The United Irish Societies of Montreal has organized a contest to select a Queen and Court for the annual parade since 1956. Originally it was called the Queen’s Pageant and was held at the Sailor’s Club in Old Montreal. Today the Selection Evening is a public speaking event offering an opportunity for women 18 – 27 years of age (this year only, we extended the age limit by 2 years due to Covid) to explore their Irish roots and their community and network with the who’s who of Montreal.
The event will take place on Saturday, Feb 4th, 2023 at 7:00 PM at Evo on Robert Bourassa Blvd
