Who Is Queen Isabella?
The outgoing court will serve until the crowning of the new queen at
the Columbus Day Grand Ball
in San Francisco.
Our Queen Isabella is the typical Italian-American young woman. She symbolizes our community in her dreams, ambitions, and ideals. She will represent the Columbus Day Celebration and Italian Heritage Parade and our community for the duration of the Celebration at various functions and events.
What does it mean to be Queen Isabella?
Queen Isabella is the primary focal point of the Columbus Day Celebration. She should recognize and represent the ideals of the Italian-American community – hard work, the importance of family and religion, and a love of life. Former Queen Isabellas and their Courts look upon the experience as unforgettable and once-in-a-lifetime. Simply portraying a member of the Court lends itself to feeling regal.
How is Queen Isabella selected?
A panel of judges in an interview setting chooses Queen Isabella. They are looking for poise, personality, grace, and pride in her heritage.
