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 Star, 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.
The competition will be followed by a DJ spinning tunes until 5.30pm so sit back, grab a drink at a local venue and enjoy.

We hope to see you in Acland for what will be a bright, fun and celebratory event!
