“After hosting nearly a million birthday parties through the years, there was an incredible opportunity to take all that our team members have experienced and turn it into new packages we know our guests will love,” said Sarah Beddoe, Chief Brand Officer, Main Event. “With five epic new birthday party packages, families have more freedom than ever to customize the right party that works for them and turn things over to our experienced birthday party enthusiasts to make sure our guests have the most memorable birthday ever.”

To recognize the new lineup of birthday parties, Main Event will commit $10* from every birthday party package booked online or in-center between now and the end of the February to The Birthday Party Project. The Birthday Party Project, founded in 2012, was created to bring joy to kids living in homeless or transitional home facilities through the power of birthday parties. Main Event hosts quarterly celebrations for the children in partnership with the organization.

Guests can enjoy the convenience and flexibility of booking parties online or at their favorite Main Event center. To book online, visit
