Community Event Ideas

Community Event Ideas

Are you an event planner in charge of coming up with community event ideas for a company, business, or office event? Or maybe it’s a private affair. Is that right? Listen, of course we have a lot of fantastic event ideas listed for you below, but whether it’s a product launch, conference event, or a corporate party, drive this one point home. The more you can get your attendees and invited guests involved, engaged and talking about your event, the better! The objective is to have an event that gives every person memorable experiences while achieving the most important goals of the event itself. All the event decisions should be lined up to support that objective. After you get all your ideas together, start thinking about how to cohesively incorporate those ideas into your event.

Creative Community Event Ideas

When it comes to creative community event ideas, there is one problem you are likely to encounter. The feeling of “been there, done that” present in the minds of your guests the moment they are invited to the event. The truth is, they are probably right. But you can really change that perception by doing something different and innovative from very the start. You can make them feel good when they think about the upcoming event. You can make them feel excited and eager to attend. You can make them feel important! And the sooner, the better!

So how do you do that? You do something that no one else is doing. You do it with the most overlooked, untapped and underutilized opportunity available to you. The invitations! It’s true; the way you invite your guests and VIPs can make all the difference. So, be different!

Sending Gigeo® personalized video invitations is the easiest way to engage your guests and VIPs while creating a buzz long before your event begins.

Community Event Ideas

Are you in charge of a community event, company event, golf tournament or the event entertainment ideas? The objectives and goals of most corporate events will differ substantially for every event. This makes the planning, production and execution of your community event very different from another event. Because of this, it can be quite challenging to square the corporate objectives and goals for the event you are planning. Additionally, there is the added pressure for new creative and innovative guest experiences and event ideas. And it really makes no difference whether the event is for live, in-person attendees or a virtual event.

Listed below you will see a variety of creative, inspiring, innovative and out of the ordinary community event ideas to help get your event planning headed in the right direction.

Flap Jacks Breakfast
Who wouldn’t be motivated by having pancakes for breakfast? It is delicious and cost-effective because you can provide various fillings. Therefore, you don’t need to spend money on other breakfast items.

Pies, Sweets and Desserts Bake-off
Offer cooking classes and workshops where participants can give them to a buffet (or sell them to raise funds.) A local restaurant can set up a pop-up booth to sell the food as an interesting sponsorship idea. Of course, you can turn it into a competition too.

Street Party/Block Party
Although it is difficult to obtain these permits (if you need to close the streets), they are excellent and memorable because they involve bringing neighbors together. These traditions help build safer communities and provide a friendly environment for children to grow up.

Potluck Dinner Meals
A wonderful community catering idea involves each participant bringing a food item to the buffet table. A variation of traditional potluck meals can include holding outdoor barbecues. A designated oven allows the chef and other participants to take care of the side dishes. For large events, you need to make sure you have allocated certain food items to different people. This is a great way to bring people together and have a conversation about what everyone brings.

Crowd Activated Interactive Games
Enhanced technology means you can use a large digital screen to display games that are controlled by audience participation. For example, the audience’s voice-controlled arm-wrestling involves dividing the crowd in half and giving them two separate sounds, such as clapping or shouting. The software will pick up the sound, and the loudest sound will win the game. This causes the digital display to show it as an arm-wrestling match. There are many other options, from table tennis to screen football, all with different interactive technologies. Nevertheless, it will definitely attract more people.

Community Clean Up
The benefits of community cleanup are twofold. First, the neighbors enter the community space, connect with each other and work towards a common goal. Second, the entire community will benefit from well-maintained gardens, parks, and public spaces. You can make community cleanup more fun by creating t-shirts, providing refreshments and rewarding those who collect the most garbage, etc.

Open Air Movie Screen
Drive-through cinemas are always a fun option. Cars pull up to watch an old movie and can be served snacks by staff. For a more introverted community, this is great, as everyone has their own space!

Fitness Workshop
As attendees pay more and more attention to health, fitness seminars are becoming increasingly popular. Arrange a leader to warm up the crowd, play some upbeat music, and get them moving. Although this is most effective in large open areas (such as at festivals), you can still accomplish this in a limited space by adjusting the type of exercise you do.

Home Tours
Admit it; we all want to know what the inside of our neighbor’s house is like. House tours provide an opportunity for proud homeowners to show their designs. Curious visitors also have the opportunity to learn about their neighbours’ lives, gain house design ideas, and connect with other people in the community. A home tour can also easily become a fundraising event because you can charge entrance fees.

Local Walking Tours
Walking tours allow attendees to see the best community sites. You can visit restaurants, breweries, and local cuisine or choose a themed tour with historical or cultural significance.

Community Drive
Giving back to the community by planning an activity that directly benefits them. For example, play some music, let everyone pick up trash in the local park, and get rewards for activities and games. It adds a sense of community pride, and the work is done much faster (and at a lower cost) than the local authorities have to deal with.

Craft Stations
Giving back to the community by planning an activity that directly benefits them. For example, play some music, let everyone pick up trash in the local park, and get rewards for activities. It adds a sense of satisfaction in the community, and the work is done much faster (and at a lower cost) than the local authorities have to deal with.

Giant Garden Games
Split into several teams to play large-scale chess, connect 4 or building blocks to create a family game day.

Gardening
Invest in local scenery by initiating gardening community activities to beautify public areas, caring for existing plants, and possibly planting more trees. You can use potted plants for attendees to take buy and take home.

Treasure Hunts
Turn public or local public areas into an ideal place for treasure hunting! These can be enhanced by using QR codes that provide digital rewards. For local sponsors, this may be another idea, and community vendors will provide prizes to find.

Quizzes
Quizzes add a competitive element to a community event that many people enjoy. You can turn this into a fundraising event by having people pay into a prize pot that the winning team will receive a share of.

Dance-a-Thon
Use music to hype everyone up and integrate various genres to attract everyone. Everyone can dance until the end of the party. Make this even more interesting by hiring a band, piano, or skilled MC to mix and try new music combinations of classical music and current music.

Mobile Drinks
Order a drink or food truck to provide for your event. It is informal, but you can choose various options and offer tailor-made drinks. The truck can be parked and left for the whole day for people to visit. You can also have people on bicycles that can deliver food and drinks, which is especially useful in the summer.
