Festival / fair,
Erika did an awesome job at my daughters birthday face painting and balloons were great. We got Ariel for the character the kids had lots of fun playing games with her and she was great answering all the questions they had. Thank you for coming and making my daughters birthday extra special.Mar 23, 2017Review from Facebook

Shoot! I was trying to share a picture as well and it won't let me upload one. Erika is the best at face painting that I have ever seen. She takes pride in what she does, loves kids and has the most amazing spirit. Thanks ERIKA for everything!May 7, 2016Review from Facebook
the Party would not have been as Outrageously Fantastic if it had not been for ENE! She came in on time ( HUGE!!!) and totally took our little princess theme party idea to an all out party wonder-land! She did tea time, dress up, face painting and even story time! I loved How she totally engaged the children, keeping the entertained all the way till it was time to wrap it up. It was so good- the Kids did not want to leave- Thanks you so much for making our Daughter feel like a total princess with all her friends! you killed it. cant wait to involve you in our next big theme!Feb 28, 2016Review from Facebook
Erika came out for my son's birthday and was a huge hit! There were 12 children total and they all were entertained. The laughter was infectious with the parachute games. Erika's storytelling had the perfect amount of inflection and range to really pull the children into the book. In less than an hour we had pirates, flowers and Elsas running around thanks to her face painting skills, and what kid doesn't love a balloon animal to take home?? All of the adult guests were impressed too, with a couple remarks of 'where was she when I was 5?' Her prices fair and her smile genuine, I definitely recommend and will use Erika Newsom Entertainment again!Jan 25, 2015Review from Facebook
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Once your entertainment has been selected and a date and time has been set, a quote will be sent to you for approval. Once you approve your quote, *a $50.00 NON-refundable booking fee and a signed contract will be required to book your event. The booking fee retains your special day & time and insures that it remains in your name so it is not booked out by another event. Your booking fee will be applied towards your total balance owed. Your balance will be due upon artist arrival at the event and becomes non-refundable at that time. The performer will travel up to 20miles from 92377 area for free. If your event is more than 20 miles, please contact us for more info. CASH, PAYPAL, or Credit Cards ONLY are accepted.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Yes, I'm constantly learning on how to better my performance and my skills through self education.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?It started when I was 18. I've been professionally trained as an artist and as an actress and singer. So I wanted to be in the entertainment field and I didn't want to work at a fast food place like most of my friends were doing at the time. Animated Characters was hiring so I got a position with them. That changed my life forever. I started as a secretary and then moved up to performer and event coordinator. Then after that I started working with several different event companies in San Diego and the rest is history. I fell in love with the business.
