April 2023 Apartment Resident Event Ideas For Multifamily Property Managers
Did you know that one of the best ways to keep residents happy is when you treat them like people? They’re more than a monthly paycheck; they have their own goals, dreams, and aspirations. Many residents might have a four-legged friend and be happy that you allow them to be there. So how can you increase happiness and bring residents together? Planning the next event might seem tough, but it doesn’t have to be! There are various options, from four-legged adventures to food trucks galore. Read this guide on the top resident event ideas for April 2023 today!
April Fool’s Day – Celebrated on April 1, April Fool’s Day is a celebration of practical jokes and trickery. Fool residents with a silly email or note posted to their doors. Or place plastic bugs in hallways for an extra freak out! Just don’t forget to tell everyone why afterward. Click here for great April Fool’s Day ideas.
Egg Decorating – Even if Easter has passed, this is a fun event for all. Bring hard-boiled eggs that everyone can paint. Either hire an artist to have everyone follow along or allow residents to get creative. At the end, you could do a contest for the best design. Provide painting supplies for the residents.
Passover Matzah Tasting – This year Easter and the first two days of Passover fall on the same weekend. Include residents in a Matzah taste test where you have various toppings for them to try on Matzah. You can’t forget to hand out chocolate-covered Matzah as an extra treat!
Celebrate Spring Break – During April, many school-aged students will have spring break. If you know the week that is used by the district the majority of school-aged residents attend, plan fun events to do during the day. A movie, scavenger hunt, or field day games are something all children would enjoy.
A Dog Party – Residents bring their pets to meet others and their four-legged friends. Consider having a happy hour for the event. If children will be there, ensure you have non-alcohol options such as grape juice or soda. Include various drinks and light appetizers. Don’t forget about pet treats for their furry friend. It’s also a great event to invite prospective residents.
Food Truck Ideas – Food trucks are some of the best events for residents. You don’t have to worry about catering or clean up. Food trucks are an excellent way for new residents to become familiar with the community. Create vouchers for residents to try the food at various food trucks. Have popular music playing to relax the mood. Consider parking in advance, so the food trucks don’t take up the visitor parking lot.
April “National Holiday” Celebrations
Every month we highlight “National Days” that make for great apartment resident events and activities. All of these come from the National Day Calendar and are a great reason to have an event or activity for your apartment residents!
National Name Yourself Day on April 9th – Set up a table with name tags and markers and let residents rename themselves! It will be fun to see all the silly names people come up with. Take photos and have residents vote for the best name creation.
National Pet Day on April 11th – Who doesn’t love their pet? Set up a table with various treats for dogs, cats, and maybe small animals to give away to pet owners throughout the day. Encourage residents to post photos of their pets to your property’s Facebook group to receive their tasty treats.
National Earth Day on April 22nd – If your property has a garden, invite your residents to do some gardening or even plant something themselves. For fun, decorate your electric vehicle charging stations. You could also organize for a tree to be planted on Earth Day. This is also a great opportunity to remind residents about recycling and inform them of the building’s recycling system.
National Superhero Day on April 28th– Run a movie marathon of superhero movies all day long! Offer popcorn, candy, and sodas to residents as they come and go.
