How it works

Party guests arrive at the Visitor's Centre, where they will meet their designated Birthday Party Interpreter. Your designated interpreter will guide you through the party activities and your tour of Bellevue House. Before leaving the Visitor's Centre, guests are given a chance to watch a short video introducing the life and times of Sir John A. Macdonald, and look at the exhibit area.

The main part of the party takes place on the restored grounds, where guests will have a chance to choose from several fun activities, and tour the historic house and kitchen garden. Some activities include : Victorian games; harvesting produce from the garden; using period tools; quill penning; dress-up and a treasure hunt. Your Birthday Party Interpreter will help you plan the party and include your child's favourites!

Space is available for birthday cake and presents. You provide the cake, we'll provide the dishes and take care of the mess!
