The Winona Peach Queen Pageant has been a long time tradition in our community. It offers young women the opportunity to develop their confidence as well as highlight their intelligence and personality. In addition, the 'Queen' and Princesses are ambassadors who travel to various community events and media outlets promoting tourism and goodwill.

As a delegate, the contestant must be between the ages of 14-18. All contestants are required to write and recite a speech about themselves, their sponsoring organization and the Winona Peach Festival. They are then also required to answer an impromptu question. The judging also consists of modeling casual and evening wear and interviews with each of the judges.

The process begins in May/June which allows for four months of bonding and growing friendships amongst the contestants that will last for a lifetime.  The get-togethers include many different things such as BBQs, mini-golf, visits to Children’s Hospitals, bowling, working out and attending the various parades throughout the region representing the Peach Festival. 

Once crowned, the Queen and Princesses will make many appearances on radio and television to promote the Peach Festival taking place the last weekend of August.  At the Peach Festival the contestants and the Queen and Princesses work at various booths, such as the fish pond, the ticket booth, the souvenir booth and their own organization booth.  Following the Peach Festival there are more events and parades to attend throughout the Golden Horseshoe, including Santa Claus parades.   

Patrons/Sponsors of the Winona Pageant:   Mother's Pizza Parlor (Hamilton), Today's Flowers, Cavalier Hair Fashions, Lois Redden (PartyLite Consultant), Scotia Bank, Winona Vine Estates, Eastgate Square, Splitsville Entertainment, Boston Pizza, Orangetheory Fitness, Puddicombe Farms & Winery, Seasons Stoney Creek, Robertson's Amusements.
