About Pig Belly Entertainment in New York

Our Mission and History

Pig Belly Entertainment’s goal is to provide an exciting interactive experience for participants of all ages.

Our original company, Kidzplay, was formed in 1994 in Buffalo, New York, and has since expanded into a full-service entertainment company specializing in three different markets.

Kidzplay, a local, woman-owned business, has a large presence in the local Buffalo market, providing inflatables, games and hands-on activities to area businesses, schools, churches and country clubs, with events ranging from backyard birthday parties to major corporate functions. With one of the largest inventories of inflatables and novelties in the Northeast, we can customize a package to ensure your event is an exciting and successful one. Whether it is your company picnic, post prom party, wedding, birthday party or backyard BBQ, we want to put our knowledge and a vast array of equipment to work for you to make your event a fun and memorable one!

Kidzplay’s focus on providing organized games and activities for private parties and events has grown considerably over the years working with a variety of clients including country clubs, corporations, churches, and schools.

In addition to off-site private events, Kidzplay opened its indoor party facility in 2005 in Clarence, New York, and has hosted hundreds of private parties and field trips each year. The fact that our parties are completely private and come with their own party coaches sets us apart from the competition.

In 2008, Kidzplay launched a new division; PIG BELLY ENTERTAINMENT, with a focus on the college market. Since its inception, Pig Belly Entertainment has traveled to some great schools including Southwestern Michigan College, University of Kentucky, Eastern Maine Community College, University of Akron, Cleveland State University, Radford University, Western Connecticut State University, University at Buffalo, Daemen College and Onondaga Community College.

With the addition of new cutting-edge equipment year after year, we have amassed one of the largest inventories of inflatables, extreme attractions, games, and crafts in the Northeast. Our goal is to keep your events new and exciting while assuring a high level of safety. We include trained staff with our equipment, and we are fully insured.

But the best and new way to enjoy my time will be riding my new green 1974 Vespa Piaggo around town this summer! Yey!! I’m so Italian!
