Birthday Parties


Birthday venue spaces are FULLY BOOKED until the end of September.

Please check back in August for additional information on fall/winter birthdays. Birthday inquiries received will not be responded to until August. Thank you for your understanding!

Calling all party animals! Birthday parties at Stone Zoo and Franklin Park Zoo are available year-round, rain or shine! For a wild experience, you and your guests can enjoy all-day admission to the Zoo, a private venue, the assistance of a birthday liaison, an animal encounter, a face painter or caricature artist, and more!

At Stone Zoo, birthday parties are held all year in the Maple Glen Tent, an all-season tent that is heated during the cooler months. At Franklin Park Zoo, birthday parties can be held in a tented venue or indoor space between May 1 and October 30. Between November 1 and April 30, birthday parties are held indoors at Franklin Park Zoo. 

Our birthday parties book up fast and are available on a first come, first served basis. We strongly recommend booking three months in advance to secure your date, especially during the busy spring and summer months. Parties must be booked a minimum of three weeks in advance and are subject to availability.
