Contestant Information.

Welcome to the Deland Pride Family. This is our Second Annual DeLand Pride Pageant and we are very proud of its continued success.

DeLand Pride Pageant Registration is open to anyone that wishes to compete that can faithfully execute the requirements of King or Queen. The Pageant consists of three categories:

  • DeLand Creative Costume - Your costume should reflect the community, culture, or historic heritage of DeLand, Florida.

  • Evening Wear with Question and Answer Session

  • Talent - Your talent selection should consist of no more than 2 songs and can not exceed 7 minutes.

  • Crowning - In addition to the 3 competition categories all contestants are required to have a RED outfit for the crowning and awards finale.

By participating in the DeLand Pride Pageant (DPP) you agree to uphold the following rules and regulations upon crowning. Failure to fulfill your duties as Mister or Miss DeLand Pride will result in forfeiture of your crown/medallion, sash and any remaining monetary benefits. DPP first alternate will be appointed in your place.

  • Deland Pride holds 2 regularly occurring social events each month along with a variety of other events throughout the year. Mister and Miss DeLand Pride is expected to attend 3 events each quarter. The following are mandatory events that require full participation from beginning to end:

    • Annual Meeting (January)

    • Anniversary Drag Show (June)

    • Daytona Tortugas Pride Night (June)

    • Block Party (October)

    • Deland Christmas Parade (December)

  • Mister and Miss DeLand Pride is not allowed to compete in other Pride Pageants during their reign. Participation in other Pageant Systems is permitted.

  • Mister and Miss DeLand Pride must promote the DPP as they visit other pride festivals in Florida.

  • Sashes are to be respected and worn as directed. Additional sizes and replacements can be ordered at Mr/Miss’s expense.

  • Reigning court is required to wear their sash, medallion, and crown at all Pride Events and Pride Pageants they attend. Exceptions can be made during a current title holder walk with another system. We respect all other titles that entertainers may hold while being with our system and you may wear those at other non-pride systems.

Deland Pride is the only organization in Volusia County with a Pageant System so it is up to us to make sure that the LGBTQ community of Deland and surrounding areas is properly and respectfully represented. Help us create something great.
