Chicago is famous for many things, but a long summertime isn’t one of them. Thankfully, the weather is gorgeous following the official season, and that makes it a spectacular time to host your “summer” company events later in the year.
So what types of events can you plan once the blazing heat dissipates and cool breezes make their way on the scene? Turns out there are plenty, and they’re ones that will have your team looking forward to fall.
Fall Fest Picnic & BBQ
If you take all the best parts of autumn – hot apple cider, pumpkin carving, creative costumes – you have the perfect fall festival for your company. This seasonal event is a great way to enjoy the comfortable weather outside while bringing the group together. You could even add some BBQ, tailgating and live music for the most festive gathering.
Oktoberfest / Craft Beer Garden BBQ
Think lederhosen, polka music, schnitzel and good beer – and you have the perfect Oktoberfest party. Experience one of our most popular fall events in September or even October, after the typical summer company event season but well before the winter. It’s a great way to wrap up third quarter, before the busy holidays arrive. Not to worry, you can skip the Lederhosen and polka music and focus on beer, fall food and fun!
Haunted Scavenger Hunt
If you are looking for a fall event that is not a company picnic, we have just the thing! Enjoy the sights and sounds of Chicago AND the beautiful fall weather on a Haunted Scavenger Hunt. Visit haunted locations throughout the city while solving clues and racing against other teams made up of your coworkers. This event is especially good for out of town groups or teams that have been in meetings all day, who need to stretch their legs and have some fun!
