Welcome to Princess Day Boston
A free party for little girls of color and their families.
Originally conceived in 2014 by performing artist Valerie Stephens, as a gift to her nieces, Princess Day is a free party for little girls of color and their families. We said “You are a Princess just the way you are!” And they came dressed from tutus, leggings, Super Hero costumes to full princess attire, filling the Gertrude Howe's Park with laughter and joy.
What started out as Princess Party for 30 has blossomed into a family event for close to 400 people, beautiful princesses and their families from throughout New England dancing, playing and celebrating together. Seeing Themselves in each other. It is truly a beautiful event.
For these efforts and more, Valerie received a 2019 Bridge Award in Arts, a 2018 Boston City Council Resolution.
