DRAG’D OUT is a Queer, inclusive Festival of the Arts. It celebrates all people within the LGBTQI+ Community and their allies. The Festivals diversity will bring together people from all walks of life as a positive platform and safe space, enabling these cultures to explore themselves, educate audiences and spread the love with entertainment. We have engaged a youth component throughout the Festival and our local schools will also be involved, which is very important to us.
The inaugural event will be held over the weekend of the 18th, 19th, and 20th November 2022 in the picturesque township of Beechworth, in Victoria’s High Country.
Supporting local artists, we’ve also invited some of Australia’s headline drag performers and DJ’s to provide a professional and spectacular three days of drop-dead diva Drag, mixed with a fabulous pop of Disco darlings.
The Festival will kick off with a First Nations acknowledgment and smoking ceremony soon followed with a roving drag show across multiple venues throughout the township. DRAG’D ABOUT TOWN is your chance to meet the Divas up close and personal. Later, culminating together for a spectacular finish at the HIGH CAMP STREET PARTY with extra Drag Shows and spectacular DJ’s.
The Saturday day component will be roving performances with super camp games such as drag bingo & trivia, these events are free. Saturday Night will be a fabulous spectacular at the Memorial Hall with our headline event, “WINE N DINE DIVAS” a cabaret-style Drag show including the infamous PRISCILLA TRIBUTE SHOW. There’s a limited amount of VIP packages up for grabs, so don’t dally doll.
Sending the Saturday festivities into the star-studded night, we finish with THE AFTER PARTY where we can disco down with internationally renowned DJ’s plus more show-stopping Drag.
