The sweet 16 birthday is a major milestone in a teenager's life. Aside from the food, venue and decor, the entertainment is one of the most important aspects of the party. When throwing a sweet 16 party, choose entertainment that will keep the teens interested and having fun.


Hire a disc jockey for your upcoming sweet 16 party. A DJ is a good idea if you are having a co-ed party, as both boys and girls could dance throughout the evening. If the party is at home, push the furniture to the edges of the living room or transform your garage or backyard into a dance floor. If you are unable to afford a professional disc jockey, act as a DJ yourself using mixed CDs or your MP3 player. You can even rent speakers from a party rental business.

Fortune Teller

Hire a fortune teller to entertain the kids at a sweet 16 birthday party. The kids can have individual or group sessions with the fortune teller, who will look into a "magic" crystal ball and give them information about their futures.


Another sweet 16 entertainment option is hiring a comedian. When searching for the right one, make sure that his or her material will be age-appropriate for teenagers. The comedian could simply tell jokes, or may involve other routines in the act, such as impressions or improvisation.


Consider renting a karaoke machine for the sweet 16 birthday party. The kids can have a singing competition using some of their favourite songs, or they can simply take turns making the rest of the guests laugh at their renditions of popular music. Choose a karaoke machine that has several microphones so the teens can sing songs as groups.
