For residents in Hoover, Alabama, Hoover Met Complex is the ideal location for holding community events. Today, the Hoover Met Complex team will share a few ideas for community events that you can host at our sports complex.
Fun Community-Building Events
- Shop swap – A swap shop, or community sale, is a great way to get people to interact. There are always bargain hunters on the lookout for their next great deal. Swap shops let your community find new homes for their unused items.
- Quiz night – Bring the top minds of your community together for a battle of wits. A quiz or trivia night can be a recurring event that quickly develops a tight-knit community. You can come up with new themes to keep the competition fresh from week-to-week.
- Arts & crafts festival – An arts & crafts festival is perfect for developing a creative outlet for the artists of your community. These festivals can help youths develop their artistic eye, show off art created within the community, and create an opportunity to attract tourism once the event grows.
- Community performance – Put on a dramatic event, such as a play or film festival, and you will quickly attract community members to your sports complex. There are a number of different performance art pieces that can be hosted at a sports complex, you can even schedule a regular open performance night.
- Farmer’s market – Farmer’s markets are extremely popular and a great opportunity to host an event early in the morning as opposed to most events which are generally held in the evening. You will attract lots of people with affordable fresh fruits and vegetables.
- Chili cook-off – Bring the people together in a fun and delicious chili cook-off competition. You can bring in city leaders as judges, giving the community a chance to interact with them. Best of all, everyone gets to enjoy some delicious chili.
- Trade show – A trade show is a great way to attract members of your community to your event while including local businesses as well.
