    2023 will mark our 15th year of providing foster and community children alike the opportunity to experience a day of pampering and fun. In 2022, we catered to more than 300 princesses and we hope to be able to grow even more in 2023! This is a regal gathering for all the children in the land, which celebrates the children both in foster care and the community by giving them the royal treatment. This includes being pampered, adorned in a new outfit fit for royalty, and a fancy tea party. Stay tuned for more information about 2023’s event!

About Princess for a Day

Princess For a Day is a community event where kids of all ages and backgrounds are transformed into princesses. Both foster and community kids alike receive a day of pampering and excitement, straight out of a fairytale. The princesses begin their day in the Princess Salon, where they have their hair and makeup styled like royalty--including a tiara! Next, the princesses move on to the Royal Boutique, where they pick out a complete princess outfit inlcluding a dress, shoes, and accessories (all to take home and keep)! After their makeover, the princesses head to a photo shoot with professional photographers, where they'll receive a personal printed copy of their photo. Then they walk the red carpet, escorted by Disney royalty! The princesses are announced by name into the royal ball and tea party, where they dance with their favorite Disney Characters and enjoy a buffet of locally-sourced treats.

Princess For a Day is free to foster youth, and open to community kids through ticketing. To register for 2023's Princess For a Day, please click here.
