This year, the Kansas City Museum is proud to announce that the Fairy Princess event will be held in the museum’s new Betty Milbank Waldrop Salon, the beautiful Louis XVI French Salon. Corinthian Hall, home of the Kansas City Museum, is now updated with state-of-the-art technology for its exhibits, and is again a showplace of architectural magnificence. 

Also, this year the Kansas City Museum is celebrating our 36th year of hosting the Fairy Princess. It was in 1987 when the Kansas City Museum resumed the Fairy Princess tradition after Kline’s Department Store had closed in early 1970.

It was in 1935 that Kline’s on Main Street, downtown Kansas City, had first initiated the Fairy Princess event to promote their new “Toyland” Department. After 35 years of yesterday’s youngsters telling their fondest holiday hopes to the magical Fairy Princess, her enchantment came to an end. Then, 18 years would go by when in 1987 the Kansas City Museum resumed the Fairy Princess tradition.

Therefore, this year, is a very special year for the Kansas City Museum. We are celebrating 36 years of Fairy Princess magic to generations of youngsters.

Now, the Fairy Princess will always be on her throne in a room befitting of the wonderous enchantment and hopeful wishes she gives to each child’s visit.
