The Former Queens organization is comprised of a group of women who have all had the honor of serving as Queen of the Snows for the Saint Paul Winter Carnival. Membership is open to those that have served in the role of Aurora, Queen of the Snows.
As a Minnesota 501(c)(3) Non-profit organization, the Former Queens engage in many fundraising activities in service to the community. In addition to the well-known annual Queen's Tea, the Former Queens has been a major supporter of several organizations including the the Children's Home Society & Family Services.
Each January, five ladies will be chosen to serve as Aurora, Queen of the Snows and the North Wind, East Wind, West Wind and South Wind Princesses. These five Royal Women will be given the opportunity to be public relations ambassadors for this community and travel around the state of Minnesota as well as nationally, to spread the lore of our incredible community of Saint Paul! Being an ambassador for the city of Saint Paul is truly an opportunity of a lifetime!
