One of the best things about Give Kids The World Village is that the fun never stops. Every night, we hold a different celebration – from trick or treating, to dancing with pirates and princesses – there’s something for everyone visiting the Village.
Whether you’re planning your wish trip or your volunteer shift, check out the event details below to find your favorites:
Ms. Merry’s Tea Party
Who wouldn’t enjoy tea and snacks with princesses and Mayor Clayton’s bunny bride Ms. Merry. This charming event is so much fun for kids, parents and volunteers, too.
The World’s Largest Candy Land Party
The world’s largest Candy Land game at Matthew’s Boundless Playground is a sweet treat for the whole family! On Sundays, families enjoy lots of candy, prizes, fun and games with Ms. Merry, Mayor Clayton, Princess Lolly and so many more.
For those looking to kick back and relax, Julie’s Safari Theater plays a great movie each night – including those that are still in theaters. So, grab some popcorn, give your feet a rest and enjoy time at the theater.
Mayor Clayton’s Hare-Raising Halloween Party
If you’ll be at the Village on a Monday night, don’t forget your costume! It’s our Hare-Raising Halloween party and it’s filled with lots of fun. Kids and families can go trick-or-treating, take pictures with characters, get their face painted and more.
Mayor Clayton’s Birthday Party
Tuesday is the night that families join Ms. Merry and friends for Mayor Clayton’s birthday! There’s cupcakes, music, games like Pass the Carrot, dancing and more – but shh! It’s a surprise.
If you have a 13-17-year-old, Teen Night is for them. This is their chance to make new friends and enjoy exciting games like Archery Tag, video games, and virtual reality.
Horseback Riding at Keaton’s Korral
Saddle up, every Wednesday and Saturday morning kids can ride horses around Keaton’s Korral.
One wish mom said “One of my daughter’s dreams has always been to ride a horse. It made me quite emotional to see her living her dream, riding around with the wonderful volunteers assisting her. It was definitely one of the highlights of her wish trip.”
Every Wednesday, kids take the Hoppening Place stage to show off their incredible talents. You’ll see singing, dancing, hula hooping and more. Kids can sign up in the Towne Hall lobby. The smiles and fun you’ll witness at this event easily makes it a Village favorite.
Every Thursday, the Village turns into a Winter Wonderland as Santa arrives from the North Pole. It’s a night of gifts, arts and crafts, games and there’s even some snow! Families can hang out with friends like Murphy the Gingerbread Man, Mayor Clayton and Ms. Merry and then be part of a Winter Wonderland parade!
Once Upon a Village
Pirates, princesses, mermaids, knights and more flock to the Park of Dreams Pool every Friday for our Once Upon a Village celebration. You’ll dance and play and transform into a storybook character yourself.
Big Splash Bash
Have some fun in the sun during our Big Splash Bash on Saturday mornings. You might get caught in a game of Musical Hoops and end up with a pie in the face, or you could be the winner of an exciting water balloon toss.
