A better way to get together

A social reservation system

Book or host any activity at any time, with an option to add payment.

From parties, work lunches, performances to exercise, we make getting together faster and easier. 

Easy access to events with people you like. 

No more group chats, scheduling, exchanging contacts, awkward invitations, waiting for responses, calendar conflicts or asking people to pay.   

How it works

1. Book to go

See activities posted by friends and others around you. If you can see it, you can book it. Once your request is accepted, just go. 

2. Post an event

Create any event. Control who can see it and control who attends. Close your event at anytime. Share costs if you want. Finally a tactful way for others to pitch in without having to ask!

3. Follow friends

The more friends you follow, the more events you can see. Festi let's you be more social with less commitment! If you change your mind, just cancel. If you're hosting, you can reschedule before anyone books. 

Getting together shouldn't be so hard.

See who's doing what, in a convenient way. Festi takes the pressure off whether it's a bike ride, study group, dinner fundraiser, garage band performance or a raging party. Like your personal assistant, Festi finds out who’s free, collects money, handles any cancellations and refunds. 

 If you want to get together, we'll make it happen 

in a couple of minutes or less. 

Let Festi do all the work.

Sit back.  We will ... 

  • let you know who wants to get together.
  • keep track of where you're going, and what you're hosting.
  • explore sharing events as the new sharing economy. 

Festi creates your personal community, so that you have more options to hang out with more people, faster and easier.

Here's what people are saying about Festi

Like Eventbrite for parties, except I choose who can come.

I can post my own party and charge for it.  Not exactly like Eventbrite, only my friends see my event (but I think I can post to the public too)- and accept each booking. I can now afford a lobster fest. I much rather have $ to buy groceries, set my own menu, than deal with people bringing things. I love it. -Lisa

Cool way to find out who is free.

I made dinner reservations for 6 at a new restaurant I wanted to try. I posted my reservation on Festi. My friends who were free booked. Once I accepted everyone I wanted, I closed the event as full. It's kind of a genius way of getting all 6 spots filled with friends. I didn't get any booking requests from any strangers but I would have entertained the idea.-Joe

Getting paid is nice. Not having to ask, even nicer.

Even with Venmo, I still have to ask for people to pay me and that's a pain. I posted- "ordering pizza for dinner who's in". It's nice to know who's committed so I know how much to order. The app handled the money. I just had to accept people's booking requests. That part was kind of fun. -Christine

To schedule without scheduling.

I was meaning to get together with my friend for a long time but never got around to texting her. I saw her posting for lunch and I happen to be free that day so I just booked. It was so much easier than trying to schedule. I like anything that saves me time. -Jen

Change of plans.

I love the flexibility. I posted a bike ride Sat. and then, the next day got an invitation to go to a game at the same time (friend had an extra tix). Since no one booked my bike ride yet, I just changed the time. It was so easy.  A posting is so much less commitment than an invitation. Can't believe no one thought of this earlier. -Mike

Great for a class.

I booked a great cooking class and we never had to discuss payment. Just like Uber, payment is handled through the app. I just showed up. The automatic calendaring and directions came in handy. You don't get directions until after your booking is accepted. -Pat
