5 Creative Winter Event Ideas

December 20th, 2017 by Brittney Settlage

Ugly Sweater Party

This popular event theme for the winter is a fast and easy way to gather your friends, family, or co-workers. Encourage a little competition with a contest for best sweater. Rent out a space, reserve a party room at your favorite restaurant or host it in your home or office.

Ice-skating Event

Simple winter event ideas can come from your own seasonal traditions. Getting a group together at a local ice-skating rink is a fun and simple way to host an event. There’s nothing like a little ice, a cool breeze and cute mittens and scarves to make everyone feel like they’ve crossed into a winter wonderland.

Gingerbread House Contest

Chime into your childhood memories by assembling a gingerbread house. Set up stations with all the necessary items. Teams can compete to make the most creative house, while those who just came to watch, or vote can enjoy snacks and refreshments.

Movie Night

Nothing spreads holiday cheer like one of the classics. Find a venue with space for a projector and invite everyone to enjoy one of your favorite seasonal movies. Prepare popcorn, snacks and hot cocoa so everyone is ready to get cozy and enjoy.


There are plenty of winter snacks that anyone can bring to your winter celebration. Pie, chili, sugar cookies, and stuffing are delicious dishes that fill your bellies and make you feel cozy on a chilly winter day. Provide a main dish then ask everyone else to sign up to bring their own. This is a great way to share your traditional recipes with others while showing off your baking skills.
