The Buggy Festival Queen is expected to act in a lady-like manner at all times. Use of profanity, drunkenness, rudeness or any conduct unbecoming to a Queen while representing the Buggy Festival and are recognized as such, will be grounds for immediate dismissal. The title will be revoked immediately and revert back to the Buggy Festival.

Marriage or pregnancy during the reign will result in immediate dismissal.

The Queen is required to participate in the Fairs and Festivals Association Queen of Queen's Pageant, usually held in February. The Festival will be responsible for the room, entry fee and registration of the Queen only.
