Welcome to Calgary Reptile Parties!

Whether you are celebrating your child’s birthday, looking for an interesting program for your school or group, or just looking for a creative way to entertain, Reptile Parties is a fun, educational, and affordable form of entertainment!

Established in 2008, Reptile Parties has educated and entertained hundreds of thousands of people in Calgary and across Canada, and was seen on the Animal Planet show SCALED in 2018. Find out why we’ve been consistently voted one of Calgary’s top birthday parties in the Calgary’s Child Magazine Parent’s Choice Awards.

What We Do

Reptile Parties are structured to appeal to different age groups and size. Kids meet up close cold-blooded animals such as friendly bearded dragons, amazing frilled dragons, colorful geckos, incredible snakes of all sizes, and even tarantulas and scorpions! They may even come face-to-face with Faith, the 8-foot plus surinam red tailed boa constrictor!

Reptiles are scheduled based on availability and interest. Parties for children 7 and under focus more on basic reptile information while events for older children combine the unique opportunity to see reptiles up close with education, including proper care and husbandry as well as information about conservation.

Who We Are

Jason Clevett - Owner
Jason has turned his childhood passion for reptiles & amphibians into a career. He launched Calgary Reptile Parties in 2008 and subsequently Edmonton Reptile Parties and Canadian Reptile Encounters.

Jason is the resident reptile expert on Animal Planet’s Scaled, bringing his knowledge and education to homes in 195 countries. While he loves spreading his message of responsible reptile ownership, husbandry and conservation worldwide, the up-close connections in person motivates his love of doing shows in Calgary. In addition to Reptile Parties, Jason is a former volunteer assistant gorilla keeper at the Calgary Zoo, former executive member and president of The Alberta Reptile & Amphibian Society, and has appeared across Western Canada at events as well as TV and Radio. He knows that education is the key to eliminating myths and stereotypes about reptiles, amphibians, and arachnids.
