The Montevideo Fiesta, Inc. Royalty Program offers individuals the opportunity to impact, influence, and enrich our community. As we celebrate our relationship with our Sister City in Montevideo, Uruguay, one of the components of the week is the crowning of the Montevideo Fiesta Days Royalty. There will be three individuals crowned, one queen and two princesses. These individuals will take on the duty of representing the City of Montevideo for the next year at various festivals around Minnesota and South Dakota.


They will participate in local community events to promote volunteerism and leadership within the community of Montevideo. At the end of their reign, each individual will be awarded a scholarship to use for schooling. If the queen fulfills all duties throughout the year-long reign, she will have the opportunity to attend Minneapolis Aquatennial as a candidate as well.
