The Queen and Her Court

Since the first year of the Hudson St. Patrick’s Parade in 2009, a young woman is selected Queen of the annual parade. The selection evening is a public-speaking contest that focuses on Irish heritage and community involvement.

This year’s Queen’s Selection Night will be held on Sunday, Feb. 24, at the Auberge Willow Inn, where a panel of judges will decide who will reign as Queen of the 2019 parade. Her court, which will consist of princesses, will also be selected.

Applications are now being accepted. To apply, candidates must simply fill out the online form below.

The Queen and her court must be available for the following events:

  • The Grand Marshal’s Roast & Toast on Saturday, March 2, at the Whitlock Golf & Country Club
  • The Irishwoman of the Year Gala on Saturday, March 9, at the Whitlock Golf & Country Club
  • Hudson’s St. Patrick’s Parade on Saturday, March 16, from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m.
