Here Are Four Fall-Kick Off Events for Your Community Center

With fall fast approaching, it will soon be time for your community center to launch your slate of fall programs and events. For some facilities, it can be difficult to adjust from summer to autumn, especially if a majority of your facility’s revenue comes from a swimming pool. In today’s blog post, Sports Facilities Advisory wants to help get your fall kicked off with four fall events for your community center.

1. Family Fun Day

A great way to kick off your fall slate is by throwing a family fun day right as summer turns the corner towards fall. Bring in food trucks and partner with local restaurants to provide your town with great food options for the day. You can also offer activities like flag football or ultimate frisbee for kids and teenagers, as well as arts and craft options for the younger ones.  

2. Fall Festival

This one typically comes a little bit deeper into fall, but a fall festival is a great way to get people involved with their community. You can rent carnival rides, provide food options, and even host competitions and live music for several days at your community center. You can use your fields for this or even block off the parking lot and set up shop there. A Fall Festival is an excellent way to get people involved in the community, while also promoting your facility.

3. City-Wide Bonfire

Nothing reminds people of fall quite like a bonfire. You will have to get permission from your town and coordinate with them throughout the process, but a city-wide bonfire is a staple fall activity. You can offer food for your guests and provide s’mores for dessert. And if you want to take it to another level, you can host hayrides and install a corn maze for the younger kids.

4. Halloween Party

A Halloween party isn’t exactly an event to kick off fall, but it will likely be the biggest event of the season for your community center. Provide young kids with a fun and safe place to get candy, enjoy games, and spend time with their friends and family. You can even coordinate with your town and local businesses to provide food or set-up trick-or-treat festivities for the night.
