A cherished tradition of the Antelope Valley Fair and Alfalfa Festival has been the naming of Miss Antelope Valley to lead her royal court of community queens. Miss Antelope Valley and the community queens reign over the fair festivities as well as serving as ambassadors in many events throughout the Valley including working at various Chamber events, Children’s Charities fundraisers, luncheons and special functions, lending their talent and generating community goodwill.

Although young women had been awarded the crown since 1912, the Antelope Valley Fair did not begin sponsoring the contest until 1945. In the early years, the queen was determined by which contestant sold the most tickets and raised the most money for charitable projects.

This year, fifteen extraordinary young women, each wearing a crown representing their respective communities, will vie for the title of Miss Antelope Valley 2014. The 70th Annual Pageant will be held at the Poppy Pavilion at the Antelope Valley Fairgrounds on Saturday, August 2, 2014 at 4pm. Since 1948, the Tournament of Roses Queen Committee has participated in the selection the Miss Antelope Valley. 

Over the years, scholarships have become a welcome and much needed addition to the Miss Antelope Valley experience. 

Current Miss Antelope Valley 2013, Miss Jasmine Alniami, Miss City of Palmdale, will pass the crown to the new Queen, who will reign over the 2014 Antelope Valley Fair (August 15 – 24, 2014). The pageant is a highly anticipated event, culminating in the coronation of a single Queen to represent the entire Antelope Valley.

Reading Room: The Queens will be having a Reading Room during Fair time in August in the Agriculture Building from 4-6pm weekdays and 2-5pm weekends.

With the Queens scholarship program each of the girls has the opportunity to earn a percentage of what they raise.

The top 4 girls who bring in the most money from scholarship and fundraising also receive an additional percentage of the total scholarship raised that year.

Miss Antelope Valley will get at least 60 % of the total scholarship raised.

Over the last 14 years, since the program started in 2000, the girls have raised over $200,000 dollars for educational scholarships. 6 of the past Miss Antelope Valley Queens have used their scholarship to earn their college degrees.
