Louisville, KENTUCKY, (August 26, 2020) – Kentuckiana Pride Foundation (KPF) partners with Paristown – Imagine a Place and The Café to kick-off derby week with a socially distanced inspired drag dinner event. Some of the proceeds from the event will benefit the Louisville Youth Group (LYG). Tickets can be purchased online via Event Brite and costs are based on reserved table seating ranging from $30 to $120. The event will take place at Christy’s Garden in Paristown on Wednesday, September 2, 2020 starting at 7:00 PM and will end at 9:00 PM (Eastern).
Paristown and KPF are partnering once again to bring a new event to the Louisville area—dinner and drag! Some local restaurants have experienced success in offering drag brunches, but how about drag dinner? KPF wanted to put a spin on the traditional drag brunch by working with Paristown to offer an evening of fun. Previously, Paristown and KPF brought Drag Queens on Ice to the Louisville area and are excited to feature this new event.
Several local drag entertainers and artists have agreed to come aboard and provide the entertainment for the evening. The event will feature performances by Leah Halston, Gilda Wabbit, Vanessa Demornay, Karmen Kazzi, Nicole Jackson Valentino, and Syimone. Derby inspired food and beverage will be available for purchase at the event. All staff, guests, and entertainers are requested to practice safe social distancing as posted and recommended throughout the event.
The KPF mission is to provide a forum for creative expression and education related to the Lesbian, Gay, Bisexual, Transgender, and Queer (LGBTQ) community in Louisville Metropolitan Area and to give back through charitable and in-kind donations.
