Children with disabilities are often not invited to birthday parties and may not have friends to enjoy birthday celebrations with. Additionally, the cost of a large party at various locations throughout the community can be cost prohibitive for many families. This is why every month we throw a festive birthday party for our Friendship Circle Friends!
Birthday Circle Events are specifically done in various locations throughout the city with different activities and opportunities for everyone to enjoy. Each event is completely free and has birthday bags, snacks, and cupcakes to celebrate all birthdays during that month.
Siblings of our kids with disabilities and our teen friends are invited to join as they too are part of our FCVA family.
At each Birthday Circe, we have a Sensory quiet zone. We understand that the crowd and loud noises can be overwhelming sometimes, we provide a safe space of all Friendship participants to color and do other quiet activities.
Our Birthday Circle Events have included:
The Science Museum of Virginia, Loving Acres Farm Sanctuary, Mad Science, Trampoline Parks, Adaptive Horseback Riding, SPCA, Children’s Museum & more!
If you have attended at least one Friendship Circle event, but have not yet registered with us, please do so before attending your next event to ensure we can provide a proper match and a great experience!
