Watch one of Victoria’s most iconic landmarks be transformed from head to toe in celebration of Pride Week!

Each of the three floors of the Royal BC Museum will feature live entertainment from DJs, Drag Queens/Kings, Vogue-masters and more.

Entertainment up the wazoo

Downstairs, DJ Yeezy Yee (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 be weaving a mythic underworld vibe in the glittering Enchanted Forest.

Meanwhile upstairs, Madame Gouda Gabor and her bordello babes, Vivian Vanderpuss and Lola Maneata, will shake up the quiet streets of Old Town with raucous and raunchy performances, while local Victoria Drag Kings and Queens Eddi Liscious, Persi Flage and Henrietta Dubet strut their stuff throughout the galleries.

Take a break from the raucous revelry at craft stations, photo booths, and archival displays documenting the history of Pride.

And of course, there will also be on-site food and drinks to keep the night going strong.

With $40 and two pieces of ID, you’ll be ready to party the night away, Pride style, just one night before the city’s annual Victoria Pride Parade and Festival!

And we’ll be livestreaming the parade!
