How to Best Deal with Rainy Events

In our last blog we looked at events in the sun and how to plan for them, you can read that blog at . In true Autumn fashion, we decided that we should follow that by starting to look at some event tips for those dreaded rainy days! In this blog we are going to be telling you how you can best deal with rain at your event.

Keeping Dry

Whilst some tough cookies may be able to enjoy an event whatever the weather, some people just want to keep dry! An ideal solution for any outdoor event is to either giveaway or sell waterproof ponchos to attendees. Another idea for an event with a slightly larger budget would be theme-park style cyclone dryers. These dryers can dry you within just a few minutes, so a bit of bad weather won’t be able to dampen spirits.

Running for Cover

When the heavens open, it is always beneficial to have somewhere people can get some quick cover. The addition of a marquee or even a small gazebo will be a perfect option. To make sure people aren’t missing out on any entertainment, you could have a DJ playing from the area. This will mean people can carry on enjoying themselves just as much as they would elsewhere.

Catering Logistics

If you have catering or a sit-down meal at your event, you should always plan for the possibility of rain. Even if you plan to dish out the food in an outdoor space, it would be smart to have an indoor plan B where guests can enjoy their meal. A market-style catering tent is also a great solution if you want to create an experience under cover where guests can find the perfect food.

Here at Acorn Hog Roast we can cover your event catering needs, come rain or shine. For more information give us a call on 07513 919166 or visit
