Dragfort is the Queer Dream Destination at Treefort 2024!

At Dragfort, we elevate and celebrate LGBTQIA+ culture and the magic of expressing our most authentic selves.

It’s more than just drag, parties, and performance (though it’s definitely that!) – it’s about creating a space for everyone to be themselves. Join late night parties, drag extravaganzas, and festival-wide activations made for community building, cultural education, and personal expression.

Dragfort is all about creating safe spaces for queer people across the spectrum to feel acknowledged, affirmed, and supported. Allies and those looking to reach a higher understanding of the LGBTQIA+ community are always welcome to participate and enjoy Dragfort events.

Here are a few tips to help you join in the excitement that comes with all Dragfort events:

💖 CONSENT IS SEXY!! Do NOT touch the performers, especially their hair!!!  (Yes, it is real – not a wig). You shouldn’t be touching anyone unless you have their enthusiastic consent. It’s easy to get carried away in such a lively atmosphere, but remember to respect the performers and your fellow audience members. 

💖 MONEY PLEASE!!! These performers are giving it their all. Show them some love in the form of $1 and $5 bills if they are giving you life…or go big with a $20 if they knocked your fanny pack off!  

💖 DON’T BE SHY! When you see something incredible, show them you love it! Clap, scream and shout for these performers, they LOVE an active audience. Share the joy and excitement of the show with the rest of the crowd, and be in the moment! Dress up: these performers are serving looks with a full face of glam, so you can show a little flare as well if you would like. You can never have too much sparkle and glitz!!!

💖 SHARE THE MOMENT! Bring a friend or make a new one at the show. This is a totally inclusive space, and we love new fans and new friends. It’s going to be a night to remember, so share that moment with your besties. Feel free to snap photos and videos and tag your fave performers, unless otherwise instructed by a Dragfort host.

Find queens and kings sashaying, posing and performing Thursday 3/21 and Saturday 3/23 at The Balcony (21+) during the festival.
