Miss America 1933, the eighth Miss America pageant, was held at the Boardwalk Hall in Atlantic City, New Jersey on Saturday, September 9, 1933. This was the first competition since postponing the event after the 1927 contest.[1]

Marian Bergeron, Miss Connecticut, was chosen Miss America but there was so much confusion during and after the vote tabulations that nobody informed Marian she had won. She was unaware of her victory until the dressing assistants placed the banner on her.[2] She was the pageant's youngest winner at age 15.

The pageant was financially unsuccessful and did not return the following year. 1935 was the next year the Miss America Pageant was held in Atlantic City.[3]
