Nashville is a city everyone can love. The music, the history, and the Southern charm all come together to create an atmosphere that demands your attention and the options are endless for fun.

That’s why it’s a great place for kids’ birthday parties! But with all those options comes confusion and chaos for the party planner–you!

With us as your guide, you will be well on your way to hosting the perfect Nashville party for your child. Take a look at the options below to begin your party planning journey in Nashville, Tennessee.

The Nashville Zoo and Grassmere

The Nashville Zoo is one of the top attractions in Middle Tennessee. With over 2,285 animals that make up 365 different species, this zoo provides an excellent learning opportunity for kids and people of all ages.

With unique, themed indoor event spaces as well as spacious outdoor settings, it becomes the perfect place for any group gathering, including kids birthday parties!

It even has its own catering department, called Taste, which specializes in accommodating your unique food preferences. (And we all know how kids can make food prep a little tricky.)

Every visit can be complemented with a Wild Encounter Program, which includes animal biofacts, live animal demonstrations, and fun, educational activities for the whole group!

So whether your party wants to roam free among the trails, grab a bite to eat, go on a guided tour, take a ride on the carousel, feed the lorikeets, or pet the goats, there’s much fun to be had for kids’ birthday parties at the Nashville Zoo.

Cheekwood Botanical Garden and Museum of Art

Nestled in Nashville, Tennessee you will find the Cheek estate which houses this 55-acre botanical garden and art museum.

Cheekwood is one of Nashville’s top cultural attractions, with visitors coming to see its 150,000 blooming bulbs in spring time to the one million holiday lights in winter.

Group tours are available for parties for 15 or more and allow attendees to explore Cheekwood on their own or led by an educated staff member. And they have a special place in their hearts for educating young children in a fun, exciting way.

Just keep in mind the grounds are only open Tuesday through Sunday from 9-5pm. So if you’re planning a late birthday party, this may not be the option for you.

Also, any tours need 2-4 weeks of advance notice. So if your party is last minute, you’ll want to look elsewhere for a venue.

Centennial Park

This location is home to a special program called Kidsville, a free, outdoor destination at Musicians Corner for little ones to experience fun, fitness, crafts, and educational Music Meet & Greet guests and activities at the park.

The park also provides visitors with local artisans, food trucks, and a beautiful, scenic location for your enjoyment.

If you’re looking for a more “hands-on” approach to planning your child’s party, consider taking advantage of the space, the diversity, and the beauty Centennial Park offers.

BounceU of Nashville

Nashville Kids BirthdayLast, but surely not least on our list, is BounceU. Some describe it as “the funnest, most happiest private party place in the universe for kids,” and for good reason.

The Nashville location takes private-party planning to a whole new level. With its giant inflatables, kids can go a little wild, make memories, and still be safe and well looked after. That means less stress for parents and party hosts.

BounceU of Nashville has received such awards as “Best Indoor Playground 2008” by the Nashville Scene and was among the top 10 picks for “Best Birthday Party Places” in 2014 by Parent Magazine. It’s no wonder parents and kids alike share a fondness for this venue.

Their staff specializes in kids’ birthday parties, with their Party Pros team who are experts in all they do. Games, food packages, party favors, clean up, and even a “birthday throne” make this a very worthwhile option. All our BounceU’s make it easy to book and even easier to celebrate with their all inclusive kids birthday party packages

In the Spirit of Birthdays

The beauty about hosting a kids birthday party at any of these venues is that they are all fun and safe.

So no matter which you choose, your child will be sure to have a wonderful birthday celebration with friends and family in a safe environment. And that kind of peace of mind is invaluable for you as the party planner.
