5 Memorable Corporate Party Entertainment Ideas to Try

Have you been thinking about a way to bring your employees closer to build a community? Are you thinking about ways to make the workplace more than just work?

You should plan a corporate event. But more than just an event, you’ll want the corporate party entertainment to stand out – and there are so many different ways to do that!

From hiring a live band to hosting an interactive show, you can host an event that everyone will love! Ready to learn more ideas for corporate party entertainment? Read on!

1. Host an Interactive Show 

If you want to stand out as a corporate party instead of doing what everyone always does with a typical cocktail party, you can change it up a bit with an interactive show.

Interactive shows are a great way to entertain your corporate company while also mixing it up. They come in many different forms as well, from comedy shows to variety shows where someone juggles, does a bit of comedy, and other entertaining acts. Or maybe you want to have a party that has hypnosis for anyone who wants to sit through the act.

Another interactive show could be hiring a group of belly dancers or any type of dance group to entertain the party.

Looking for a Christmas party idea? You could consider hiring carolers and elves to be the star of the party!

2. Hire a Live Band for a Relaxing Event

When it comes to entertaining the corporate world, a DJ isn’t going to cut it. Instead, you need to go above and beyond and hire a live band that will set the mood for the entire evening or day.

Depending on the type of vibe you want for your corporate party, you could go with a chill band, a country band, or a more upbeat band. That choice is completely up to you, but the live music will be a hit.

You just have to make sure you set up the band and the event space in a way that many people can enjoy the live music. Consider adding a small stage for the live band to sit a bit above the rest of the crowd.

3. Outsource the Entertainment and Go Out

There are many ways you can make an impact with your corporate event, and one way to do this is by going out to a different event space. Instead of staying in the workplace to have a party, you can go elsewhere to change things up.

This makes the party feel less corporate and more of a space to let loose. But where could you go that your employees will love?

Consider trying out an ax throwing place for a corporate event. If that’s not the vibe you want to go for, you could rent out a bar and then hire a band or other entertainment from an entertainment agency.

Here are a few other ideas for where to have a corporate event that will stand out:

  • Go to a brewery
  • Rent a yacht or dance boat
  • Go to a local park 

At any of these places, you can hire your own entertainment to bring to the party!

4. Host a Cocktail-Making Event

If you work in a corporate job with a smaller staff, hosting an event that seems more competitive and interactive is a great way to create more camaraderie. 

For a cocktail-making event, you can set the rules to be whatever you want! However, the main gist is that there will be teams of people making various cocktails for the other coworkers and guests. At the end of the night, everyone has to cast a vote for which cocktail was the best, the second best, and the third best.

The winner gets some sort of prize!

When hosting this event, make sure you have ample space and tables set up for the cocktail-making process. You also don’t want to forget to hire the right entertainment for the event! Consider hiring an upbeat live musician to get everyone in the mood for a friendly competition! 

5. Host Your Own Corporate Happy Hour

When you host your own happy hour, you’re saving everyone the money of going out. Instead, you are setting up an open bar in your workspace after a long workday. On this specific day, you could tell everyone they have to be done working at 4 and be in a specific place at a specific time.

Once there, the part starts!

You should have a live band for entertainment, seating, appetizers, snacks for everyone, and, of course, an open bar for everyone to enjoy the happy hour.

Sit back, relax, and watch everyone mingle to build community in the workplace!
