The 41st annual Mrs. America Pageant will once again return to its original home at the Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino this summer (Pictured: Nevada Delegate Stephanie Barrett). Hosted by Barbara Chase, daughter of the late Florence Henderson, and actor Christopher Knight, the 2017 Mrs. America Pageant will be held Saturday, August 26, 2017 inside the renowned International Westgate Theater at Westgate Las Vegas Resort & Casino.
More than 52 women, including a contestant that will be more than eight months pregnant at the time of the competition, will compete in the 2017 Mrs. America Pageant for the chance to represent the United States in the internationally-televised Mrs. World Pageant, which will be held in South Africa in December 2017. A winner will be crowned during the final competition on Saturday, August 26 from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m.
The Mrs. America Pageant, rich in history, was first held in 1938 and continued until 1968. The pageant was revived after a nine-year hiatus in 1977 at the-then Las Vegas Hilton by David Marmel who, after a career in professional athletics and television production, helped transform the pageant into the multifaceted event is it today. The event was the first, and remains the foremost, competition for the married woman of the United States. For nearly four decades, Mrs. America has epitomized excellence, professionalism and the celebration of family values.
