Fair Queen and Princess Contest

The Winneshiek County Fair selects an outstanding young woman each year to represent the county in the Iowa State Fair Queen Pageant.

Judging will be based on the following: personality, attitude, appearance and awareness, leadership and citizenship, contribution to community, overall appearance, charm, and poise.

Here are the 2019 Rules.

The Winneshiek County Fair Queen will be the guest of the Iowa State Fair August 8-18 2019.

If you have questions about the Fair Queen, contact JoEllen Foels by email or call her at (563)-382-1148.
