Started in 1984 by a small group of Cebuano’s blessed with foresight.

Miss Cebu took on the task of promoting Cebu as a viable alternative tourist destination. This came at a time when the tourism in the Asia Pacific region was in a jumpstart and was an imperative tool for countries to woo inventors to their shores. Cebu’s leaders then understood that this Queen City of the South needed to join the bandowagon and position herself as an island blessed by mother nature with splendid resources that beckoned and nurtured tourism and trade.

Miss Cebu, the pageant, became not only an event Cebuano’s looked forward to, but also an effective vehicle to establish good relations with countries like Japan, Australia and Korea among others.

Hence, through typhoons, administration changes economic turmoil, the organizers continued to put
up the January pageant until it became a permanent must-see during the Sinulog fiesta week.

Although the candidates and eventually, the winners were those who stood out at social functions, in
academic circles and smalls, they were not randomly chosen. Not just any Cebuano entered the candidates’ circle.

before beauty because the Cebuano is known for being more than just a pretty face.
