Show your colours at Night Shift: Pride, our newest 19+ event, and the best Pride Party on Vancouver Island!
Get ready to celebrate with three full floors of extraordinary entertainment. Downstairs, DJ Ronny B, and later, Tigress, will pack the lobby dance floor with high-energy club anthems, Top 40, tech, house and everyone’s favourite throwbacks. On the second floor, DJ Applecat will weave a mythic underworld vibe in the glittering Enchanted Forest.
Upstairs, Madame Gouda Gabor and her bordello babes, Vivian Vanderpuss and Lola Meneta, will shake up the quiet streets of Old Town with raucous and raunchy performances, while Drag Kings and Queens Eddi Liscious, Persi Flage and Henrietta Dubét strut their stuff throughout the galleries.
Vogue-master Ralph Escamillan will be on hand for a lesson or two, and when you need to recover your swagger, take a break at the craft stations, photo booths, and archival displays documenting the history of Pride. Fuel up with on-site food and drinks to keep the night going strong!
