Add sentiment with a unique and memorable venue for your child’s birthday party.  Birthday parties at the Fenton Mansion have received rave reviews from children who are history enthusiasts as well as children who have previously exhibited little interest in history.   Theme selections currently include a Civil War and Victorian Etiquette.  Make your child’s party an upscale event or a casual, fun, and friendly learning experience.

The party includes a sheet cake, souvenir photograph, games, decorations, and favors for ten children.  Your child and their guests must fall within the 6 to 12 age range. The total cost for a party of ten is $150 for members and $200 for non-members. The party lasts for approximately two hours.

Any additional guests will require $15 and the maximum limit for the party is 16 children maximum.  We recommend scheduling parties in advance.  There is a $25 non-refundable deposit, and cancellation notifications must be received within 72 hours in advance.  Please call (716) 664 – 6256 to schedule your child’s party.
