The 2014 Miss America Competition Returns to
Atlantic City, New Jersey
Live from Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall on ABC,
Sunday, September 15th
Dear State Executive Directors:
It is our pleasure to announce the dates for the 2014 Miss America Competition! We will once again return to our pageant’s home in Atlantic City, New Jersey.
The three nights of preliminaries will take place in Atlantic City’s Boardwalk Hall on September 10, 11 and 12 with the final broadcast live on ABC Sunday, September 15!
This historic return to Atlantic City will be a monumental event complete with our much anticipated Miss America “Show Us Your Shoes Parade” on Saturday, September 14.
Currently, we are working with the tourism groups in Atlantic City to create special discounted room rates for our Miss America family and we will announce it shortly on a first come/ first serve basis once that has been finalized.
In addition, ticket forms for priority seating and discounted season tickets for our Miss America State Organizations and contestant’s families and friends will be made available in the coming months. The general public on-sale date will be announced at a later time.
This office will continue to support the Miss America's Outstanding Teen Pageant in Orlando in August. Even though the two national competitions are very close it is important that the entire country continue to support them. Although we do not know at this moment if there will be a requirement for your state titleholder to attend, we certainly hope you will send them to support their little sisters. It is anticipated that Tall Pony Productions will once again attend to update the 2014 National Contestants concerning Atlantic City. As in prior years, State Executive Director attendance is encouraged, however it is optional.
The details for the National Contestants official arrival day in Atlantic City are still being considered and you will be notified as soon as everything is confirmed.
We are so excited to share the announcement with you and sincerely thank you for your help and your continued support. As you now prepare for your State Pageants this summer, we wish you continued success and look forward to creating an incredible new era in our organization's history as we return to our birthplace, Atlantic City, New Jersey this September live on ABC!
