The 2015 Mr. & Mrs. Punjabi USA Pageant will be held on Saturday, December 12. Heading into its third year, this important event is a highly respected beauty pageant and the first for married couples.
This event includes three judged segments. The first is the bridal wear. The second is for evening wear and the final competition is for Punjabi ethnic wear. Contestants typically come from conservative families in India, so they are allowed to dress in modest and conservative clothing.

Part of the proceeds from this year's event will go to local schools.
