Great Places for Kids’ Birthday Parties Around Reston

Margaret’s daughter just celebrated her 5th birthday. That calls for a party, right?!?

We did a lot of research on the many options around Reston to throw a great birthday party that we wanted to share. Here are some local party places and ideas that we discovered.

Chuck E Cheese,

There are several regional locations of this classic birthday party venue. They offer a variety of party packages and can provide everything from fun to food to goody bags.

Create Like Crazy,

Does your child love to do creative things? A paint your own pottery party here might be just perfect. Here you can choose pottery, clay, canvas or mosaic work.

National Zoo,

Birthday parties at the Zoo are very popular, and dates often book up several months in advance. Animals and cake, what could be better?

The Little Gym,

The Little Gym gives your birthday kid (ages 1-12) and their friends the full run of the facility, with instructor-led games, music, and fun LEGO® Juniors or LEGO® DUPLO® building activities.

Build-A-Bear Workshops,

This option wins for the most huggable party favor! Packages include a party leader who will guide the hands-on activities and games. Each guest creates their own furry friend to bring home and love!


Another active option – parties include 90 minutes of climbing with instructors and the necessary equipment. Afterwards, there is time to celebrate in a private party room.

Bowl America,

Bowling parties are great fun and not a lot of work for parents. Birthday party packages cover games and food plus set up and clean up!


Kids and teens love Skyzone. There are lots of options to make your birthday party unique for your needs. An event host works with you to put the perfect celebration together.

American Girl Café,

Is your child an American Girl fan? American Girl Cafes and Bistros offer in-store birthday parties!

Reston YMCA,
The Reston Y offers several party themes. Parties include relay races, musical chairs, and more. Arts & Crafts theme party-goers create a colorful keepsake. There are also themes for science and sports lovers. The staff will work with you to ensure that the age appropriate games chosen are enjoyed by all.

These are just a few great party options we have discovered in and around Reston. Just another reason why we love living and working here!
