Party Rentals at the JCC Indianapolis
The JCC Indianapolis is a centrally located venue with free parking and lots of options for hosts looking for unique party ideas. Our most popular parties are pool parties – outdoors in our Eskenazi Water Park during the summer and indoors in our warm-water therapy pool the rest of the year.
Birthday Parties at the JCC
Although anyone of any age can have a pool party, our pool parties and gym parties are most popular with children. Choose the J for your next children’s birthday party for a party that’s fun, convenient, and easy – for you and your guests. Let us coordinate your child’s next birthday party so you can enjoy every moment of it.
Plus, the JCC does not require food and beverage minimums. If you would like us to cater your event, see below. However, you are welcome to bring your own refreshments! We only ask that they be respectful of Jewish culture (see below). And at the J, parking is always free.
Birthday Party Options
All parties allow a maximum of 30 guests (children and adults) and are two hours long. Parties are priced at $304 / $234 for JCC members.
