Celebrating at the Family Interactive Gallery (FIG)

A birthday party at the FIG is a great way to celebrate your child’s big day. It’s fun for the kids and easy on you!

We currently offer four party themes making it easy to find the perfect birthday package for your child. All parties include a hands-on, creative art activity guided by a FIG party host in a reserved party area just for you. At the FIG, we know birthdays are an important part of your child’s life, and we hope to help make the day memorable for your child.
