Fairy Skye was founded in summer of 2017 by owner Amanda Gerard.
Fairy Skye brings fairy tales to life through princess parties and character entertainment. Whether it be a princess, mermaid, or hero, we help your child meet their favourite character. Through Fairy Skye, we aim to inspire young children to follow their dreams and never stop believing in themselves. Every child should feel special, and our goal is to show children how unique they are at each and every event we attend. We want each and every child we meet to feel truly and deeply special and know that they are beautiful inside and out.
"We aim to inspire children to follow their dreams and never stop believing in themselves- one event at a time."

Victoria is a Speech-Language Pathologist from Vancouver with a flair for the dramatic and creative. She has always had a strong love for musical theatre (and acting like a princess). It started with her obsession with Cinderella which she insisted on watching every day as a child “incase the ending changed”. She has appeared in many theatre productions, highlights including Cinderella (where she forgot to “lose” her glass slipper and had to kick it across the stage), Bye Bye Birdie, and Zombie Prom. Victoria’s combined love for musical theatre and being a princess make Fairy Skye a perfect fit for her, and she can’t wait to share her smiles and sparkle with you!
