For those from outside our area and unfamiliar with it, the pageant takes place in the Emerson School "Cafetorium," a red brick building just east of the elementary school.

The physical address for the elementary school is 506 W. Main, Emerson, AR 71740.  (Main Street is the same as Arkansas Hwy 98.)

The festival takes place on and near the grounds of Emerson Schools. You can get more info regarding directions by going to our Directions page.

Also, be sure and "Like" our Facebook page to be alerted to all festival updates.

We encourage all our pageant winners to be in the Million Tiller Parade which will be at 1:00 p.m., Saturday, June 25.  The parade will begin forming near the intersection of U.S. Hwy. 79 and Hwy. 98 at 12:30 p.m.

Remember: You do not have to be from Emerson or a resident of Arkansas to participate!  We invite everyone to come join the fun.
