1. Virtual or Outdoor Sip & Paint
Paint & Sip events are always a resident favorite. Do it virtual or take outdoors. A nature or City Skyline Theme class might be just what residents need.
2. Virtual or Outdoor Arts & Crafts
Arts & crafts resident events or resident events where residents have something physical to take home are always a hit. This event can be done virtually or in person outdoors.
3. Outdoor Movie
A great resident event that is very family friendly. This can be done monthly and the best part is that you can have residents vote on what movies they want to see.
4. Outdoor or Rooftop Fitness Classes
After a year of virtual classes, residents will enjoy being able to workout with others in real life.
5. Flower Arrangement Class
What is more spring that flowers? This is fun event for residents to explore their creative sides and learn a new skill.
6. Outdoor Live Comedy
Based on dating profile bios, 99.9% of people like to laugh. So bring on the laughs with an outdoor comedy show.
7. Virtual or calligraphy 101 Class
A great resident event is one where residents get to learn a new skill and get something physical to take home. A calligraphy class covers all two – your residents get to learn a new skill and make phone postcards or art they can give to friends and family.
8. Grab & Go Cocktails
This is really cheap and fun event that residents will love. Go to your local liquor store, grab some drinks and mixers. Have residents pick up from the lobby or hand deliver door by door. Hand delivering door to door is a great way to get some face time with residents who have been locked up in their units the last 12 months.
9. Community-Wide Fitness Challenge
Lots of ways you can do this. Set a community goal like 1 million steps in 1 month and have residents track their steps on their own devices. Plan a community 5K. Do it virtual etc. Spice it up with prizes and social #sweatySelfie posts.
10. Outdoor DJ Yoga and Brunch to Go
Fitness, live music, brunch…what could be a better resident event and way for your residents to start their Saturday morning?
