The Queen's Pageant, held prior to the festival, officially kicks off the festival, and the Louisiana Pecan Festival Queen and her Court are selected from contestants from all over the State of Louisiana. Once selected, it is her duty to reign over the festival, attend the Queen's Ball held on the Friday night of the festival, and be the official ambassador to Louisiana's pecan industry.
