If you come to New Orleans and don’t hit one of the city’s genre-defining drag performances, what are you even doing with your life? Lucky for you, we’re the epicenter of Southern drag, so it’s not hard to find the next New Orleans drag show. (Plus, we wrote you this handy calendar.)
Incredible performances happen almost daily at supportive venues like the Always Lounge. New queens, kings and nonbinary royals debut regularly, thanks to the New Orleans Drag Workshop. We even have a walking tour that explores Nola’s rich drag and femme history, NOLA Drag Tours, which we highly recommend.
So check out our New Orleans Drag Show Calendar for the latest shows, and go support these talented gender-bending performance artists. (Bring singles. Because tossing bills at at the talent is part of the fun 😉 And if you prefer following along on Facebook, the New Orleans Drag and Burlesque page does a great job keeping tabs on the scene.
Note: Drag doesn’t always fit into one easy category so our schedule includes lots of cross over events, including cabaret, burlesque, theater and any live entertainment show that might interest a drag fan. Click on the event to find out more.
Producers and Performers! Please email your shows to [email protected] to be added. We love feedback, shout out to your favorite queen in the comments!
