Miss Bicolandia is the oldest running and most prestigious beauty pageant in the Bicol Region, Philippines. It is held during the Peñafrancia Festival in the month of September in Naga City and is run by the city government. The pageant took a 2-year hiatus due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Miss Bicolandia is home to former beauty queens such as Miss Universe Philippines Venus Raj, Miss Supranational Philippines Yvette Santiago, and the late Miss International Philippines Melody Gersbach who successfully made a mark on the international stage. Congratulations to the newly crowned queen.
