Eat, drink, talk.
And the word you want here is "parties," not "party's."

Same as any other adult social gathering. Meet and mingle with the other guests while enjoying the refreshments. If you're asking what kind of party is appropriate, that is up to the people arranging the party. It could be a intimate party for the two sets of parents to meet each other, to perhaps have some serious discussion about the marriage, the wedding. It could be a huge affair where family and friends are brought together to hear and/or celebrate news of the engagement. Or anything in between. It can be an elaborate dinner party with 9 courses. Or a casual gathering for beer & pizza, for a grill out. It can be a tea or a cocktail party or whatever.

What they do at any party. It's up to the hosts.

It is a time for friends and family of the groom to meet and socialize with the brides friends and family.
It is usually appetizers and drinks party.
You can have a buffet or a backyard bar b q.
There are no gifts. This is not a gift giving event.

Have you been invited to one?
If so, they obviously like to have parties, because engagement parties are not at all necessary. It's often a cocktail party sort of affair.
They are NOT a gift giving occasion, but if you have reason to want to bring a gift, the best (and only one) I would suggest would be a copy of Emily Post's Etiquette, or Emily Post's Wedding Etiquette- but that would be if you were a close friend. Otherwise, nothing.
It's really an excuse to have a party to celebrate the couple's recent agreement to marry. No one should be expecting to be named bridesmaid, Best Man, or anything else- that would be premature.
If done right, the "engagement party" would be a small dinner involving both families or even just the parents, to allow them to meet. But these days, too many people are addicted to Pinterest and use every excuse to have a do. That's all. Nothing special happens.
