March Madness Party Ideas
We’re huge basketball fans. And why not? It’s a lot of fun to see the teams battling it out on the court. But when March Madness rolls around every year, a whole new kind of competition takes place in our house.
Not only do we fill out our March Madness brackets, but we also use these entertaining printable games and activities to add even more fun and games to the house.
Call it a bit of “madness” taking over, but we really love to bring some friendly competition into the house. And since it can take a long time to get to the Final Four during March Madness, why not have some other fun games sprinkled in as well?
Why It Works
- This March Madness printable set gets everyone excited about the tournament!
- Even those who don’t care about basketball can join in on this printable fun.
- There are so many entertaining games and activities to choose from that it makes it easy and engaging to want to be a part of.
Creative Ways to Use These Printables
- Have your own family March Madness tournament – Who says that the basketball players get to have all the fun? While they’re on the TV showing off their skills, use these March Madness party games as a way to have your own tournament. Make a winner for each game and enjoy!
- Create a fun trophy – Everyone wants a medal, right? Have everyone done their best at the games and then tally up who won! Whoever gets the most correct or has the most points, wins the March Madness trophy!
- Have the tie breaker be the REAL March Madness bracket – Even though you might not be into the bracket, everyone still needs to fill one out. Because as we all know, there’s a reason that it’s called “madness”. Teams come out of nowhere to work their way up the bracket, sometimes knocking out some of the biggest teams! Use the brackets in this packet of games as a true tie breaker in your own house.
- Bingo Markers
- Snacks (because everyone always needs snacks!)
How It Works
To get started, all you have to do is print off the packet of printables. The only thing that needs to be done ahead of time is to fill out the bracket and choose the teams. This needs to be done BEFORE the tournament starts so that there are no cheating or picking teams after they’ve already played! (No stacking the bracket here – only guesses will work!)
This March Madness printable packet includes a great selection of games and activities that can entertain your friends and family for hours! Here’s what you get:

How To Host a March Madness Party
Yes, it is free to download and print any printable from our site. Just know this is for personal use only. You can not sell these printables as your own.
Think of having a party like a tailgate. The more finger foods, the better. If you serve alcohol, have choices for the guests and then non-alcoholic beverages for those that don’t drink. I also think that having a dessert table is great for the kids as well as the adults. The more fun and snacks, the better.
March Madness is already the theme, so just be sure to have everyone wear their favorite team’s colors or jerseys to the party! This is the perfect way to get everyone in the mood and ready to rumble! (in a friendly way!)
I totally get it. March Madness goes on for several days! But the closer that it gets to the big game, the more that people are excited and pumped. For this reason, having parties for the Elite Eight, the Final Four, and the Championship game are going to be the best times to throw a party – and have these printables on hand, too! These make March Madness parties the best!
