We provide fencing for outdoor events, including construction of entranceways and backstage areas. Available fencing includes:

  • Construction fence: Orange or green mesh fencing typically used in construction areas.
  • Barricades: Gray metal or white plastic barricades typically used on parade routes.
  • Decorative fence: Decorative white fencing, or other styles, used for campus events.

If these fencing types do not suit your needs, we will work with you to find ideal fencing.


Follow the Request a service link at the right, submit an Event Support Request and check Fencing in additional services. One of our event support experts will contact you to select and order the best fencing for your event and budget. Please consider these questions to guide our discussion and decisions:

  • What purpose will the fence serve?
  • Is privacy an issue?
  • Does the fencing need to be decorative as well as functional?

  • Construction fence: labor rates only
  • Metal barricades: $25 per 8’ section
  • Plastic barricades: $20 per 8’ section
  • White picket fence: $15 per 6’ section
