Holding a child's birthday party at Oakland's Children's Fairyland can be as easy as you want it to be. There are two flavors of parties available at this venue.
Do it yourself.
The Teddy Bear Picnic Grove is a wide open field where you can grab a picnic table or bring your own. Space is available first come, first serve. Admission to the park gives you access to this area, so the cost is the same as any visit to the park with any size group. You can bring decorations, but no pinatas out of concern for the animals in the area who may encouter candy wrappers or tissue paper.
From the Fairyland website:
Between November and March you may also rent the Cinderella Party Area or the Japanese Tea Garden for your party. The fee for each area just $40 per hour. Contact the Program Supervisor to reserve a party area at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Treat your guests to their entrance fees more economically by buying a One Day Group Pass which admits 10 people for $70.
Set up your party with the Children's Fairyland staff and get a package deal that includes a special gated party area, cupcakes, fruit punch and ice cream, t-shirt and crown for the birthday child, and a place setting for each guest (plate, napkin, cup and hat). The cost of the package is $20 per child with a 10-child minimum. It includes total admission to the park for your guests.
What if I want to serve protein to my guests? Further catering is available from their menu, ie corn dogs, deli tray, and even PB&J, for additional charges, and you can bring any of your own food as long as you avoid glass containers.
Both party styles include hours of fun on unlimited rides at the park. Get all your questions answered here.
