Meet The Owner!
Hey! I'm Katie, the founder of Storybook Events.
I wanted to start an entertainment company to bring joy to Waterloo Region and beyond! Prior to starting Storybook Events, I worked as a character entertainer with Busy Bees Parties for 3 years. Being an actress with experience in the arts and entertainment industry, I wanted to find a way to do what I love and bring smiles to faces at the same time.
At Storybook Events we make imagination a reality. My goal with this company is to bring magic into the lives of every child we have the honour of meeting. As an avid fairytale lover myself, I know just how special these interactions can be for kids and adults alike!
Please keep us in mind for any and all of your entertainment and fairytale needs. If you don't see what you're looking for, feel free to contact me personally and I'd be happy to help grant your wish — just call me your fairy godmother of parties!
We look forward to entertaining you!
