About the Miss Gilroy Garlic Festival Queen Pageant…
Contestants are judged by a panel of five judges on personal interview, talent, garlic speech and evening gown at the Annual Gilroy Garlic Festival Queen Pageant. Young ladies between the ages of 18 – 24 and who live in Gilroy, Hollister, San Juan Bautista, San Martin, Morgan Hill or Aromas are eligible to enter the competition. The Queen and her Court represent Gilroy at various festivities leading up to the Festival. They have the opportunity to make guest appearances in local print and electronic media, in parades and at fundraising events. Most importantly, they spend all three days at the festival having a garlicky good time with fellow lovers of the pungent bulb.
