October 30, 1997 – DisneyFest Kicks Off in Singapore

“DisneyFest is the first venture of Singapore-based Disney Entertainment Projects.”

On October 30, 1997, an event called DisneyFest kicked off its run in Singapore. Originally beginning as a traveling fair called The Disney Fair, its goal was to bring Disney to other states within the United States. Opening in Puyallup, Washington, the fair only succeeded in traveling a few stops before disbanding. However, it was believed that the fair setup would be successful in Asia, and would be a testing ground for other Asian Disney projects, including potential theme parks. The fair featured a live stage show, exhibits, games, shopping, and inflatable Mickeys.
