The 2013 Miss Colonial Beach pageant was rescheduled to Saturday, June 8th due to weather. It immediately followed the Grand Feature parade and took place on the Town Stage. All pageant participants rode in the parade.

The Festival's theme for 2011 was "Now and Then" so some past Miss Potomac River Festival/Miss Colonial Beach winners took the stage with 2010's winner, Katie Pitts (pictured, right).

Spring 2023: Thoughts and prayers going out to family and friends of former Miss Colonial Beach, Suzann Wilson Lowe. May she rest in peace.
