Winter Queen is the name of the beauty pageant contest organised every year during the Winter Carnival. Over the years, the contest has gained significant popularity across the country. Reports even suggest that women from many different states appear for the auditions to take part in this beauty pageant.

The Winter Queen contest is organised in the heart of Manali city, in an open-air amphitheatre. The participants showcase a fusion of western-style attires and traditional clothing of Himachal Pradesh to compete in an eccentric round of the contest.
