ManageGo is a smarter, faster and better way to accept/pay online rent payments, manage maintenance support, and much more.

The air is crisp, the kids are back in school, and everything feels just a little cozier. That’s right–fall is officially here! Although summer is synonymous with pool parties and backyard BBQs, we believe autumn is the ideal event season. With cooler temperatures and lively holidays to pull a theme from, September to November is the perfect time to bring the community together. Not only are events just plain fun, but they also serve to enhance your residents’ experience which is crucial to resident retention and good recommendations for your properties. Keep reading for 5 event ideas to get your residents in the fall spirit! 

Pumpkin Painting

Pumpkins are the motif of the season and the perfect canvases to express your creativity. Hosting a pumpkin painting event is a simpler and safer alternative to carving, but still good ole fun for the entire family. Host this event in an outdoor amenity space and don’t forget to advertise it around your property.

Black Light Yoga

Spice up your regular resident yoga classes and glow with your flow! Bust out some black lights to set up in your activity space and provide glow stick jewelry to amplify the black light effect. Elevating a class you already offer is a smart way to increase resident engagement and bring in new participants all year round. Dress code: neon activewear!

Fall Watch Party

Nothing says fall like a cozy watch party. Whether it’s a spooky kid-friendly movie like Hocus Pocus or a live stream of a popular football game, bring your residents together around a screening event this season. Decorate depending on your theme and make sure to provide complimentary snacks for the occasion. Happy watching!

Costume Contest

With the month of October practically revolving around Halloween, it’s only fitting to host a costume contest for your residents. Serve refreshments and hand out gift bags filled with Halloween treats, elect three of your most creative staff members to judge, and tell your residents to show up in their best ensembles. Award your winners with a free amenity pass, or a gift certificate to a local coffee joint. Bonus: extend the invite to pets and double the fun.


So you’ve heard of Friendsgiving, but what about hosting a “Residentgiving” this season? Everyone loves a good excuse to get together and eat their hearts out. Decorate an amenity center with fall foliage and set up a buffet table complete with plates, cups, utensils, and a drink assortment. Have your residents volunteer to each bring a different fall-themed dish for the community to enjoy. This is a great opportunity for residents to get to know each other and experience a classic fall tradition in a new way. 

Keep It Seamless

Whatever events you decide to host this season, they don’t need to be a headache. You’ll want to make sure to advertise your events, keep track of RSVPs, and communicate updates with your residents–but these steps are seamless with property management software like ManageGo.
