4 Fun, Springtime Community Event Ideas

4 Fun, Springtime Community Event Ideas

Nothing brings a community together like a good old-fashioned hangout. While innovative amenities, stylish designs, and open layouts entice, what really helps a resident put down roots is the warm and fuzzy feeling that comes from forming bonds with neighbors.

One way to help friendships blossom this spring is to host an onsite event. With culinary delights, fun themes, and inviting decor, these unique happenings will lure residents out of their homes and into their vibrant communities.

A Classic Barbecue

As warm weather nears, so do our cravings for smoked meats and summer fruits and vegetables. To enjoy all of the above, host a community barbecue! Invite your residents to a day under the sun complete with hot dogs, hamburgers, and vegetarian delights. A barbecue is a perfect way to welcome the season and introduce new residents to amenities such as resort-style pools, cabanas, and crackling fire pits.

A Locally-Sourced Extravaganza

Introduce residents to their community and the local delights that surround it at a mixer that features food and drink from nearby businesses. Create a spread featuring the area's best bakeries, cheese shops, patisseries, and breweries. Not only will this foster relationships amongst your apartment community, but vendors will appreciate the support of your community.

Baseball Viewing Party

Baseball season is here, and with it comes a slew of fanatics and friendly rivalries. If you have a rec room or a social space with a big screen, host a viewing party where enthusiasts from both teams can enjoy drinks, snacks, and some rowdy fandom. If none of your shared spaces have a television, buy or rent a projector with a screen for a pop-up game day experience.

Dive-in Movies

If you do invest in a projector, utilize it for more than game day and host a movie night at the pool. Invite residents to enjoy a film from the comfort of a floatie, cabana, or poolside seat. Be sure to complete the movie watching experience with cinematic snacks like popcorn, Raisinettes, and other classic theater offerings. For bonus points, stay on theme by showing underwater classics like Finding Nemo, 20,000 Leagues Under The Sea, or The Little Mermaid.
