San Antonio Queen of Soul, Inc., a member of the San Antonio Fiesta Commission, is a chartered, non-profit, non-political organization.  Our pageant and scholarship programs promote one of the core objectives of the organization: to enhance representation for the African-American community in the city of San Antonioís annual Fiesta celebration and various other civic activities.  


The organizationís conception in the late 1960s was the idea of several civic-minded individuals who sought to address the lack of involvement from the African-American community in the many Fiesta activities. The Board of Directors requested membership in the Fiesta Commission and, once accepted, began its annual ritual of holding a pageant and reception for its contestants.


In preparation for the annual pageant, potential contestants are solicited from schools, churches and a variety of other sources in the San Antonio area.  The primary purpose of the organization is to provide scholarship programs that help emphasize the importance of education and aid motivated young women in attaining their academic goals.  The pageant and scholarship programs identify and assist young ladies in the achievement of excellence in their future paths.  Once selected, our training program reinforces charm, poise, talent enhancement, personal hygiene and self-esteem with our contestants. 


The pinnacle of the organizationís efforts is the Queen of Soul Pageant and Reception.  The selected Queen and her Court then represent the organization in the many exciting activities during Fiesta and numerous civic events throughout the year.  The pageant is designed to create enthusiasm in our young ladies and help them to be aware of their beauty, perfect self-confidence and intellectual abilities.  Each lady in the program is a true representative of her community, school and church. 


We are extremely pleased to be a member of the San Antonio Fiesta Commission, serving for over forty-eight  years.  The Commissionís support is invaluable and we appreciate its continued investment in our growth as a community organization and inclusion as a participating member in all facets of the cityís Fiesta activities. We also thank all of our other dedicated supporters for your constant and continuous encouragement.
