Planning for a community event

June 1, 2020 4:27 pm


When you plan a community event you can be faced with lots of things to sort out and not many people to help you. These kinds of events tend to be organised by volunteers and this in itself can cause problems as due to the nature of volunteering people freely give the time they have available. However, despite this, these kinds of events tend to be very popular and whole communities, whether based on geographical area or linked to a particular cause, always do really well. Here are some steps to take to planning your own community event.

  • Where – you need to find where you are going to hold the event. If you are basing this on a local community region then you will want to pick a location in that area. If you are basing it on a community of people who follow a cause you can pick a more neutral location
  • When – timing is important and again this will depend very much on who the community you are trying to attract is and the demographic of those people.
