Making it easy to schedule things with people around you
with close friends, new friends and everyone in between (without any awkward invitations). No more group texts, chats, emails, waiting for invites or responses. Simplify scheduling.
Break out of a social rut. Book a time to exercise, or post a happy hour, and embrace serendipity. Create your community instead of looking for one.
Whether it's dinner or a garage band performance, it's an easier way to share an event and you can even charge for it. Beyond recovering costs, expand the sharing economy to sharing events.
See events posted by friends and others around you. Book to attend. Once the host accepts, just go.
Post any activity (for free or charge). Then accept booking requests. Get paid upon booking.
Follow friends to see their events and receive notification of Festivities (Festi activities).
Apply to be a beta tester and if you're selected you could receive up to $50. Just go to Contact Us page and let us know you're interested and we will send you the details.
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
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
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
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
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
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
