South Carolina

Watermelon Queen

The South Carolina Watermelon Queen Tour is part of an overall promotional effort of the South Carolina Watermelon Association to increase sales.  The South Carolina Watermelon Queen is selected annually.  

The competition takes place in conjunction with the annual South Carolina Watermelon Convention.  

The Queen spends her year traveling to cities all over South Carolina and across the nation, talking to people in supermarkets, at fairs and festivals, telling everyone about the nutritional benefits and economical values of watermelon.

The Queen is available for media appearances, schools, in-store promotions, fairs, festivals or functions where watermelon is featured.

Please contact the South Carolina Queen Coordinator, Ann Bryant, at for any promotional requests.
