10 Unforgettable Entertainment Options for Your Next Party

If you are planning a memorable summer party, the chances are that you are looking at entertainment options that are truly unique and unforgettable – but also fit a tight budget. Don’t fret! There’s plenty of alternatives bound to fit your party’s theme and ambiance. Let’s look at some of the best ones below. 

Virtual Reality Game Corner

If you are looking to captivate your guests with cutting-edge technology, look no further than setting up a virtual reality game corner! Depending on your crowd, you can choose engaging games like Beat Saber or explore virtual worlds that cater to all ages. 

A few key tips to make this the main entertainment activity of the evening:

  • Ensure you have enough VR headsets and a large play area. 
  • Create a comfortable seating space nearby, so guests waiting for their turn can enjoy the show. 
  • Pick games that are easy to jump into for short periods
  • Organize mini-tournaments and offer small prizes to the winners.

Live Acoustic Band or AI Musician

Hiring a live acoustic band brings a personalized vibe to your party. You could opt for local bands playing your favorite genres or even ask your friends to perform at an open-mic-like party. 

If you’re looking for a futuristic twist, consider an AI musician. An ai girl can play your favorite tunes and help you customize the entire event. Last but not least, consider making your party a karaoke night! Not only will this provide entertainment through the whole night, but it can also make for an excellent activity everyone can take part in!

DIY Cocktail Workshop

Spice up your birthday bash or midsummer celebrations with a DIY cocktail workshop! You can consider hiring a professional mixologist to guide your guests through creating their own signature drinks. Alternatively, you can opt for a DIY version of this activity by providing recipes and a variety of spirits, mixers, and fresh garnishes. And, of course, ensure non-alcoholic options are available to encourage everyone to take part in the activity regardless of whether they can’t or won’t drink alcohol. 

Outdoor Movie Night

If you are looking to give your party more of a laid back vibe, opt for an outdoor movie night. For this activity, all you need is a classic or crowd-pleasing film that fits your party’s theme and it’s age-appropriate. 

Then, follow some of these tips for the perfect backyard movie night:

  • Set up a large screen and a quality projector
  • Create a relaxed atmosphere with blankets, lawn chairs, and fairy lights. 
  • Provide a snack bar with popcorn, candy, and drinks. 
  • Consider offering individual picnic baskets for a touch of luxury. 
  • If weather permits, add fire pits to keep everyone warm and provide extra ambiance.

Silent Disco

If you are looking to enjoy a night of dancing but don’t want to disturb the neighbors, consider planning a silent disco party! A great way to plan this event without much stress is to hire a provider that supplies wireless headphones and multiple DJ streams. This setup allows guests to choose their playlist, making it easy to cater to diverse musical tastes. 

Alternatively, you can set up your own silent disco night by investing or handing out headsets and creating a playlist. Make sure to add an extra layer of fun to the party with LED lights and uplifting decor, and encourage guests to wear funky, glowing accessories to boost the experience as a whole!

Food Trucks 

Food trucks are an excellent option to provide fantastic party food while adding diversity and catering to different needs. Plus, they can save you time and energy if you don’t have to prepare and cook food! 

Select trucks that offer popular options like gourmet burgers, tacos, vegan dishes, and desserts. After all, there’s nothing better than a private ice cream cart!

Just make sure to arrange the space to create a mini food court atmosphere, complete with comfortable seating and shaded areas. And, of course, don’t forget about the music to throw a memorable food festival right in your backyard!

Lawn Games 

Nothing brings life and excitement to a garden party like lawn games! They bring everyone together and ensure that different social groups mingle without awkwardness. 

Some of the lawn games that are perfect for both kids and adults include:

  • Ring toss
  • Spikeball
  • Bocce 
  • Bucket golf
  • Croquet 
  • Giant Jenga


Regardless of which option you choose, set up classic games that are easy to learn and fun for all ages. Also, don’t forget to space games throughout your yard and prepare game kits in advance, ensuring you have everything needed before the party begins. 

Fire Pits or BBQ Corner

Adding a fire pit or BBQ corner adds warmth and a relaxed vibe to your party, especially if you are planning to roast your own vegetables or even throw a pizza night!

For your fire pit, opt for a safe, well-ventilated area and provide ample seating where guests can gather around. Offer cozy blankets for added comfort and ask a friend who excels in grilling to help you prepare foods and ingredients. Or just enjoying gathering around a campfire sharing stories!

Magic Show

If you love magic shows, your guests are likely to do so too! If you are not a magician yourself, consider hiring a professional who specializes in the kind of parties you are looking to throw, such as bachelorette parties or kids’ birthday parties. 

Of course, be sure everyone at the party knows about the show and is ready to attend at the designated time. You may also set up seating and arrange anything that may be needed beforehand. The magician you’ve hired will be able to help you better understand how to set up the area for maximum impact!

Themed Costume Contest

Last but not least, throw the party into the main entertainment activity by throwing a themed costume contest!

Choose a unique and accessible theme that inspires guests, like “Time Travel,” “Favorite Fictional Characters,” or “Retro Revival.” When sending out your invites, offer simple guidelines and suggest resources for costume ideas to encourage participation. 

Then, on the day of the party, provide prizes for various categories such as “Most Creative,” “Best Couples’ Costume,” and “Funniest Attire.” 

This may seem like a simple idea, but it’s sure to transform any gathering into an unforgettable party!
