Cloverdale Citrus Fair Queen Scholarship Program

  • Friday, February 14, 2020 at 7:30 pm in the Main Auditorium
  • The first Cloverdale Citrus Fair Queen was Mary Bettini, chosen in 1924. She was chosen because she sold the most tickets. Since then, some things have changed. The emphasis of the Citrus Fair Queen Pageant is scholarship opportunity. The scholarship portion of the pageant has been named the Dorothy Smith Memorial Scholarship, memorializing a past director who spent many hours to make the pageant a beautiful and competitive event.
