Hamline University will host the inaugural Miss Juneteenth Minnesota State Pageant from 2 to 4 p.m. Saturday at Sundin Music Hall.

An awards dinner will follow beginning at 6 p.m. at the Cedars Hall event center in Minneapolis.

The pageant will crown winners in five divisions from ages 6 to 30, according to the Miss Juneteenth MN State Pageant website. The divisions include Little Miss Juneteenth, Junior Miss Juneteenth, Teen Miss Juneteenth, Miss Juneteenth and Ms. Juneteenth.

Each crowned contestant will be recognized at the awards ceremony and dinner.

Tickets, from $25 to $75, are available at or at Sundin Music Hall on the Hamline University campus. The Miss Juneteenth MN State Pageant is a 501(C)3 nonprofit organization that aims to expose girls, teens and adults to educational, networking and career opportunities.

The Juneteenth holiday commemorates June 19, 1865, when enslaved people in Galveston, Texas, learned they had been freed — two years after the Emancipation Proclamation was issued.
