 Hello from the Scarlett Darlin's, Desoto County's Sweet Potato Queens

Welcome to, home of the Scarlett Darlin's, Desoto County's Sweet Potato Queens. You may already know us as the Desoto County Sweet Potato Queens or DCSPQ. We've had a makeover, changing our name and our look. Don't we look ravishing, Darlin'?

 New Fittin' Room Message Board!

The Scarlett Darlin's have a message board fit for a queen called "The Fittin' Room".

We encourage other SPQ Chapters and all Wannabees to register and chat with us in our new room. And...we cannot stress this enough...we highly encourage anyone who would like to become a Beau to join!

 Who are the Scarlett Darlin's?

We're just a group of women from Desoto County, Mississippi who believe we deserve a crown as much as any beauty pageant winner only we aren't going to lower ourselves to grovel in front of a bunch of judges for it. We don our red wigs and tiaras and dress up in scarlet red, leopard print and black feathers all in the name of our adopted cause, Desoto Sunrise Homes.

Each and every one of us queens as well as the thousands of other queens in the 3,000 plus chapters worldwide travel to Jackson, Mississippi (the birthplace of The Sweet Potato Queens) every St. Patrick's day to participate in the big St. Paddy's Day Parade. There, we party like mad and pay our respects to the BOSS QUEEN, Jill Connor Browne, creator of The Sweet Potato Queens worldwide organization and author.
