How and Why We Do What We Do
Our goal at Festa Parties is to provide our customers with unique and highly engaging entertainment services. Through joyful and relentless creativity and industriousness, we seek to produce great events like TBOX, BeadQuest, and Cover Your Bases and make sure that the greatest amount of willing participants have the greatest time they can for the day of the event, and tell the greatest amount of people they can, so we can keep spreading the cheer! We also strive to put a creative, quirky, dynamic, exciting, and interesting twist on everything we do, by really putting passion into it. Let’s face it… how could you not have fun doing this, right?
Along the way, we also strive to provide our customers with the best, smartest, friendliest customer service we can. We believe that pleasing the heck out of customers and convincing them to voluntarily part with their hard-earned cash to us is the surest road to health, wealth, and happiness! The Owner, Christopher Festa, started TBOX as a “civilian” just for fun back in 1996, and you can read more about the early days of TBOX here.

More About Us
First and foremost, we humbly, gratefully, and proudly appreciate the fact that we were born in and are able to have the freedom to originate and operate our business in the United States of America. We appreciate and will never take for granted the blessings, safety, and prosperity we enjoy in the USA, and we’d in particular like to thank and recognize the men and women of the United States Military, without whose sacrifices and bravery since the mid-1770s, we would not have the wonderful nation we have today. We’d also like to recognize the great men and women of business and industry, the many inventors, investors, and entrepreneurs who came before us, and the free enterprise system itself, all without which there would be no Festa Parties — we’d all be living in caves or at best, working in the fields from dusk till dawn threshing wheat. Don’t take it for granted!
Additionally, we seek to enhance and add value to our community by providing jobs, and providing products and services that add value and happiness to peoples’ lives and raise their standard of living. Much like iPods are 47,000% times better than 8-Track Players, we want to make the going-out experience much better for people than the normal night at a bar.
