Awesome School Reunion Venues

Most reunions happen every five to ten years. They are a great way to connect with friends from elementary, junior high, high school or college. Whether you’re carpooling with friends you knew from your school or bringing a date, it’s more enjoyable if the venue is a good one. Savory food and drink, an appealing atmosphere and crowd all contribute to a successful event.

Awesome School Reunion Venues

Here are some great school reunion venues to remind you of happy, fun days with fellow classmates:

A Barn: Like the movie, Footloose, the fun, and dancing can occur in a barn. The smell of hay, music, and friendships inspire a rollicking good time.

The Beach: Want to feel young again? Go to the beach! The waves edging to the shoreline and relaxing ocean breezes are bound to make you and your school friends reminisce about the good old days, involving plenty of sitting by bonfires and toasting marshmallows. It’s a great place to connect again and celebrate living.

A Movie Theater: Want to relive your high school or college years? Show a slide show and celebrate all the fun times. Have popcorn, soda, and watch a movie together after. Rent out a theater and gather your guests for a star-studded evening.

A Cruise: The sun is just going down and the sky is full of golden hues. You can have your love with you on a magical, starry night, along with your friends from high school or college. The night is young and you’re ready for drinks and appetizers. It’s a great place, on the ocean or a bay to laugh and laugh some more.

A Scavenger Hunt: There’s nothing like going to the actual school you attended and remembering all the places you used to hang out…on the quad, in the cafeteria, or on the soccer field. Why not have teams where people can search for reminders of their homerooms or majors? The more creative the better. And a reward of pizza and beer after wouldn’t be so bad either.

A Service Activity-Joining together in the spirit of helping others is a great way to reconnect. Even if you didn’t volunteer together in high school, college or junior high, there’s nothing wrong with getting involved in helping nearby communities. Some ideas for service projects are beach cleanups, helping the homeless, volunteering to read to blind children, or helping out the elderly. There’s always a positive reward when serving and it doesn’t involve money…giving back is extremely fulfilling, especially with a group of friends and former classmates.

How to Choose Your School Reunion Venue

High school reunions are a great way to catch up with old friends and classmates. There is a lot of planning that goes into making this a night to remember, however, and it is important to choose the right venue to provide the perfect atmosphere for your big night. While there are a lot of details that go into organizing a reunion, the first step is deciding where it will take place. Here are a few things to consider when trying to answer how to choose your school reunion venue.

How to Choose Your School Reunion Venue

Space

Consider how many people you are inviting to the reunion and who will attend. Most of the time, even if you had a big graduating class, not everyone will show up. However, you want to have enough space for everyone to feel comfortable. Party Barn has a capacity of 225 guests with room for buffet tables, dancing space, and an outdoor area.

Cost

Make sure you have enough budgeted away for a nice venue. The right venue doesn’t have to cost a fortune, but it should be a big part of your budget since the location is such a big part of planning the event. Make sure you understand the hourly rates and any other extra fees, as well as what forms of payment your venue takes. We offer a comprehensive list of all costs.

Amenities

Certain amenities, such as air conditioning, tables, etc., may be important for your event depending on your needs and the time of the year. The party barn offers both heat and ac, a full kitchen, tables, a sound system, and plenty of parking for guests.

Atmosphere

This is one of the most important aspects of your school reunion venue. The Party Barn’s unique business model allows planners to create the perfect evening by choosing your own caterers, choosing to have more tables or more dancing space, and decorating how you want. This will allow you to create the perfect atmosphere for your event.
