2023 Celtic Heritage Queens Pageant and Changes to Royal Court

 With the successful advent of our Shenanigans and Hooligans Celtic Festival, and it becoming a confirmed festival with the Louisiana Association of Fairs and Festivals, the Krewe of Erin Board has made changes to our Royal Court System.

On October 30, 2022 we will crown 4 NEW Shenanigans and Hooligans Festival Celtic Heritage Queens, from Jr division up to Ms division. These CONTRACTED Queens will travel the state of Louisiana, promoting our Festival and representing our organization. Our Miss Queen will have the opportunity to run for the LAFF Queen (Queen of all Fairs and Festivals) in February of 2023. 

The age divions shall be:

Jr- 12-14 years old

Teen-  15-17 years old

Miss- 18-23 years old, must be single,never married, no children

Ms - 24 years old and up, married or single

Applicants do NOT have to be memberes of KoE, nor do they have to be Celtic. They will be asked some Celtic info, and beginning in 2024, there will be a study guide they will have to learn. 

KoE DOES have standards, which we expect to be followed PER stated in applications and contracts. Failure to comply with the contract, will be met with consequences, including having the crown forfeited and given to the first runner up. Contracts WILL be signed after the pageant, on October 30, 2022. Failure to do so, will cause the title to be forfeited.

You can get a copy of the application at THIS LINK, or by using the Code below

Also, as of October 30th, the former traditional KoE Royal Court, shall be moved from representing the organization, into a more traditional Parade Court.

The St Patrick Parade Queen and her Parade Court, shall reign over the Cart Raid and St Patrick Parade ONLY. 

KOE Parade Court members MUST be members of KoE, and must pay the seperate Court Admisssion fee.

They will receive a crown and banner, or medal (for boys).
