Hi, hippo-ga !
I found three US companies that run parties on their premises - one in
Florida, one in Arizona and one in New Jersey.
The New Jersey company is Candyland, 201 W. Main St., Somerville, NJ
Ph: (908) 685-0410
FX (908) 574-1640
The parties are conducted Tuesday through Saturday 10:00 to 12:00,
1:00 to 3:00 or 4:00 to 6:00.
Theyy are aimed at children from 4 years up, but I imagine could be
just as much fun for adults.
"COST: $7.00 per child. (Minimum 8, maximum 20)
$10.00 room charge. (Over 20 kids, $20.00 room charge. Absolute
maximum 24............NO exceptions...........thank you!)
THE FIRST HOUR THE CHILDREN LEARN HOW TO MAKE CANDY"
The arrangements for the second hour are up to you, but they can also
supply balloons, cakes, pinatas, drinks and icecream.
They provide room decorations, white paper tablecloth and all candy
making supplies. They also put your child's name (or presumably
yours)on the front window, and they clean the room at the end of the
They do not accept party bookings or queries about date availability
Instead they request you to phone(908) 685-0410 or stop into the
Candyland Crafts is on Main St. (Route 28), in Somerville, NJ.
"We are located roughly 20 miles N of Princeton, and 20 S of
Morristown. It's about 45 minutes to the Newark International Airport,
and we're approximately 45 minutes from Pennsylvania."
Detailed directions are available on their site at:
I cannot find (on the net) anyone who comes to your venue with this
kind of demonstration, but imagine it might not be possible due to:
a) the specialist machinery required, and
b) health and safety regulations.
There might however be a local licensed offsite caterer who is
prepared to give a simple demonstration.
in their parties, games and gifts category, party services and
supplies subcategory, turned up:
Lollies by Miss Margie
172 5th Avenue Suite #121, Brooklyn, NY 11217
(212) 894-3752 x4420 Voicemail/Fax
They may only be a lolly delivery service - they don't have a web page
- but it could be worth asking.
I hope this is helpful. Have fun at your party !

Thank you - the mention of a bar mitzvah gave me the clue. I found a
New York website called Bar Mirzvah NY which lists many business
resources. On their DJs' page:
they list a company called Advanced Entertainment whose advertisement
offers a very comprehensive range of services including candy making.
".....Tattoos, Candy Making, Krazy Hats, Murder Mystery, Trivia,
Robots, Laser Star, License Plates, CD Recording Booth, Carnivals,
Candle Art, ....."
A similar listing for them is at Bar Mitzvah Find It:
Visiting their website, I was unable to find a mention of candy
making, which could mean they no longer offer it but have not updated
their listings. However, they do state:
"As a leader in the industry with a concentration on the novelty
market, we keep in touch with agencies throughout the country and get
immediate access to what's really hot.
If you don't see something in our catalog, just call. We may have
recently acquired it or if its out there, we'll find it. "
So they may be well worth contacting at:
Phone(973) 402-6882 1-800-223-6060
Mention Bar MitzvahNY.com for a 10% discount.
In Florida the Candy and Cake Company does parties in Broward, Dade
and Palm Beach Counties, including candy making.
Ph: 954 220 CAKE
Parties start at $195 for 8 people
$9.90 for each additional child
"Candy Decorating Parties:
Each child gets:
*variety of chocolate/candy to make(theme to be your choice)
*Box to take home their creations
*Candy Mold to take home
*Edible confetti, glitter to decorate with
*Variety of colors and flavors of icings
*Apron/hat to keep"
It's not entirely clear whether they come to you, but I think they do.
The Good Earth Farm offers candy making as part of a farm experience
party, on thier premises.
2141 "B" Road, Lovehatchen, FL
I hope this helps.
