Both templates use a photo as the background but have two different approaches to match it with the text content. While the first one applies a black color overlay over the image, the second one uses the image as is and puts the text in text boxes instead.

Awareness event flyer templates
For events that promote causes, awareness flyers work best. Depending on the type of event, you might want to color code your flyer accordingly — for example, this breast cancer awareness event flyer uses shades of pink as that’s the color associated with the movement:
Make sure to also add a call-to-action (CTA) as a sentence (like the template above) or as a separate block at the bottom of the flyer, like this free flyer template about American Heart Month:
Speaking of health events…
Healthcare event flyer templates
Flyers are a great way to help you promote your health and wellness events. Let’s take a look at this flyer example:
This healthcare flyer advertises a medical fair by Grand River Healthcare Inc. Notice how the designer has grouped different healthcare icons to make the shape of a heart — representing the concept of health.
A cross (also a health symbol) takes up the white space in the middle of the heart (which is, conveniently, also the center of the flyer) and right here we have the company name! Pretty smart, huh?
One more flyer design tip I’d l like to point out: the designer takes the two colors that stand out from the icon story — red and blue — and applies those to the other elements of the design. This makes the flyer appear cohesive in colors as a whole.
Healthcare event flyers tend to adopt shades of red as their main colors. Case in point:
If you like the layout of this flyer and would like to use it for non-healthcare events — that’s totally fine! Apply your brand colors to your flyer design in one click with My Brand Kit:

Non-profit event flyer templates
Need to recruit volunteers? With its light-hearted, inviting, and inspiring design, this template is great for promoting your upcoming volunteer registration event:
If you’re planning on hosting a fund-raising event instead — no need to fret. May I present to you two event flyers for fundraisers — each taking a different approach:
For a more light-hearted and fun event, the first one is perfect. The second one is there for you if your upcoming event is more on the professional side.
Flyer templates for career fairs
Whether your company is hosting a job expo to attract new hires, or whether you’re hosting a career fair for college students — there’s a Venngage flyer for you. Exhibit A:
And exhibit B:
Notice how the second flyer uses icons instead of images for a more light-hearted tone — which is perfect for a college career fair.
Event flyer templates for parties
If you want to promote a party, vibrant colors can work best for your flyer! Case in point:
You can also try using images simulating the concept of a party — like this one with bokeh:
Also, both templates’ motifs fit the holiday party they are designed for not just because of the imagery they use, but also through the feel they give off. The Halloween template’s cartoonish nature is perfect for a night about all things strange, while the Christmas one has a high-energy party kind of vibe.
Icons are also great visuals you can add to your event flyer. Take this Valentine’s party flyer for example:
Festival flyer templates
This template is great not just because of its colors and aesthetics, but also because it gives a clear impression of the vibe the festival will have. Its imagery of all things autumn tells that the festival is going to be an enjoyable yet chill event, perfect for the season.
For a different design take, see this event flyer template which primarily uses icons to convey the festivity:
FAQs about event flyers
Why do you need an event flyer?
A good ol’ way to promote events, event flyers attract potential attendees with eye-catching designs.
Apart from promoting the event, flyers are also a good way to promote your brand — through the brand colors, fonts and logos you use.
Lastly, an event flyer can promote your event offline. While social media undoubtedly has much reach, there is still a considerably sized target audience an online campaign does not get to. For that, an event flyer is perfect.
How do I come up with an event flyer design?
While there are no set rules on how your flyer should look like, there are some things you must consider before even creating one.
First is the event itself. Are you hosting a summer barbecue in the park, or a winter gala? What atmosphere do you want to create? Are there specific aspects of your event that people should focus on? All of these things will determine the imagery, colors, and content the flyer will have.
Second is the theme and feel of the event. This will dictate color choices and what emotions you want your flyer to convey. Remember, two similar events can have a different intended theme and feel from one another, so it’s important to sort that out first.
Last is what the content of the flyer will be. What is the message you’re trying to convey? Is the flyer about donating goods to charity? Is it promoting a product or service? Or is it just an invitation? Answering questions like this will guide you on the content of the flyer.
Ultimately, how can you combine all these elements to reflect your company’s brand? Pay attention to places you can use your company’s brand colors, and how you can adapt the flyer’s content to reflect your brand’s tone of voice.
How do I choose colors for my event flyer design?
Choosing colors for your flyer shares certain similarities with choosing a design. Much like the latter, the theme and feel of the event should inform you of what colors to use. For a Valentine’s flyer like this one, shades of pinks and reds are perfect as they evoke a feeling of passion and romance:
On the other hand, if you’re hosting a business conference, maybe opt for neutral or professional colors like black, white, silver or blue:
It’s also important to consider the different contexts in which people will view your flyer when choosing colors. When designing for print, ensure that the color combinations you choose for your flyers are complementary and don’t look weird or dissonant when combined with one another. If you’re designing for digital viewing, choose colors that go well with each other and have a high enough contrast between them to ensure readability.
How do I make my own event flyer backgrounds?
While there are sites that allow you to download free event flyer templates, sometimes it’s okay to make your own background for your designs.
The event itself can make a good flyer background. You can use those photos as is, or apply some color overlay to make the text stand out from the background.
If you don’t have photos of your event — no worries. Venngage provides 3+ million stock images to help you customize your flyers easily.
