Every young lady dreams of being queen on a tropical island; which is why the Festival Queen contest is so very popular amongst Caymanians.

Sponsored by the Ministry of Culture, Miss Festival Queen is tailored to ladies 16 and older and is a unique way to showcase Caymanian culture through design.

This wholesome, family-friendly event is a competition between the district Heritage Committees. Each district elects a young lady as its representative and everyone works to together to design a costume.

The winner will lead the annual day parade, showing off her district’s winning costume to a crowd of more than 12,000 people. All contestants will showcase their costumes at their individual Heritage Day events.
