August Resident Events for Busy Apartment Teams

Hello and happy August apartment party planning and resident retention experts!! We have put together a great list of residents events to help you celebrate your residents. We know how busy you are, so the themes are easy to adapt to your busy schedule and resident event budgets.

In addition to the monthly and daily themes, we recommend helping your residents beat the heat with air conditioned or pool forward events. August is the perfect time for a dive-in movie. August 8 is Sleep Under the Stars Night, so that could be a fun tie in as a "splash under the stars" or "watch the stars under the stars" event. And of course, your pups will definitely enjoy the opportunity to cool off in sprinklers or in a plunge pool.

Scroll down for a list of monthly celebrations, daily events and daily food themes that make it easy for you to create engaging social media posts, resident events, giveaways and grab 'n go's.


  • National Wellness Month // Highlight the healthy aspects of your community, including mental health (nature-filled location, short commute, 24-hour maintenance) to physical health (fitness center, places to walk/bike, areas to play with and walk dogs).

  • National Brownies at Brunch Month // Serve brownies at your brunches or coffee bar, create a grab 'n go with brownie mixes.

  • National Back to School Month // It's also National Crayon Collection Month, so if you are hosting supply drives, be sure to include them in the mix.

  • Romance Awareness Month // Help residents feel the love by hosting events such as speed dating, singles mixers, and a parent date night out.

  • National Dog Month // Isn't every month dog and cat month?? Treat your fluffy residents extra special this month with several giveaways, a special event, puppy plunge pools (or an end-of-the-season plunge into the big pools). If you would also like to celebrate community kitties in the same event, International Cat Day is August 8.
