It’s fall festival time, and it’s not too late to start planning your fall festival. Whether you theme is just an autumn theme, or you decide to go for a Halloween theme, there are several things you can plan for in advance to make the event management process easier.
1. Begin with a theme. A fall theme is fairly generic but you can choose to have an underlying theme; an old fashioned atmosphere with bobbing for apples or even pie eating contests can be a great start. If you are having a fall festival closer to Halloween, have people dress up and create a more spooky theme with Halloween themed treats and pumpkin carving contests.
2. Begin delegating tasks. Start by creating a list of volunteers and tasks that need to be completed. If you are creating decorations for the event or if you are in charge of making snacks or catering, make sure you have a deadline set in place to give people an expectation.
3. As an event planner, you have to think of how to fix issues that may come up. Create backup plans for some scenarios that might arise before or during your fall festival so that you are prepared in any event. If needed, ask volunteers what they think; sometimes getting the input of others helps solving problems easier and more productive.
4. If it’s in your budget, contact an event planning company. Professional event planners can assist with organizing your event, catering and choosing a venue location. If you’re short on time and can’t create booths and games in time for the event, you can also rent games and booths from an event planning company.
