Cost of an Employee Appreciation Day Event Tailgate Party

Your employee appreciation day event tailgate party cost can vary depending on what type of event or venue you choose to host it at, complexity of menu and other tailgate party rentals and amenities chosen. For instance, choosing a NY Giants or Philadelphia Eagles employee appreciation day party might be more expensive than a NY Jets, Rutgers Football or PNC Bank Arts Center Concert event which will be a more inexpensive staff appreciation day event. Outside of just the venue or event you choose to attend is the type of staff appreciation day catering you choose and any other rental options like the Ultimate Tailgating Trailer from Man Cave Events. Generally speaking you could expect to spend anywhere between $30 - $200 for most employee appreciation day events, with on site being less expensive than an off site staff appreciation day.

If you are searching for Employee Appreciation Week ideas and you have a more robust budget to work with, consider making it a tailgate party themed week for your staff appreciation days. You can bundle on site tailgate party rental activities and catering with offsite activities and even tailor the catering menu to be a tailgating tour with different dishes for different cities or teams. For example your tailgate tour could start with cheesesteak inspired menu options for the Eagles, southern BBQ finger licking options for the Cowboys, cajun flare for the Saints or these can all become stations representing favorite teams around your office for this staff appreciation day idea.
