Being 16 is an exciting stage for every teenager. Sixteen is not just another year and definitely a reason to celebrate.

Get the party started and celebrated in style with the most adventurous activities and party for your 16th birthday that you’d absolutely love trying out and make your birthday worth remembering.


16th birthday party ideas:

1. Go Kart Racing


Speed into your sixteenth birthday at your favorite go-kart track with friends and family. Beyond being lots of fun, entertaining, and a great way for the birthday honoree to gain experience behind the steering wheel, holding your sixteenth birthday at a go-kart track can also be helpful to parents, since they won’t have to worry about cleaning up or prepping their home for their teen’s sweet sixteen celebration 🙂

2. Murder Mystery Dinner Theatre

If you are a theater lover, then organize a thriller act or play along with your friends. You can arrange a mysterious murder or suspense play or hire actors to perform for you. Hiring would be a better option as you don’t need to organize the play and everything would be done by them. Moreover, the actors would play it perfectly and you can sit and enjoy the performance with your family and friends.

3. Plan An Epic Camping Trip

Hosting an Outdoor Movie Party is fun and a great way to hang out with friends.  Set up a large screen outside (you can hang a white sheet) and project a current movie or an old favorite like Sixteen Candles onto the big screen.  Have guests gather around with sleeping bags, beach towels, lawn chairs or beanbags and have fun under the stars. String white lights in trees and around the party area to look like stars.  Pop popcorn and serve in small tubs or brown bags.

6. Horse Riding or Diving

  1. My son is nearing his 16th birthday in a couple of years and I wanted to make sure I have something special planned for him. I found it very helpful how you suggested hosting a simple party at home with family and friends with additional entertainment because my son has never been the type to have parties in public places like parks and so an arranged party with people he knows sounds like the best choice. I’ll be sure to look for a few venues I can keep a list to prepare in advance. Thank you so much!
