cords to them as well as screwed the bases down. (I would assume you can similarly secure it with the supplied tent stakes, but I didn't use those.) It comes with one side for a sun shade, but we bought two more to create an enclosure if needed. We put the tent up a week before the party to get a feel on how it would fair and was con...fident of it accommodating our outdoor guests in comfort. On the day the winds kicked up to 50-60km gusts and blowing rain and we put the other two sides on. The dome did the Watusi the whole evening, but it stayed in place, no one got wet and it was unbelievably comfortable on the inside. We have a small patio heater and it was cozy for 20 guests for the overflow from inside the house. It was my spot personally as the host I wanted to ensure that my guests were happy. It far exceeded my expectations (I was stunned actually) and I feel has been tested successfully in extreme gonzo conditions. The only effect on the structure was that the shock cords were stretched on the windward side of the dome. With the sides off it makes a nice shelter from the harsh New Zealand sun in the summertime. This tent is definitely worth every cent I paid for it and more.
Forget the gazebos - this thing is better in every way.
I mainly bought the Event14 as a common area when we go camping. It is perfect for this as the number of openings (4) can be decreased if needed. Having the arched leg design gives it heaps more latteral strength in windy conditions that usually kill the traditional 4 upright leg gazebos. The Event14 also has a vented ceiling panel that allows air pressure to go in, up and out - also stabilizing the unit against 'lift-off' in high winds.
Not difficult to erect or take down once you have done it a couple of times. Make sure you get the Gree...
Questions & Answers
Can anyone tell me where I get an event 14 insert so that I can join two gazebos together? Thanks Donna
Hi did you get answer on this?
I have an event 14 and I love it. Not had any problems until last weekend camping under trees and I think a sharp twig or branch from above pierced the canopy. Not happy Jan, I can tell you. Does anyone know if you can patch them and if so what is the best thing to use.? Or how much does a replacement canopy cost? Cheers Robyn
Nor Coleman or BCF would confirm a replacement cost you can purchase a sail amount of Sail Tape from either yacht supplies or wind surfing kite surfing repair businesses But Robyn it sounds to me your cover is on its way out so don't spend to much and you are up against the same problem as all of us , the replacement cover is exactly the same , you would think Coleman would cop it on the chin and admit they era and supply proper uv protected covers but no they continue to deceive the public
