It seems like only yesterday we were providing you with tips for holding the perfect summer bash. Now, it’s almost August – the kids will be heading back to school, the days will be getting darker, faster, and the temperatures will start to slowly become more frigid. While the end of the summer can be disheartening, it’s also another reason to celebrate. Labor Day is the perfect way to celebrate the end of a great summer, perhaps it was your best summer yet. Don’t they just seem to get better and better each year?

If you’re hosting a Labor Day party to wrap up summer, we’ve got some ideas for the perfect Labor Day party venue. Let us know if you agree by commenting below!



The beach gives you multiple opportunities to keep party-goers entertained. Guests can swim, tan, play beach volleyball, throw a Frisbee, or hang out around the beach bonfire.



Renting a cottage for you and your friends is another great option for Labor Day. Most cottages offer non-motorized water sports, like kayaks and paddleboards, which provides you with some extra activities to keep you busy. The nice thing about renting a cottage is it keeps you prepared no matter what the weather. If it’s a bit chilly or rainy and you don’t want to be outside, most cottages are equipped with TVs and movies to keep you entertained. If you go all out, some even have pool or ping pong tables.



Planning a house party? This might seem like a convenient idea for you, but it can also lead to a lot of responsibility and clean up in the long run. Check out our post on necessary permits if this is the route you’re taking so you’re fully prepared to take on this task.

Block Party


A block party is a great way to bring your neighbours together and get to know one-another better. It also helps take off some of the responsibility and divide it among multiple people to keep you from getting too overwhelmed during the planning process. Just make sure you’re aware of any neighbourhood ordinances that could come into play here.



Booking multiple campsites and going camping with a group of friends is another great way to spend the Labor Day Weekend. Hang out around the campfire, on the beach, hiking, or playing cards at the campsite. Have everyone pitch in for food and drinks to split up the costs and the responsibilities. Then, at the end of the weekend, you just have to pack up and head home.
