    I have found many retractable covers for pergolas but no retractable pergolas. A practical "snap of a finger" retraction requires electricity. Especially for a heavy wooden structure.

    Sunbrella makes an outdoor fabric awning that is controlled by a handcrank. I think you they come in various sizes.
