2017 Beaver Queen Pageant

Durham, NC Jun 3 4:00 pm - Jun 3 7:00 pm

The Beaver Queen Pageant is Durham’s own special mix of folly, pageantry, and humor. Contestants take on beaver personalities and compete for the title of Beaver Queen with their fashion, talent, and personality. The theme for the 13th Annual Beaver Queen Pageant is "Wizard of Gnawz". Come enjoy the fun at this family-friendly and free event which raises funds for the Ellerbe Creek Watershed Association. Vote for your favorite contestants - or bribe a judge - at There will be food trucks, a scrap exchange booth, and a kiddie pool area. Emcee'd by WUNC's Frank Stasio, this is a truly weird and delightful Durham experience.

Location: Duke Park, 106 W. Knox St., Durham, NC
