After 22 years at the Ocean City Music Pier, the Miss NJ Education Foundation is moving 20 miles north to Resorts Casino Hotel in AC. At the same time, it’s still unclear if the Miss America Organization (MAO) will choose AC as its future hosting city.

As we recently reported, MAO is currently interviewing other cities to host the pageant. According to sources, the CRDA contributed $12 Million toward the annual event over the last three years. Unfortunately, there’s still no plan for 2020-21. However, the organization did renew the Miss NJ Foundation’s pageant license and move the event to AC.
Miss NJ Pageant at Resorts
The landscape in AC seems to change on a day to day basis. Just last month, Ocean Resorts Casino owner Bruce Deifik offered the MAO a future home at his casino in New Jersey. Then this week, he sells the property to an unidentified buyer! With that said, it looks like the MAO didn’t accept his offer. Even though Miss America and Miss New Jersey are two separate pageants, the MAO clearly made a deal with Resorts Casino instead.
On that note, the Foundation’s Executive Director David Holtzman had this to say, “Over the past few years, we’ve outgrown the Music Pier facility. Not to mention, we sell out of tickets every year, so it’s time to move ahead now. Plus, we’ll be doing things a little different this year. So, this move to Atlantic City is the next level for us. In fact, it’s unreal.”
Welcome to the Superstar Theater at Resorts
According to the schedule, the pageant will begin on June 9th, and the crowning will take place on the 15th. Afterwards, as Holtzman mentioned, the foundation will introduce something new this year. According to plan, the event will follow the Miss America 2.0 formant and host a new swimsuit-less event.
Which, will include on-stage interviews that focus on the contestant’s personality and not on looks alone. The Superstar Theater is a world-class stage that seats 1,350 people! So without a doubt, this summer’s is going to be huge for the foundation and Resorts!
