No waiting in line to meet a princess

When Princess Parties RVA princesses are booked at public events, the attention draws an hour-long line to meet a princess. When princesses are booked at private parties, kids are ensured individualized attention without having to wait.

Princess Parties RVA's princesses have grown up locally to Richmond, and all adore kids and dressing up. Their costumes pay close attention to detail. The princesses know their stories inside and out and enthusiastically share them with guests.


Boys and girls love storytime

The princesses have been featured in some of the most prominent kids festivals in Richmond. Princesses are invited to ride in the Richmond Christmas Parade in a private float sponsored by Macy's, and to perform in the annual Snow Days festival put on by the Richmond Children's Museum.

Princess Parties RVA's princesses include the Frozen Sisters (their most popular), Rapunzel, Ariel, Cinderella, Snow White, Belle and many more. Multiple princesses can be booked at once for a party.

Typical parties range from 30 minutes to 2 hours. At each visit princesses entertain guests through telling their story, singing songs, and crowning the birthday girl. Parties can include autograph signing, freeze dance to princess music, cheek painting, nail painting, glitter tattoos and making crowns to wear. Girls can learn princess training which includes how to treat people with kindness, and play princess games such as Pin The Nose on Olaf the Snowman and Pass the Magic Wand.

Sing, make crowns, play princess games, and have autographs signed

Princess Parties RVA typically book parties up to 50 miles outside of Richmond. There is no minimum or maximum age for participants. Young boys who attend the party love the visit, interactive story, and activities. If girls make crafts such as crowns, boys can make super hero masks.
