The average Summer BBQ/Pool Party nationwide in 2017 had approximately 28 guests invited and 19 attendees. While the 4th of July is the most popular date to get together during the summer, the last three Saturdays in August are the next most popular days to hold a Summer BBQ/Pool Party. In 2018, those dates (in ascending order of popularity) are predicted to be August 11th, 18th and 25th.

“These 10 U.S. cities know there is no better way to celebrate summer than with the classic BBQ or pool party,” said Victor Cho, Chief Executive Officer of Evite. “Evite’s new text invitations make it easier than ever to throw a party this summer with family and friends.
