The St. John Sugar Queen committee is proud to announce the highly anticipated return of the St. John Sugar Queen Pageant.

This sweet tradition has been a staple in the River Parishes for years, and after a 6-year hiatus, it is now time to crown yet another young lady with the prestigious title of St. John Sugar Queen.

This year’s pageant takes place Saturday, August 3 at the historic St. John Theatre in Reserve. The event begins at 7 p.m. and is sure to be filled with top-quality entertainment as well as stellar local talent.

Join us as we celebrate our 2023 St. John Sugar Queen, Jaycee Bennett, and welcome a new queen to represent our sweet parish with excellence. Contestants must be residents of St. John Parish and meet pageant guidelines such as age requirements.

Teen contestants are ages 14-17 and Miss contestants are ages 18-22. For more information about the pageant and how to participate, email us at
