Similar to your holiday parties and other get-togethers that you’ve planned over the last year, the Super Bowl parties will need to be a little different as we continue to social distance and follow local gathering guidelines. Great news – if you’re reading this – you’ve probably got an amazing outdoor space to use for your party this year.
Here are some outdoor Super Bowl Party ideas to safely gather with friends and family and cheer on your favorite team. Or maybe just enjoy the commercials and halftime show.
Of course, the most important thing will be streaming the game, either with a projector or moving a big television out to the patio. Make sure to do a test run a day or two before the big game, setting up speakers if necessary and making sure everything is connected and ready to go. You don’t want any hiccups on game day, nothing can ruin a Super Bowl party faster than technical difficulties.
When you’re planning the snacks and appetizers, try to avoid serving “big dish” foods, dishes that encourage lots of hands in the food and people clustered around a big bowl are not what we’re going for at this year’s Super Bowl.

Seating is also important, to make sure you can all see the game but are also seated the appropriate distance apart. This might take a little rearranging of your patio furniture, to make sure everyone is comfortable with a great view of the game. If the weather is going to be a little cool, grab some extra blankets to make it cozy when game time rolls around.
These are some simple outdoor Super Bowl Party ideas that will make this year’s party fun, albeit different. Enjoy the game and the time with friends and family!
