Tips For Planning A City Event

Interested in holding a local event in your city? Maybe you are thinking about holding an event at the local park, or maybe you want to have something at your city’s rec center. Either way, a lot goes into planning these kinds of events. You need to be prepared to work with city officials, figure out which restrictions may apply to your event, and to handling marketing and the hiring of entertainment. This can be a daunting task, so here are some tips for how to go through the process. 

Make Sure You Work With The Relevant City Department

It is important to work with the relevant city departments when planning an event like this. You may need to get certain permissions or even permits to hold the event in a public space. For instance, you may need to coordinate with your local Parks and Recreation Department in order to figure out if you can use a public park at a certain time for your event. Communicating with these kinds of officials is a must for a successful event.

Make Sure You Promote Online And At Key Locations

Once you have the right permits, you need to start thinking of promoting your event. You’ll want to promote both online and in key locations around town. You may want to print up posters and put them in strategic locations around the city. Online, you may think about starting a Facebook group and spreading news about the event through other social media networks. And of course, good old word of mouth is also a great strategy for getting the word out.

Hiring The Right Entertainment

Hiring the right entertainers is key to having a memorable event. Whether you are thinking about hiring clowns, magicians, DJs, or comedians, you need to make sure that you are getting someone who fits with your events’ theme and audience. You would hire a different entertainer for a business event than you would for a children’s party. You have to be aware of who your audience is going to be and then cater to them through their preferred method of entertainment.
