It's More Than Just 

About Us

 Miss Kentucky Bluegrass is truly a unique pageant experience in the fact it offers a talent avenue for those interested, focuses on the community service aspect, and the overall "girl" in everyone. To learn the GIFT of giving and helping others at such a young age is priceless and deserves to be showcased.  "It's More Than Just"  Miss Kentucky Bluegrass is proudly the sister pageant system to Kentucky Festival Pageants.

If you're new to the festival family , let me introduce myself ,  I'm Dianne Turner - originally from Eastern Kentucky, living in Madison County now for 20 years.  As a former pageant contestant and local and state winner myself, pageants have taught me to step outside my comfort zone as a very shy little girl. I have seen this countless times over the past 21 years as a director and a mother. As a former shy littler girl, through pageantry,  I gradually gained more and more self confidence, the ability to look someone in the eye, and speak in public (my biggest fear at the time). I won some- lost a lot , but more importantly I grew as a person. I worked with different organizations, volunteered my time, made appearances, and now I'm a 21 year pageant director. Miss Kentucky Bluegrass and Festival Pageants take pride in our focus on community service and faith based approached. My children Shelby and Sydney have helped out since they could walk- and now Grayson REALLY enjoys making new friends and taking over the microphone. MKB  strives to shed a new light on the pageant stigma, with positive pageantry and our devotion to community service.  Whether you've never been on the pageant stage or you're a life long fan, I do believe you will enjoy and gain friends form this experience. We are a faith based pageant system with an emphasis on community service and giving back. We hope to see you soon.

God Bless,

Dianne Turner
