About Miss’d America

Miss'd America 2019

A not-to-be-missed entertainment event, the Miss’d America Pageant started in 1994 at a local Atlantic City club and was created as a spoof of the world-famous Miss America Pageant to raise funds for a local charity.

It took place annually on the night after that famous beauty pageant, the joke being that the drag performers ‘missed’ getting into the real pageant at Boardwalk Hall.  It ended in 2005 and was absent from Atlantic City for nearly five years, before making its triumphant return on January 31, 2010 and has grown larger and more spectacular every year since.

Over the years, The Miss’d America Pageant has been held at some amazing venues in Atlantic City, including:

Studio Six Nightclub 

Boardwalk Hall

Showboat (House of Blues)

Harrah’s Casino Concert Venue

Borgata Casino Hotel & Spa EVENT Center

Hard Rock Casino Atlantic City
