Birthday Parties

If you’re searching for a way to celebrate your child’s birthday, Purina Farms would love to host your party. All parties will take place in a 40x80 tented area on concrete in the Main Show Field near the West Barn. On occasion, the party may be moved up to a 30x30 outdoor hospitality tent near the Purina Farms gift shop. All parties must take place on Saturday or Sunday between 10AM and 2PM.

Our parties include all of these features:

  • Box lunches with a choice of either corn dog or chicken nuggets along with chips, dessert and a 12 oz. soda or milk carton
  • Cupcakes decorated with pictures of some of the barnyard and domestic animals that call Purina Farms home
  • 20% off a gift from the Purina Farms gift shop for every child at the party
  • A group wagon ride around the property and up-close-and-personal photo opportunities with some of our animals
  • The birthday boy or girl is acknowledged during the Pro Plan Performance Team Dog Show and he or she can participate in a photo opportunity with the trainers. (Note: On certain occasions, at the trainers' discretion, the birthday boy or girl could have a volunteer role in the show.)
  • A Purina Farms tour guide who will periodically check on the party and reserve great seats for the group at the Pro Plan Performance Team Dog Show
  • Printed Purina Farms invitations to send to friends and family

NOTE: Box lunches and cupcakes must be picked up by a member of the party at the Purina Farms Concession stand. They will not be delivered to the party. To reserve your birthday party and ask about rates, call (314) 982-3232. Click here for the birthday party flyer!
