The Harrison Fest Queens United Nations Pageant will be held on Friday, September 15, 2017. Over twenty queens will participate in the pageant which will be held at the Holy Cross Banquet Annex in Harrison NJ. The pageant brings together contestants who practice together and form friendships and bonds many of which have continued past the event.  There is still an opportunity to join the group of contestants.  The Pageant is looking for contestants who qualify to represent Italy and/or Scotland.  So it in your family history (it can be generations ago) you have someone who immigrated to the United States of American from Jamaica, Japan, Germany, Honduras, India, Italy, and Scotland, you qualify.  You must complete an application and show commitment and desire to fully engage in the practice sessions and the pageant. The Queens United Pageant Coordinator, Yanina T. Paz, has been holding training sessions to teach the contestants the various parts of the Pageant and how to built confidence and stage presence.  The group is already bonding and building those friendships that continue well beyond the very special event.  If you are interested in participating in the Queens Gala as a contestant please email at or call the number at the bottom of the page.
