Many neighborhoods across the U.S. enjoy celebrating the holidays together. This is where learning how to plan neighborhood festivals comes in handy! So, how can you plan the best neighborhood festival for your local friends this holiday season?
First, you need to consider a location. If you live in a colder climate, it may be a good idea to find a local community center that’ll allow your neighborhood to rent out a space for a weekend.
Second, you’ll need party rentals. This may include a party tent rental, rental chairs, renting round tables, renting linens, and more. Make a list of party rental equipment you’ll need to put booths around the space you’re renting as well as set up an area for a potluck dinner.
Third, you’ll need to make sure everyone in your neighborhood knows this festival is happening. Send out email invitations and mail out flyers giving out information about where the festival will take place, what people can do to help, and a link to a potluck sign-up. Families can also sign up to host booths. Face painting, cookie decorating, hang out with Santa, and other creative stations would be fantastic to include!
