DRAG A THON: Day Drag

Day of Snags and Drag with 5 hours non stop DRAG A THON
Presented by The 86 Cabaret Bar
 
Sat 27 Jan 3pm – 1am
The 86 Cabaret Bar, 185 Smith St, Fitzroy

The 86 has moved the event DRAG A THON - Day Drag to Saturday 27 January.

"The 86 has held annual Australia Day events during the Midsumma Festival since we opened the venue in 2012. However, we have made the decision to close trade on Friday 26 January 2018. The 86 will not be holding any celebratory activity on this day in respect for Australia's Indigenous people. We acknowledge that a national day of celebration should be a day when all people are included so that together we can celebrate our native environment, arts, culture and way of life." – Anthony Wallace, Venue Owner The 86.

The 86 is proud to bring back non stop drag for the 2018 Midsumma Festival.

Following last year's massive Guinness World Record achievement with 'DRAG A THON' running non stop for nearly 37 hours to set the world record, this year we invite you to join us for a 'Day of Drag' with a free BBQ from 3pm followed by an afternoon of Drag open stage for anyone wanting to tread the boards and compete to be the last day drag standing?

Then at 8pm the curtain raises for a night of NON STOP DRAG as we present 'DRAG A THON....the 5 hour edition!'

Our regular cast of Friday night's 'Fellas in Frocks' along with special guests will present 300 minutes of non stop drag, song after song, with a Queen or King on stage from 8pm right through till 1am.

For more details about the day and to register your interest in performing or reserving a table please see The 86 website

Every Friday night at The 86 during Midsumma Festival (except 26 January), you can take advantage of Free Entry to the 'Fellas in Frocks' show at The 86, with a massive day of drag on Saturday 27 January.
