Events that Commonly Need Porta Potties

written on August 11, 2019

Hosting an event can be a stressful job, especially if it’s a large event with a lot of attendees. Knowing your location is important, especially when it comes to the restroom facilities that you’ll have available.

If you’re hosting one of these types of events, you may want to consider renting some restrooms for your guests because existing facilities often aren’t enough to support the existing need. Here are a few common types of events that usually face this issue.

  • Fairs/Carnivals
  • Outdoor Sporting Evnets
  • Conventions
  • Backyard Parties
  • Outdoor Weddings


Looking to host a fun-filled event with attractions for all ages? Fairs and carnivals are usually great events for the whole family. However, they can face some difficult issues, especially when it comes to where they’re being held. School carnivals may be held on a weekend when the rest of campus facilities are closed, including restrooms. Other types of carnivals are usually held wherever there’s an abundance of open space, which usually means there’s not much else around, including restrooms. As an organizer, be sure to find out if any facilities will be available, and if any available facilities will be enough to support your expected crowd.

Outdoor Sporting Events

Lots of local schools will usually open their athletic fields for other uses during weekends, however they usually keep the rest of their facilities locked up tight to prevent any attendees from breaking in. Often times this means restrooms will also be shut tight. If you know you’re going to be hosting a sporting event, such as a Pop Warner football day or an AYSO soccer tournament, you’ll definitely want to make sure there are restrooms available to fans and participants.


Conventions come in all sorts of forms shapes and sizes, and making sure attendees have the ability to use the restroom when they get there is crucial. This is especially true if you’re expecting a large crowd or your event is going to go for more than just a few hours. Additionally, depending on your convention, some people may wish to change into costume when attending, which means you’ll need facilities where they can do so.
