Miss Morganton Festival Pageant

Get Involved

Our Mission

The Miss Morganton Pageant is open to young ladies, ages 4-24, who reside in North Carolina. The pageant takes place prior to the Historic Morganton Festival in August, the queens are officially crowned prior to the festival.
The pageant celebrates strong, committed young women who are willing to represent the community as a goodwill ambassador. Queens also become a role model of today while strengthening our City for tomorrow. The Morganton Festival Queens not only work to promote the Morganton Festival throughout the year, but they also spend time working on their personal community service platforms and embracing the spirit of “giving back” in our community. Our Queens are here as ambassadors to the Morganton community. They represent us for one year mentoring their gracious generosity of giving back.
