You might be making it a bit too complicated– with such a large group of people and Canada Day making things tricky, I think a dinner out at a casual restaurant is your best bet. Hopefully your friends are friendly enough to be able to chat with each other without an activity to facilitate the conversation.

Are you in Calgary? Depending on where you are, there are escape rooms that you can do wtih that many people. My company is doing ‘the locked room’ and there are 2 rooms that are larger, one is up to 8, one is up to 10.

Right now I’m super envious. At a minimum my rehearsal dinner is including 40 (15 of which are children).

Check out local activites on Groupon. I don’t know where you live, what your friends like or your budget so I really cannot venture a suggestion.

I actually have no idea, I don’t want to hang out with my co-workers in an enclosed space for an hour hahaha. SO it could be fun, might not.

I think bowling would be fun. Also agree iwth PP about groupon. You could do a paintnite ($25 with the coupon I think). Do you have trampoline parks? They are SO FUN (so long as no ones pregnant).

naturalflight:  Don’t write off escape rooms yet, we booked one through work and had more than 8 people in one room. Otherwise, could you book a group cooking class or something similar? That way food is covered in addition to an activity to bring everyone together.

Maybe you could do a nice relaxed bruch or afternoon tea at home? It wouldnt have to be too long, just enough for everyone to get comfortable around each other. The weather wouldn’t matter because you could have it outside if it was good weather or move it inside if it wasn’t. It’s an inexpensive option and you don’t have to worry about certain places being open. And hey, if it got too awkward, you could just chuck on a movie? 

Oh, you mentioned an idea about bowling? Maybe set up your own little bowling ally at home? Obviously, it would be pretty childlike (not as in the idea of it but it would most likely composed of plastic bowling balls and pins) but it might just make it cute and funny and ease any awkwardness as people could bond over the humour of an awkward makeshift bowling ally in your backyard/loungeroom.
