- WHO WE ARE
- The Princess Festival’s mission is to touch the hearts of young girls, families, and communities to empower them in acts of service, kindness, and courage through the creative engagement of imaginative characters, stories, and events.Our upcoming shows will provide the same FUN and ADVENTURE that all Princess Festival events bring, this time for the whole family. Girls and boys (from ages 4 to 10) will meet over a dozen fairy tale characters in an imaginary world, including our original Princesses and their wise, fun & unconventional mentors, the Hobbydukes. Being an interactive experience, all will become part of the story while learning how to make the world a better place! Our characters and stories reinforce the good values of courage, kindness, friendship, and making a difference through acts of service.
- HISTORY OF THE PRINCESS FESTIVAL
- The idea of bringing young people together to empower them with good, easy to learn values while entertaining them with fantasy characters of a fairy tale world, was the dream of community leader and businessman, Ron Hatfield. A father and grandfather of 36 girls, Ron and his family felt inspired to create a storytelling experience to combine fun and simple lessons so that each girl can feel special and learn to become a true Princess.The idea of service, adventure, and problem-solving tying into the values of the Princess Festival came from Ron’s own personal commitment to help bring much needed drinking water to hurting communities in Africa.In 2008, Ron and his wife opened their home and estate to almost 400 little girls and their families marking the first Princess Festival. Through their grassroots effort each year it has grown but has always had a home in Utah. The Hatfields have a dream to bring the Princess experience to little girls all around the world.The Festival also promotes strong community volunteerism and an affiliation with charities that make an impact in a suffering part of the world.
