What is a House Party?

House Party lets people who really love something host a special event featuring a fun, free, exclusive experience sponsored by the world's leading brands.

Cool people sharing cool stuff. A House Party is thousands of parties happening across the country on a single day, hosted by people just like you. Each event is sponsored by a leading brand and focuses on something cool–like a new product, hit TV show, or great cause–that the sponsor wants its best fans to experience firsthand and share with their friends. (Check out some of our recent events.)
You host. Everyone wins. House Party lets you share the stuff you like with the people you like, through a fantastic, free party experience. What's the catch? There is none: Our partners understand that if they share something good with the right people in a fun way, we'll all help spread the word.

What's inside the party packs?

Each event has a unique Party Pack filled with all kinds of free stuff to make your party a success. We've thrown all kinds of events: TV Viewing, Wine & Chocolate Pairing, Kid-centric, you name it.

How do I join and become a Host?

It's as easy as 1 — 2 — 3


    Sign up to be among the first to learn of new host opportunities.
    (As new parties are launched, you'll get an email announcement linking to the online application)

    When a new event is open, you'll be invited via email to come back to the site to complete a host application.
    (Thousands apply, and space is often limited. Your application will be reviewed and hosts will be selected and notified)
  3. PARTY ON!

    If chosen as a host, you'll get an email confirmation walking you through the steps of setting up your party site.
    (There, you'll send email invitations to your guests, manage your RSVP's, upload photos and videos, join the national event party blog, and gain access to great party resources.)
