Mobile-Brings the Party to You!

Animals/Farms

Do you have an animal or outdoor enthusiast in your household? One of these locations might just make the perfect birthday party venue! Whether it’s lions, tigers, and bears (oh my!) at the Knoxville Zoo or your princess’ very own Pony Party, Knoxville has enough animal-friendly locations to take your kids on their very own safari!

Deep Well Farm

Friendly Farm

Ijams Nature Center

Zoo Knoxville

Little Ponderosa Zoo & Rescue

RiverView Family Farm

Sonny Brooke Stables

Pony Party


Arcades, Bowling, Laser Tag, Paintball and Putt-Putt

Birthdays are all fun and games, no really. ALL fun and games! So why not take the work out of planning that fun and those games and have your child’s birthday at one of these awesome locations? Whether it’s laser tag, putt-putt or paintball, your kid is going to be a classroom hit when they invite their friends!

Chuck E. Cheese – games/arcade

Farragut Putt-Putt Golf & Games – putt-putt, batting cages and games/arcade

Gatti’s Pizza (multiple locations) – games/arcade

LaserQuest

Sir Goony’s – putt-putt, splash zone, paintball, and go-karts

Smoky Mountain Paintball

Strike & Spare Bowling (multiple locations)


Art

If you have a mini Jackson Pollock at home, you might want to consider one of these when choosing the perfect studio for your artist. Pottery. Check. Painting. Check. Eating glue sticks. Double check!

JoAnn Fabric & Craft Stores

Liza Moz’ Pottery

Marble City Glassworks

Painting with a Twist

Unique Technique Painting Parties


Food and Cooking

And if you want to try to keep your kid away from eating glue sticks (see Art above), maybe cupcakes would be more your preference. And let’s face it, what mother wouldn’t be all about a chocolate factory or a cupcake house for their kid’s next birthday. Sign me up!

Lil Swee-tea Party

Menchie’s (multiple locations)

Schakolad Chocolate Factory

The Cutting Edge


Museums

Some kids just aren’t into all the action and adventure and prefer to have their nose in a book (can I get some pointers?). Maybe you should consider having their next birthday at one of Knoxville’s great museums.

American Museum of Science & Energy

Children’s Museum of Oak Ridge

The Muse


Parks

If you have a child that’s about to turn one or two, sometimes a park is just the most practical option. After all, they aren’t likely to remember ponies or skee-ball, but you will remember picking the perfect theme and your blank pavilion canvas to decorate as you see fit!  (Ahem, you’re welcome!)

Knoxville Parks and Recreation

Town of Farragut Pavilion Rentals

World’s Fair Park


Pools

Is there anything better than a pool party? (Maybe if said pool was filled with ice cream and chocolate syrup, but I digress.) If you are trying to decide where to have a birthday party, pools are always a safe bet for hours of fun, and you will thank yourself later when they crash and burn for bedtime.

Ed Cothren Pool (outdoor)

Elmer Brine Pool (indoor)

Inskip Pool (outdoor)

Wilderness at the Smokies

YMCA (multiple locations)


Sports/Gymnastics/Dancing/Inflatables

If you have a Tasmanian devil at home, like me, this should be your go-to list for birthday party venues. Dancing, running, tumbling, bouncing, skating—Knoxville has so many great options for an active indoor birthday party. Just remember to invite me…I mean, us.
