Event Description

The Main Event Center presents the second annual "natural pageant" at this year's 63rd Annual Sucker Day Music, Arts, and Craft festival. The success of 2019's event has made us so excited this year in our pursuit to find young ladies who represent Nixa Sucker Day's commitment to character excellence, community, and service. The pageant will be on May 22nd, at the Main Event Center. There is a $50.00 non-reundable fee for each contestant. Please make sure to plan this to be an all day event as we will be determing pageang times based on number of entries. For more information contact pageant coordinator Pam Anderson at (417) 844-3599 or

There are two mandatory practices to choose from to attend either May 11th and May 18th at 5PM at Main Event Center.
