Where to have a Birthday Party in Pueblo

Birthday Party In Pueblo

Where’s a good place to have my child’s birthday party?

This is overwhelmingly the most popular question we get asked on our Facebook page! So we’ve decided to go ahead and compile a list of places to have your kiddos birthday! (This list is in no particular order – just simply places we know of that host amazing kids birthday parties in Pueblo Colorado!)

Birthday Parties for Creative Kids

Are your kid’s creative? The SAGE Art Academy is a fantastic (and affordable) place to host a birthday party for your little ones! (And you can bring in your own food and drink – which is something I always look into when I’m hosting a birthday party!)

Along the same creative lines? The Buell Children’s Museum at the Sangre de Cristo Arts Center is another favorite place for kiddos birthday parties! Admission to the museum for the full day, an hour in the cafe with a catered lunch? What more could your crazy creative kid ask for?

What about a kiddo who’s always performing magic tricks? Mr. E and the Party People have a few great Party Packages that include magic shows as the main entertainment!

One of my favorite birthday parties we attended this summer was at the Fire Playce! For $10 per kiddo you have a built in party favor as they paint their own creation! The ladies at the Fire Playce are great hostesses, and you can bring in your own food and drink too!

Birthday Parties for Athletic Kids

Do you have a kid who is high energy? Super Athletic? On the move all the time? There’s quite a few places for birthday parties along these lines!

Skate City has several party options available! (And doesn’t every parent who grew up in the 1980′s and early 90′s have fond memories of Roller Skating Parties??) With a reserved party you can bring in your own cake and ice cream – but they also have the snack bar available!

Another great option is the Pueblo Ice Arena! You can bring in your own food and drink, and it’s a great way to tire out the kiddos and have a lot of fun! Parties are available during all public skate sessions!

One of the most fun birthday parties my kiddo has ever been invited to was at the Stuntz Academy! They open their facility and it’s a ton of fun for all ages!

Great Locations for Pueblo Birthday Parties

Who doesn’t love a birthday party at the Pueblo Zoo? The zoo has a variety of options for your party and opens their party room for your celebration! (And who doesn’t love to celebrate with the adorable otters or the Lions?)

You can reserve a shelter with Pueblo Parks and Rec for Free! (With the exception of the main pavillion at City park – near the zoo, that one has a small fee!)  Bonus: During the Summer, the City Park Rides make a cheap addition to the fun!

The Pueblo YMCA offers a variety of options for birthday parties, including use of their climbing wall, or bouncy houses in the gym! They have great options for both members and non-members!

The Pueblo Nature Center also has some great locations (with great scenery) available for your party too!

We can’t possibly list all the places in Pueblo that offer birthday parties, but these are some of our favorites! If you have a great location that’s not listed here? Please contact us or send us a Facebook message!

With so many fresh vegetables in our gardens lately I was excited to see a new recipe on eggplant pasta.  I have least 6 plants with eggplants all most large enough to use in our garden right now.  In the past I have only used our eggplant to make eggplant parmesan, so I’m really excited to try something new with it.
