New Year Celebration Bonfire Night

Looking to plan a festive event to welcome the New Year? Try a bonfire night with games and campfire food! The goal is to have an evening full of fun and start off the year right making happy memories. We suggest starting the bonfire at dusk and keep it going ‘til 10 PM.

The combination of different types of music with an outdoor evening event is magical! You can either ask guests to bring their own instruments – like drums and guitars – or you can curate some music yourself for the event.


New Year Games

New Year Predictions

At the start of the event, arrange for several ice-breaking games!  For example, ask your residents to write down some anonymous predictions for the New Year. Have everyone to put their predictions in a bowl. Then, one by one, pick out a random prediction to read aloud.

***TIP*** You could also provide some prompts for predictions, or mention a few subjects to stay away from (e.g. avoiding religion and politics) to keep the event lighthearted and fun.

Two Resolutions and a Lie

Another entertaining game to play involves asking residents to tell others about three resolutions for the New Year, out of which two of them are true but one is a lie. The residents should guess which one of the resolutions is a lie.

Ribbon Dancing

Take your community evening to the next level! For this activity, you’ll need several ribbons cut into three-foot lengths.

Hold all the ribbons in the center and have all the guests clutch an end of a ribbon. The two people holding the ends of the same ribbon will have to be partners for a dance. It’s especially fun when there are some unusual pairings.

***TIP*** Repeat the ribbon pairings more than once to add more chances for laughs and fun.

Bonfire Snacks

No bonfire is complete without appropriate food and snacks to go with it. Offer traditional campfire grub to your residents to make the event fun and delicious! In addition to the main bonfire, a smaller fire or barbeque can be lit in another area to prepare the food such as hot dogs, marshmallows, and campfire popcorn.

Stew can also be a wonderful treat for a winter bonfire. We suggest preparing Brunswick Stew to leave the guests with a full warm belly and happy memories. For sweets, these easily prepared Fried Nutella ball treats would be wonderful for kids and adults alike!
