About Jones county Heritage Pageant

In 2015, under the direction of Jennifer Powell, we hosted our inaugural 'Little Miss Heritage' pageant. After a brief hiatus, we are thrilled to announce the return of this beloved event to the 2024 Jones County Heritage Festival, now rebranded as the 'Jones County Heritage Pageant' under the direction of Dana Bender.

The aim of this pageant is to provide young women in North Carolina with a platform to showcase their talents, forge new friendships through friendly competition, and, above all, to enjoy themselves! We're excited to see the youth actively participate in festival activities and contribute to our heritage this year and in the years to come!
