Marin is full of gorgeous outdoor settings to throw whatever Pinterest-perfect birthday party your heart desires. But… wait! What if planning a “Dress as Your Favorite Non-Violent Superhero” shindig is starting to feel too stressful? And maybe you don’t actually want to schlepp a bunch of homemade felt capes to the park? These places throughout Marin County offer the whole package—set-up, décor, and specialized themes—which means pure fun for them and (hooray!) no stress for you.

Marine Mammal Center

Education meets entertainment at a “Barkday Party” where kiddos not only learn more about marine mammal life (and get to make fish milkshakes, yes, you read that correctly) but where you’re supporting their important work in rescuing and rehabilitating sick and injured marine mammals. The party includes a 2.5 hour room reservation (pre-decorated!), a 1 hour educational program, a birthday cake (for 15) and small party favors. Typically offered on Saturday mornings and afternoons.
