Good news, Pigeon Forge Cabin pageant fans! Sevier County has been chosen to host the 2017 Miss Tennessee beauty pageant at the Country Tonite theater in Pigeon Forge on the weekend of March 31st to April 2nd with registration and initial consultation at the Inn on the River on the parkway.
Already potentially the most famous independent music theater in the city for its celebrity concert series and other accolades, this will be an excellent showcase for the theater industry in town to provide precedent for a wider variety of events, entertainment and other noteworthy public items. The Miss Tennessee US website writes, “The primary goal of the Miss Tennessee United States Organization is to provide a life-changing experience for young, vibrant women across the country. The organization strives to empower all delegates to become active participants in her community while nurturing and promoting a cause meaningful to her.”
Each day of the weekend will provide the following pageant activities (as listed on the Miss Tennessee website):
Friday March 31st
* 3:00PM-5:00PM Registration Little Miss – Ms Woman

Additionally, in each of the Little Miss and Pre-Teen divisions, one delegate will be crowned and advance to the National Miss United States competition representing the entire state of Tennessee.

The director for the pageant is Summer Blalock Wilson, our resident veteran of the Tennessee pageant circuit. Summer has over 15 years experience in each major facet of the pageantry – contestant, titleholder, judge, production assistant and previous directing experience as well. Summer is a graduate of Gatlinburg Pittman High School and was crowned Miss Tennessee United States in 2012. She served as the Executive Director for the pageant in 2015 and has since moved up to the top directing position. The pageant couldn’t be in better hands!
