Festival Drag Performances

Atlanta is home to a myriad of talented drag performers who showcase their abilities at multiple venues across the city. There are very few locales that are untouched by the impact of the drag community. Atlanta Pride seeks to showcase these talented folx in two Cabarets that are hosted during the Atlanta Pride Festival.

Shooting Stars Cabaret

Atlanta has so much drag talent, and just not enough room to house it all under one show. We believe in showcasing as much talent and entertainment as we can, so the Shooting Stars Cabaret was born. This show is for both established and up and coming drag entertainers (by audition).
