The Mrs. Essex County Pageant will crown the 43rd Mrs. Essex County at this year’s Topsfield Fair. There is still time for women to enter! Through the years, hundreds of women have entered the contest for the honor of representing the Essex Agricultural Society at local events and serving as hostess of the Topsfield Fair. Not a beauty competition, the Mrs. Essex County Pageant invites entries of married women living in Essex County, over the age of 18, with general appearance, poise, outgoing personality, and spirit of volunteerism. Contestants also submit a homemade food item for judging.
The pageant’s unwavering mission through the decades has been to celebrate the role of the contemporary, married woman who exemplifies a multi-faceted commitment to family, work, community, as well as herself.
This year’s pageant will be held in Coolidge Hall on the Topsfield Fairgrounds on Sunday, October 13th at 2:00pm. Applications can be downloaded from the Exhibitor’s Handbook found at www.topsfieldfair.org. Entry deadline is Thursday, October 10th at 10:00 p.m. For more information, contact pageant coordinators Carrie Crouch at 978-683-3256 or Cathy Carroll at 978-975-3972.
