Partner Post: Virtual Event Ideas for Your Community

July 2, 2020 Coming Home by Associa

As the COVID-19 pandemic continues, people are searching for ways to social distance and still feel a sense of community. Luckily, with several videoconferencing platforms out there, it’s easier than ever. Bring the residents in your community together virtually with these fun event ideas.

Exercise Classes

Spending more time at home doesn’t mean we have to slack on our physical activity. Encourage your community to stay active by offering an online group exercise class like yoga and Zumba®. These workouts require no equipment and allow everyone to sweat from the comfort of their living room. 

Indoor Scavenger Hunt

Hosting an online scavenger hunt is a great way to get families in your community involved. Once all participants are ready to begin, distribute a list of household objects they’ll need to find in a certain amount of time. You can create your own or scour Pinterest for pre-made lists. At the end of the hunt, have everyone show their items or send in a picture, and whoever has the correct items wins. 

Decorating Contest

A patio-decorating contest is excellent for both multi-family and single-family communities. Choose a theme or ask your residents to get creative and come up with their own. Just be sure to remind people of any community rules beforehand! 

Virtual Bingo

Bingo is always a fun way to bring people together virtually. Send out downloadable bingo cards to your residents and live stream calling the letters until you have a winner. You can even make this an ongoing event and offer an incentive like a gift card to encourage more residents to play.


Cooking Classes

With everyone spending more time in the kitchen, an online cooking class is a perfect opportunity for residents to try new recipes. Share the recipe with your residents so they can gather the ingredients, then film your cooking session so everyone can join in on the fun.
