Miss Rockbridge Fair Pageant 2019 Saturday, August 10, 2019 at 12:00pm Mezzanine at Anderson Coliseum - Virginia Horse Center, Lexington, VA
We welcome you to be a part of the 2019 Miss Rockbridge Fair Pageant being held by the Rockbridge Regional Fair and Expo on August 10, 2019.
The Miss Rockbridge Fair pageant promotes and cultivates the empowerment of young women, and we encourage girls from infant to 19 years of age to compete for the Rockbridge Fair Pageant title in their age division. We provide an avenue for young women to foster poise, self-confidence, communication skills, and build self-esteem. Contestants learn self-discipline, stage presence, and the ability to think on their feet. We hope to provide a platform where young women will leave this pageant experience with a sense of pride and accomplishment, even if they do not take home the crown.
