Michelle came out for our little guy's birthday party and did a fabulous job! She was very easy to reach and on-time and willing to do the adults as well as the children. The balloons she made the kids were really cute as well (this was an add-on).

We are very pleased with the services that my best party" provided us. We took a package of games, face painting / glitter tattoos and popcorn and cotton c dy commercial machines for our son's carnival themed first birthday​ which the party entertainers had handled seamlessly. The 25+ kids and also the adults had a great time!! They came early to the venue and set up their equipments perfectly and we're spot on time to commence their services. From the kind of work they did, it showed their professionalism and dedication and overall we were very happy to have booked our event entertainment with them!!!

We hired Great Scott for a 9 year old's birthday party. The show was great, really funny for both kids and adults. There was participation and he made sure that each one of the kids got to be a part of the show. Scott was professional and an all around nice guy. Although our performance was kid-friendly, he told us that he also does adult shows. I would recommend him without reservation.

Honestly a great artist. I needed a face painter for my nieces 10th birthday party and Sara was fantastic. Supper friendly with the kids and she knew what she was doing. Whatever the kids asked for she could do. I was nervous that the kids wouldn't like it but she was really sweet and genuinely likes painting and entertianing the kids. It was so nice not to have to worry about where the kids were the whole time. I was able to leave them with her and grab something to eat in the other room while she painted faces. Would 100% refer her to anyone looking for some entertainment for a kids party.

The face painting was a great addition to my daughter's 13th birthday party. They used glow in the dark paint that matched our neon/glow in the dark birthday theme. Also, they were very professional. They arrived on time and interacted with the teenage crowd very well. My daughter's friends loved all the designs that they created for them. I would definitely use Quixotic Fiestas again for my next event!

Lulu was great to work with. Super responsive, professional and on top of everything. We had the magician Louie and face painter/balloon maker also named Lulu come to our house. They were great and easily handled a lively bunch of kids. Professional, fun and great with the kids. i would highly recommend them both. This is the first time I had entertainment like this at my kids birthday party .... it took sooo much pressure off me - I would have them back,

Julie was great at my son's 7th birthday party! We had about 15 kids from the ages of 5 to 13, most were age 7, and everyone had a great time. A funny, entertaining magic show and then some great balloon twisting.

We hired David for our daughter's 11th birthday party and he was amazing!! Our daughter wanted a magic show "for grown-ups" for her and her "sophisticated" tween friends, and David delivered. They were out of their chairs in disbelief, squealing "No!!!" and "That's spooky!". David even had my 23 year old son and his girlfriend asking "wait a minute, how did he do that?" David was pleasant and professional, arrived on time, and made my daughter's party a huge success! Definitely hire him for you next event!!

Anna came for my grandfather's 90th birthday party today and we couldn't be happier with her performance! She had the crowd going, all ages from 13 years old to 90! She was very professional and knew how to show everyone a clean, fun time. I would highly recommend her for any event and would use her again for our next party! Thanks again Anna!

Cynthia was amazing for my daughter's 4th birthday party, kids got Balloon twisting, face painting, games and cotton candy for a great rate. The kids all enjoyed themselves. She painted each child with thier own unique face art or what they requested. The balloons were creative and fun. The kids loved the games and music, the cotton candy was yummy..kids had lots of fun with Cynthia, no complaints. I would book her again.

Ashley was WAY MORE than amazing! Everyone loved her, she was so friendly and flexible from the very start and not to mention did such a great job of keeping my daughter and all 17 of her friends entertained, she has so much talent, and so much heart! Also she did not hesitate while she was putting her gear away to accommodate a few more of our late comers. My daughter and her friends were running around with gorgeously painted faces wielding creatively shaped balloons and laughing with glee. If you want to find a birthday party entertainer who loves kids and loves what she does, then Ashley is definitely the young lady of your choice!! and we are definitely looking forward to having her at our future family events.

Denny More I would highly recommend. I would give him a lot more than five stars if I could. He did comedy and magic at my husbands 50th birthday party . Denny had everyone laughing the whole time. I had people coming up to me telling me how great Denny's show was, everyone wanted to know how they could book Denny for there party. Thank you Denny for making my husbands party so great. 👍😃

Kent performed at our house for an adult birthday party. The act was very engaging and sophisticated. He has a very comfortable easy way about him and we all got into the performance right away. His magic is amazing and we are all still talking bout it. We were hoping for a classy sophisticated magic/mentalist act and that is exactly what we got. I highly recommend Kent.

Jax has done face painting at a number of parties I have had for my daughters, and we have been extremely pleased with her work and her professionalism. Jax is very patient with kids, and extremely skilled at face painting. She is able to create many kinds of looks and styles. She also has a great work ethic. At the last party I hired her for, she made more than 30 balloon favors ahead of time, and stayed well past the time we had agreed on to make sure that every kid was able to get his or her face painted. She has a positive attitude and is always very flexible. I highly recommend her!

I hosted a surprise birthday bash for my sisters 50th birthday and hired Kristoff for that special MAKE IT DIFFERENT element and WOW he was AMAZING! Took the simple elegant dinner to an entirely new level. I wouldn't even think twice to recommend him. HE IS A MUST! You and guests will talk about the experience for years to come! Thank you so much Kristoff, I am still dumbfounded by your magic. x Heidi Breiland, Edgewater New Jersey

The first time we saw Henry perform was two years ago at friend's party. We were dazzled by him, so we hired Henry to perform at my birthday party two years ago. Well, after Henry baffled us with being able to mentally see certain words, objects and/or thoughts in my husband’s mind and those of our guests, my husband who never before believed in magic became believer. So once again I hired Henry for my husband’s birthday party which was a few days ago, and our guests and we are still asking “how did he do that?”!!! Henry is a genius. He is charming, professional, and mind blowing. We can’t wait to see Henry perform his magic again and see what else he has up his sleeve.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
