Birthday Parties at Clark's Elioak Farm
Birthday parties are an important part of our business and thousands of children have celebrated with us over the years. The Clark family invites you to celebrate your child's birthday or other special events at our beautiful petting farm in the heart of Howard County. With picnic tables under our lovely trees and rolling hillsides to enjoy, we will make your visit to our petting farm a memorable one.
All of our Children's Parties include:
Our party staff will greet you when you arrive and show you to your party area. You will be able to enjoy your separate picnic area, play in the play areas and on our slides, explore the Fairy Forest and the Enchanted Forest attractions and maze while you are at the farm. As part of your party we will take the whole group together on a hay wagon ride and on a tour of the petting farm animals (Or if you would prefer, you can tour the animals on your own at your own pace and in smaller groups. It's up to you.)
You can add pony rides to your party @ $2.50 per child for children between 1 and 6 years of age). While at the farm (either during your party time or after you have left the party picnic area) you can purchase tickets for the Cow Train or Enchanted Express Train, too.

As part of our commitment to the continued well-being of our guests, staff and the animals in our care, and in ongoing efforts to assist our community in preventing the spread of COVID-19, we have implemented enhanced protocols and procedures you will notice during your visit.
We are doing all we can to promote a healthy environment, and in doing so, we also rely on you to keep recommended self-care in mind for your safety and the safety of others. Throughout your farm experience, please be mindful of current CDC guidelines and public health recommendations.
If you or a member of your family are feeling unwell, you will need to reschedule your party. Please make sure your guests know that they may not come to your party if they or anyone in their group are not feeling well.
Wash your hands often, using soap and water, for a minimum of 20 seconds. We have three handwashing stations at the Farm. If soap and water are not available, the CDC recommends using hand sanitizer. We encourage you to bring your own hand sanitizer and use it often. Sanitizer is available at the farm, too.
Help us promote social distancing by remaining at least six feet away from others who are not part of your household group. Throughout the farm, please use social distancing for your safety and the safety of other visitors and our staff.
Any day that we are open, timeframes are 10 AM to 12 noon, 10:30 AM to 12:30 PM, 12 noon to 2 PM, 1 PM to 3 PM, 2:30 PM to 4:30 PM or 3 PM to 5 PM. Your party is scheduled for two hours, but you have 15-20 minutes to set up before your party and 30 minutes after your party to say good-bye, pack up and clean up your table area. We provide trash bags and ask you to clean up your area before you leave. Thank you.
We are open rain or shine.
The $140 fee for the party covers up to 12 total visitors (including your family and your guests). Each addition guest will be charged at $10.00 per guest. There is no maximum number of guests allowed. Please use your best judgment so that you have a party where people can be safe and social distanced. Our recommendation is that you not exceed 40 guests. If you want to bring a larger number of guests than that, please contact Martha Clark at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Yes, you can just come and pay the general admission and pick the activities you want to do. You will not get some of the features of the regularly-scheduled party, but you will have greater flexibility and a lower cost if you just have a few children.
You can arrive up to 20 minutes ahead of your party start time to set up and get ready for your guests to arrive. You will have two and one half hours to enjoy your party picnic area. Our party staff will greet you when you arrive and show you to your party area. You will be able to enjoy your separate picnic area, explore the Fairy Forest and the Enchanted Forest attractions and maze while you are at the farm. As part of your party we will take the whole group together on a hay wagon ride and on a tour of the petting farm animals (If you would prefer, you can tour the animals on your own at your own pace and in smaller groups. It’s up to you.) While at the farm (either during your party time or after you have left the party picnic area) you can purchase tickets for the Cow Train or Enchanted Express Train. Remember you need to pack your car and leave your table area after 2 ½ hours from your party's start time.
You will pay for your party once all your guests have arrived.
You may bring cake, cupcakes, juices, sodas, snacks etc from home. You can order a cake or cupcakes from Touche Touchet Bakery, too at (410) 997-9338 Touche Touchet Bakery. We provide you with a list of pizza restaurants that deliver to the farm and you can call and have pizza ordered. We sell drinks, ice cream and snacks if you need them. There is no alcohol allowed at the farm.
Yes, we also host family reunions, high school reunions, corporate parties and family events, events for non-profit organizations and even small, informal weddings. Anyone who thinks it would be fun for their clients, employees, family members, classmates or friends to spend the day visiting with our friendly animals and exploring our wonderful Enchanted Forest attractions and rides should check out our Group & Event Rental page.
