Thanks to our sponsors below this event is free to our Sweethearts!
We want everyone to make memories and enjoy the fair! While everyone is ALWAYS welcome to participate, sometimes people feel a barrier. The Adams County Fair Board proud to announce the 4th Annual Sweetheart of Adams County Pageant as a way to encourage and involve new participants into our pageant night!
The Sweetheart of Adams County Pageant is a unique opportunity for individuals of all ages with intellectual or physical disabilities to experience being a Queen or King for an evening. The Sweetheart of Adams County Pageant is open to all ages from 3 to 99, and is meant to give individuals a chance to focus on their abilities and gain life skills, self-confidence and happiness.
The Pageant is meant to be a fun family experience so a pageant wardrobe is not necessary. The individuals participating are asked to wear what makes them feel special.
Every female contestant will receive a crown and banner. Male contestants will receive a banner.
The cost of the event is being covered by two local businesses Overhead Door of Quincy and Eighth Avenue Villager.
During the pageant, participants will have a crowning moment on stage while a short bio is read. After participant is crowned and/or given sash they will walk the runway.
It's your chance to shine at the Adams County Fair Karaoke Contest!
