As a company leader, you know the value of creating celebratory moments and team-building events for your employees. There’s value in cultivating a company culture of unity and togetherness, both in retaining your top talent and attracting new talent. Today’s brands are embracing company events more than ever, including those with hybrid elements to connect remote and global staff, too. And to be honest, there’s always a good time for a party. If you’re looking for reasons to celebrate with a corporate event or company outing, start scheduling according to the seasons! Get inspired by these seasonal event celebrations that make for perfect company events.
Spring Flings & Company Events
Say goodbye to the cold winter months by hosting a brilliant spring fling event for your staff! Depending on the weather, consider outdoor activities and New York venues and invite employees to celebrate the welcoming of spring. You can tie themes into the various spring holidays, too, including:
- St. Patrick’s Day
- Cinco de Mayo
- Memorial Day
Independence Day Parties
A great mid-year reason to host a corporate event or company party is Independence Day. Celebrate America with your teams by hosting a stunning New York event. Think red, white, and blue designs, fireworks, and mouth-watering summer fare. Incorporate bags tournaments and book popular live bands for a great time. Sparklers, Americana swag, and summer games will all make these company engagements fun and memorable for your staff.
Fall Corporate & Company Events
Many companies host fall-related corporate events as a way to get everyone together before the hustle and bustle of the holiday seasons. You can host all kinds of events, celebrating the various fall holidays or just shepherding in the new season of brilliantly colored leaves, cooler temperatures, and sweater weather. Think hay bales, hot ciders, and corn mazes. Incorporate pumpkin carving, apple bobbing, and costumes. Theme your events around the fall season or the various fall holidays for added fun and excitement.
- Labor Day
- Veterans Day
Traditional Corporate Holiday Celebrations
If you’re looking to create memorable experiences throughout the year for your teams, you can find a slew of traditional holidays worth commemorating every quarter. Explore these as pillar themes to celebrate your staff and serve as the cornerstone for your corporate events.
- New Year’s Parties
- Chinese New Year Parties
- Christmas Parties
- Hanukkah Parties

Obscure Holidays Are Worth Celebrating, Too!

If your brand calendar is full, with only a few options for random weekends throughout the year for hosting a company outing, you can still find fun and obscure holidays to celebrate.
- National Boss’s Day (October)
- National S’mores Day (August)
