We are excited to be hosting the second annual Little Miss Main Street Natural Pageant sponsored by Nixa Parks and Recreation and hosted by the Main Event Center at this year's annual Sucker Day Music, Arts, and Craft Festival hosted by the Nixa Chamber of Commerce!


Our hope is to find young ladies who represent Nixa Sucker Day's commitment to character excellence, community, and service. This pageant will be held in Main Event Center on May 22nd for ages newborn through 8th grade. There is a $50.00 (non-refundable) fee for each applicant.


There are two mandatory practices on May 11th and May 18th at 5PM at Main Event Center.
