About the Pageant

The St. Bernard Redfish Festival Pageant is the official pageant of the St. Bernard Parish Redfish Festival & Redfish World Series. The Teen & Miss winners of the pageant will be official ambassadors for the festival, parish, and Redfish World Series throughout the year of their reign, and will travel the state representing our events all year.

The Redfish family of events celebrate the importance of the Louisiana Redfish to our local economy and community, as well as the impact the sport of catching these fish has to our state. Our parish is truly the Redfish Capital of the World, and anglers from across the world visit our waters every year to catch this amazing fish. Most importantly, we promote the vital commodity that commercial fishing is to not just our local economy but across the state of Louisiana. We seek to promote the need to protect our wetlands and bring awareness to the coastal areas of our state that are more important than ever.
