16th Annual Beaver Queen Pageant: Beavers in the Stream

The Beaver Queen Pageant is Durham’s own special mix of folly, pageantry, and humor. Contestants take on beaver personalities: Fur Pelton John, the Beave Whisperer, and Furrabella-Conchita Carramba. As with every Beauty Queen Pageant, the contestants introduce themselves in their wetlands ready wear, showcase their unique talent, and participate in an interview in their finest evening wear. Beav Aldrin, the 2014 Queen, performed an aerial routine on silks. Furrah Gnawsett-Major, the 2012 Queen, played the Star Wars theme on the clarinet while hula hooping. The physical distancing required due to COVID-19 might stop everyone from gathering in the meadow on the first Saturday of June, but it CANNOT and WILL NOT stop everyone from celebrating their inner beavers and local wetlands!

Instead of having the pageant on a single date, they will be streaming hot beavers over the course of four shorter online events -- May 30th, June 6th, 7th, and 13th.
