The 2017 Miss’d America Pageant, hosted by Carson Kressley at Borgata’s Event Center, is offering the largest cash prize ever for it’s winning lady: $5,000! A not-to-be-missed entertainment event, the Pageant started in 1994 at a local Atlantic City club and was created as a spoof of the world-famous Miss America Pageant to raise funds for a local charity. This year’s festivities, which will take place on Saturday, October 7 at 8PM, will feature Miss’d America 2017 Mimi Imfurst, the Miss’d America Dancers, the Melanie Rice Orchestra, and special musical guest Frankie Z.
But who are the queens who will battle it out for the esteemed crown? Some of the hottest drag acts from around the country have lined up to compete to be Miss’d America 2018. Check out their fabulous photos below, and join in all the fun on October 7. Tickets ($35-$100) are available by visiting the Borgata Box Office in-person or online, or by calling 866-900-4TIX.
