About Us

The Past Princess Association Inc was formed in 1994 by our current Princesses that year to celebrate our sisterhood and history of the Wind Princesses as part of the Saint Paul Winter Carnival Royal Legend. The PPA is a 501(c)(3) organization.

Women who are selected to represent the Saint Paul Winter Carnival as a Wind Princess enjoy the unique opportunity of serving as public relations ambassadors for the city of Saint Paul. The year consists of promoting civic functions, reaching out to the citizens of the realm, and offering enthusiasm, appreciation and support for local non-profits and philanthropic organizations. As a Princess, fostering healthy relationships with surrounding cities as well as our national and international sister cities is of the utmost importance.  These women live the lore and spread the Legend of Winter Carnival to those young and old.

Among our activities are Princess Mentorship, the annual Princess Farewell event, Membership Meetings, providing funding for the reigning Princess Parade Costumes, volunteering at the Saint Paul Festival & Heritage Foundation's annual golf tournament and participating in parades. 

Our History

For many years, a Princess' continued involvement after her reign ended was limited to and provided through other groups. As a result, the Past Princess Association (PPA) was established in 1994 through the efforts of a group of former Princesses in order to keep our love for community involvement & Carnival activities alive.


Our growth over the past 30 years continues to provide opportunities for membership participation and community involvement through traditional events and the creation of new activities.

The Past Princess Association Inc. is a 501(c)3 organization.
