The Happy Man Bitters Miss Upper East beauty pageant is in its fifth year. Over the past five years, the Miss Upper East Ghana pageant has concentrated on showcasing the culture of the Upper East Region through a variety of native dances, songs, and languages, food, clothing, and stories.
During the contests, the participants, drawn from municipalities and districts across the country are able to showcase the culture and traditions in the Upper East Region with specific interest to the areas the participants are drawn from.
The beauty pageant is organised by Ayelbis Events. Charger Industries, producer of Happy Man Bitters has supported the pageant since 2019.
