Wow - kids actually get to paint a horse when they attend one a farm birthday party in Atlanta at The Farm at Pamelot and The Painted Horse Winery This stunning farm offers pony rides, petting zoo, craft, and fun parties for kids of all ages. For over two decades, Juliette Johnson and her team have been hosting events for kids at the farm in Milton, making every child’s pony ride dreams come true. Let’s jump in with Painted Horse Winery and The Farm at Pamelot!

Getting Started: From Horseback Riding Camps to The Ultimate Farm Birthday Party in Atlanta

Juliette Johnson has always loved horses and eventually began teaching lessons and running camps. “We have always had horses on property. In high school, I would teach lessons and do camps in the summer. Then parties started here and there and naturally evolved,” shared Juliette. The winery, an extension of the farm, came to life around five years ago, and now offers a variety of events and wine tasting throughout the week.

The Farm at Pamelot and The Painted Horse Winery offer a perfect package for parents seeking a farm birthday party in Atlanta for that special birthday boy or girl dreaming of a pony ride. Kids' birthday party packages include:

  • Full use of the gazebo space
  • Petting zoo
  • Pony rides
  • Finger painting on a horse

For these farm birthday parties in Atlanta, parents or party hosts provide food and beverages and can add any décor to the gazebo space. Many also add other features such as princesses, characters, cotton candy machines, balloon garlands, and more.

These Atlanta kids' birthday parties generally begin with pony rides, then move toward the petting zoo. Kids get to say hello to the horses, ducks, cows, donkeys, sheep, goats, turkeys, and barn dogs. Then, the craft begins, and kids get to meet the horses and finger paint to decorate one of the horses. Finally, the party moves back to the pavilion to enjoy food and cake and sing happy birthday to the birthday boy or birthday girl! But the team at The Painted Horse Winery is super flexible and allows parents to change up the flow as they’d like.

Q&A with Juliette Johnson of The Farm at Pamelot

We got to chat with Juliette to learn more about the ultimate farm birthday party for kids in Atlanta!

Tell us about your kids' birthday parties!

We offer pony rides, petting zoo, a craft, and a pavilion for hosting the event. Parents can organize any other activities they might like; some bring in a princess, popcorn, or cotton candy. We only host one kids' birthday party at a time in the gazebo. We are very go-with-the-flow; if the parents want to change up the order, we can make that happen.

What is your favorite part of hosting events for children?

I have always loved hosting events, I enjoy meeting so many different people, seeing how much fun everyone has, having a good time, then leaving feeling relaxed.

What is the funniest thing that has happened at an event?

At one event, two goats escaped out of their pen, jumped onto the party table, pulled the tablecloth off, dug into the food, and started eating the cake on top of the table. We were all chasing them! I felt horrible but fortunately everyone at the birthday party thought it was hilarious!

What is the ideal age range for your kids birthday parties?

We have hosted childrens' birthday parties for kids from ages 1-12. I’d say the sweet spot is really ages 3-8. The magic of the pony rides is really special at that age!
