What is Coronation and how did it begin?

Coronation is the last event to be held during the Imperial year. It celebrates the beginning of UCPPE. The Monarchs have worked hard all year, and they step down with their friends and family from all over the Imperial Court System. UCPPE celebrates an entire weekend of events.

Coronation Weekend also starts the new year for the next Reign. The newly elected Monarchs are brought into the ballroom and crowned at the end of the event. This next coronation will crown the new Emperor/Empress/Emprx XLVIII (48).

In prior years, Coronation was scheduled in June. The cost to host Coronation in June became increasingly expensive due to the popularity of the summer months, therefore Coronation was moved to November.

Coronation is a chance for the current reigning Monarchs to honor their friends that have been inspirational throughout the year with a special request of a command performance. Command Performers get the opportunity to perform at different parts of the evening on Coronation Night. Since Reign XXXI, the UCPPE allows for only ten command performers to have appropriate time management throughout the event.

Coronation is an event where the community is presented the results from Voting Day. At the end of the night, results are presented for the new members of the Board of Advisors in the at-large role, as well as the new reigning Emperor/Empress/Emprx.

  • Coronation was originally held in June.
  • Coronation was held in several hotels for many years.
    • During Reign XXIV Coronation was held at the Sheraton. During Reign XXXI, the Sheraton changed to the Crown Plaza hotel. Coronation has been hosted by this hotel for over ten years. Coronation is currently held at the Antlers Hotel.
  • Coronation is a Board Function
    • Coronation is supervised by the Board of Advisors. Just like other State Functions, Coronation is started by a greeting from the President of the Board of Advisors. The Monarchs appoint a Coronation Coordinator to make sure the event runs smoothly. Once the event starts, the Monarchs are on the Dias and have no time to make any other planning decisions.

The In-Town Show

Usually, the Thursday before Coronation, the In-Town Show is chance for the Monarchs to honor all the people who helped the reign hold success over the year.  Awards and Certificates are given to In-Town Regents and Line Members.

Out Town Show and Bus Tour

The Out of Town Show was held at the hotel for some years, but the space needed along with the cost became too cumbersome. The Out of Town Show is currently held at (pending location) during the Bus Tour, Show time TBD.


Coronation starts at 5:00pm. Colorado Springs has prided itself on hosting a buffet dinner where guests start eating an hour before the event starts. After the traditional opening ceremonies, guests are welcome to continue eating from the buffet until the end of second set. The Guests will see talented Command Performers, witness the majesty of In-Town and Out-of-Town walks of Regents, Businesses and Organizations. The Monarchs give out Lifetime Awards and have one last evening sitting on the Imperial thrones. The newly elected Monarchs are crowned at the end of the event.

Victory Brunch

Victory Brunch is the Sunday afterwards. We invite guests to attend a buffet. The event is designed to be both comfortable as well as elegant. The stepping down Monarchs give out more awards to in-town and out-of-town guests. The newly elected Monarchs are given a chance to welcome their new Reign. They announce their reign theme, colors, and the theme and date of their stepping down Coronation. During Victory Brunch  the Emperor/Empress/Emprx of the reign also dub their new Prince/Princess/Princet Royal.
