Birthday Party Ideas for Babies and Toddlers in Spartanburg, SC

Of course, how big of a party you want to throw for your baby’s birthday is a personal choice. Many families choose to celebrate the first birthday at home with just family. Other parents want to have a big party that is fun for everyone – older siblings included. If you are looking for memorable birthday party options for babies right here in Spartanburg, you’ve come to the right place.

Inflatable Fun in Your Backyard

There are several companies near Spartanburg that rent inflatables, such as bounce houses. Children, even babies, love playing in bounce houses! Adding an inflatable to the backyard birthday party is a perfect choice for a first birthday. Just make sure the inflatable is properly secured before allowing any children to play.

Picnic at the Park

If you would rather head outside of your house, consider celebrating at one of Spartanburg’s Parks. Many of the local parks, such as Anchor Park at Lake Bowen, have covered picnic areas that you can rent and reserve. Other parks offer picnic tables on a first-come basis. Choose your child’s favorite playground, invite their friends, and serve goldfish, cupcakes, and juice boxes.

Celebrate with the Animals

You can take the short drive to Greenville Zoo and celebrate your child’s birthday surrounded by their favorite animals. Their birthday parties are hosted in a covered picnic area and include a range of activities (including rubbing elbows with some animals)!


A unique option for a second birthday (or older) is having the TUMBLEBUS of Spartanburg come to your house. This is a climate-controlled bus filled with tumbling mats and fun activities led by certified instructors.

Stroll Through Hatcher Garden

Hatcher Garden and Woodland Preserve is beautiful all year long, and children love the chance to explore nature up close. With several different seating areas and picnic tables, you can find the ideal spot to sing “Happy Birthday” to your baby.

Stay Energized at YMCA Kindergym

The Middle Tyger YMCA offers Kindergym parties that are a blast for little ones! There is music, a teacher for the “class,” and tons of time running, jumping, and tumbling. Plus, they have a separate room where you can enjoy cake and open presents. Disclaimer: They are currently only allowing party reservations for YMCA of Greater Spartanburg Members at this time.

Get Wet in the Summer at Shipwreck Cove

If your baby has a summer birthday, consider celebrating at Shipwreck Cove. They offer a Pirates Party for up to 12 kids and 2 adults ($220) and up to 20 kids and 2 adults ($350). Children will get to splash around and enjoy the birthday festivities.

Let Everyone Scream for Ice Cream at Hub City Scoops

If your little one loves ice cream, Hub City Scoops has a designated party space and party packages. This is a great option for families looking for a party that does not include lunch or dinner.

Bounce at Pump It Up

Pump It Up is a popular birthday party venue in town that works well for little ones (once they can climb on the inflatables). When you book a party at Pump It Up, your party has the inflatable area to themselves and then will move into a separate room for food and presents.
