Earlier this year, we launched the Yelp Families program across the Dallas metro. This year-long campaign is focused on bringing local Yelpers the best of family-friendly businesses, festivals and local events. A community within the wider community, Yelp Families aims to promote inclusive events that allow Yelp users and Elites alike to make the most of their experiences with great local businesses.
Dallas first launched this celebration with over 600 Yelp Family members and 50 local businesses representing the entire metro! With an official launch party, an exclusive North Texas Irish Fest VIP experience, and several contest giveaways, the last several months have been jam-packed with connections between great local businesses and the vibrant Greater Dallas Yelp community!
And since, we’ve continued the fun with a Taste Addison 2019 partnership, and two engaging panel events at Her HQ, a premier female-focused community and experiential workspace in Dallas.
Taste Addison is one of the biggest Spring festivals of the year and Yelp Families especially got in on the fun with an exclusive VIP experience. With complimentary admission for over fifty families, a special hands-on Yelp craft activation, a custom photo scavenger hunt with fun prizes for participants!
And in June, we launched a two-part panel series at Her HQ, a co-working space where women gain access to fresh, consistent programming centered on health & wellness, creative exploration and career advancement. Their mission is the betterment of women through intentional community and shared experiences.
And that rang particularly true with our Yelp Families Mommy Meetup. With a panel lineup of local influencers including Britany Cervantes (The DFW Parent Guide), Noelle Digiovanni (Uptown Mom Dallas); Tola Adeotia (A lot. Of. Tola), and Roselle Pliago (In_DFW_Family), and local bites courtesy of Chef Amber’s Le Rouge Cuisine, this was a unique event for the books! No questions were off limits and intimate discussions centered around family life in Dallas were the highlight of the night!
We concluded the season with a Yelp Families Wine and Learn event featuring the Financial Gym, a financial planning company that takes a fitness-inspired approach to finances. Yelp Families took part in wine tasting, charcuterie spreads, and an engaging training on everything from family planning to college savings to retirements, home buying and vacations!
Throughout the year, keep your eyes peeled for official Yelp Families events, ticket giveaways and discounts, and special experiences that are a perfect fit for your next family outing. Make sure you subscribe to Yelp emails and also follow our instagram for monthly updates: @YelpDallas.
Cheers and SYOY!
