Witness the crowning of Acland’s Drag Star!
In celebration of Pride March, Acland Street Village would love to invite you to Acland’s Drag Derby, a family-friendly, emerging drag competition in Acland Plaza from 2.30pm – 4pm on Sunday 4 February.
No stranger to competitions herself, the event is hosted by the radiant and larger-than-life drag queen, Brenda Bressed, who etched her name in the entertainment world as a standout contestant on Season 12 of The Voice Australia.
She’ll be joined on the back of a beautiful old mobile Dodge stage truck, by the wonderful artists as they sing, dance and strut their stuff, vying for the title of Acland’s Drag Star, winning great prizes.
We’ll also be in the presence of drag royalty, with judges, Della Katessen and Freddie Merkin in attendance PLUS, there will also be a guest appearance from Lady Gaga (impersonator) – singing and face painting!
Lovely local business, Cosmetic Tattooing and We Love Facepainting will also be glamming attendees up with their glitter stall. Zoma Beauty & Makeover Lounge will also be in attendance, providing henna services.
Following the competition, DJ Eadie will be spinning tunes until 5.30pm so sit back, grab a drink at a local venue and enjoy.
INCLEMENT WEATHER VENUE: If weather is deemed too hot or event is rained out, we will be moving to Veludo, upstairs, at 175 Acland Street (a hop skip and jump from where stage is located)
We hope to see you in Acland for what will be a bright, fun and celebratory event!
This event is proudly supported by the City of Port Phillip Cultural Development Fund.
