The Ms. Accordion San Francisco Pageant tm

All Things Accordion, in association with the historic Cannery at Fisherman's Wharf are pleased to present the Ms. Accordion San Francisco Pageant; a fun and exciting event happening as part of the 14th Annual San Francisco Accordion Festival tm on June 5, 2004 in the Del Monte Courtyard at the Cannery.

The Pageant has been a favorite event during festivals past but for the past few years was put on hold. We are very excited to be reviving this "only in San Francisco" tradition where contestants vie for this glorious title. In addition to the prestige of being Ms. Accordion San Francisco, the winner and runner ups will receive fabulous prizes from local merchants.

Entering the Pageant is free and all interested participants may contact All Things Accordion for an application. This event is open to both men and women.

The Pageant will take place during the Accordion festival, with the semi finals in the early afternoon and the finals later in the afternoon. Contestants will be asked what they like about playing the accordion, why they should be the winner and then will be asked to perform a selection of their choice. The audience will judge semi-finalists and the winner.
