Introducing The Official Miss California Pin Program
What is the Miss California Pin Trading Program?

Miss California Pin Trading is an exciting, interactive experience where participants, family, friends and fans alike can trade Miss California pins with others to collect them all. It's fun for the everyone and creates cherished “pin pals” to last a lifetime! Start a new collection or exchange pins for the ones you've got your eye on.

How can I experience the enchantment?

It's simple and exciting! Just visit the Miss California website to purchase (numbers are limited, and only one per customer and address) or to trade at one of the many local or state events or fundraisers. Simply locate a staff member wearing a lanyard with Miss California pins and find a pin you'd like. Then present another Miss California pin to the staff member in trade. Bringing the excitement home, It’s that really that simple. Plus, we have some quick and easy parameters to help you trade at each event. (trading examples: two or more local pins may be traded for a limited-edition pin, or one limited edition pin may be traded for two local pins)

“Beginning the Trading Tradition”

Miss California hasn’t always offered collectible Miss California pins for each pageant year, but with the kickoff of the 2017 Miss California Pageant season, we’re beginning a new tradition for Miss California with Pin Trading. Along with sharing Miss California related stories with others, sharing and trading pins is a delightful tradition that can be passed down each generation. Make your mark with the inaugural 2017 pin set by collecting and trading the pins you love and treasure.

Which ones should I collect or trade?

The fun of Miss California Pin Trading will be in the amazing variety. There are 47 local pageants and one state final. Each will have its own unique pin, so find your favorite pins to personalize your Miss California experience. All are encouraged to hunt for their favorite designs and locations. Whether it's your local pageant, your favorite contestant or design; pin hunting is a great way to add adventures to your Miss California experience. Numbers are limited and will be gone once sold out and are exclusively available at the Miss California Pageant Concierge or limited availability online, so if the one you had your eye on is sold out, so go and find the pins you want, trade and make some new friends! It is all up to you! Have fun! Miss California Pin Trading is a great way to enhance the experience and share the pageantry and bring home wonderful Miss California memories.
