There are lots of great entertainment ideas to help make your graduation party ideas great.

I hope to give you some party entertainment ideas based on the graduate and family being the entertainers, plus ideas on professional entertainers and great equipment to hire. 

Party Entertainment - Family

While not every family can be the Von Trapps , we are all capable of putting on some kind of show to entertain our guests. As a group we can sing a favorite family song, a graduation song or a song that is a tribute to your guests. Also you could consider:

  • performing a short play based on a fun moment in the graduate's life

  • playing a musical piece

  • Recite a poem that reflects the occasion

  • The family could be comedians and tell the graduate's favorite jokes.

Graduation Party Entertainment - Guests

You may also have a lot of talent among the graduates and the parents. Their talents can be used in a great way to compliment the graduation party entertainment. The talent could be:

  • Musical instrument players in any genre. Someone would play the piano at the food area, there could be a rock band and also chamber music if that suits the party.

  • Entertainers like magicians and ventriloquists

  • Guests with a talent like origami who can give demonstrations

  • A Choir

  • Comedians suitable for the audience of all ages.

  • Artists who can demonstrate drawing and also capture some of the party guests.

  • A sculptor who can create a figure live at the party.

  • Guests with a craft speciality which they can demonstrate at the party

  • Hair stylist

  • Someone who can make up some jokes about the graduate and tell them in a brilliant way

  • A demonstration of memory skills

  • The guests can very much be part of the entertainment. Hand out tambourines, maracas and whistles.

You may find a balancing act or even a local actor whose act fits the graduation party entertainment you require.
