Summer is a time for kids to have a break from school, but that doesn’t mean there aren’t school-related events that happen during the season! School teams and clubs often have summer fundraisers to collect money for the upcoming school year, since educational budgets don’t always cover everything a group needs. At Impact Canopy, we can help you find the perfect custom canopy for any outdoor school event. Look through our online catalog today!
Fun Fairs and Carnivals
Summer is the perfect time for outdoor fun, and setting up a fun fair or a carnival can be a great way to raise money for a school club or athletic team. It doesn’t matter if it’s for junior-varsity cheerleading or the drama club, having rides, games, and live performances should attract people from all over town.
One thing to keep in mind is the temperature during the summer. It can get hot quickly during July and August, and you’ll want to provide people with somewhere they can get out of the sun. After they’re done playing games along the midway or riding the carousel, they can duck under a canopy tent and beat the heat for a while. You can even set up misting fans and other cooling stations to help them stay comfortable!
Drinks and Snacks
When people come out to a summer school fundraiser, it’s important to provide several drink and snack options. You don’t need to have a full kitchen up and running, but a few food stands that offer hot dogs, hamburgers, and lemonade can make your event a hit. Custom tents will keep the sun off the food and beverages as they’re served, and people won’t have to stand in the sun as they wait in line to order.
If you want to have cotton candy, funnel cakes, and other treats, then it’s a good idea to put those under a tent as well. People often love ordering sweets during a carnival, and it definitely adds to the atmosphere when people are carrying around cotton candy on a stick. Plus, all the proceeds go to your organization!
As we mentioned above, live performances are often a big draw for people. Live bands, dance groups, and other performers need somewhere to display their abilities, and a stage under a large canopy can be a great setting. You can set up chairs for the audience and erect a small (or large) stage for the performers. No one will be sitting in the sun, and there will be plenty of space for actors, dancers, or musicians to move around the tent.
Live performance can be a great way to showcase the school group’s talents, especially if it involves drama, music, or cheerleading. You can give the audience a glimpse of what they’re supporting, and the performance could even spur people to give even more!
