About The 2024 Oaklash FestivaL

The Oaklash Festival is the Bay Area's favorite annual celebration of drag and queer performance. Our 2024 Festival will feature a full weekend of nonstop DRAG including live performance, DJs, artists, music, dancing, vendors and more Friday May 17th - Sunday May 19st! Kings, queens, and queers from all over the Bay Area and beyond will join together for this celebration of local queer culture. Check out our full lineup of events here.

Tickets

All Oaklash events are NOTAFLOF: No One Turned Away For Lack of Funds, though limited tickets may be available at the door so pre-sales are encouraged! 

 

All revenue at our gates and pre-sale registrations sold through Eventbrite are suggested donations which go to support our artists, event staff, production fees, and overhead costs. There are no refunds. All surplus proceeds help Oaklash provide resources and opportunities for queer and trans artists in the Bay Area all year round, and ensure that we can continue to keep our festival going for years to come!

All Oaklash panels and workshops are entirely free! Pre-sale tickets for our shows this year start at $20 but discounted full weekend passes are available at $50 for a limited time! Click here to get yours now!

Age Restrictions

All Oaklash Festival events are 21+ except for our Block Party on Saturday May 18th which will feature only performances that our artists deem appropriate for all ages.

Block Party attendees under the age of 18 should be accompanied by an adult. Parents and families are encouraged not to post photos of their children with drag performers online, both for the safety of the children and performers.

Accessibility

All Oaklash performances will be ASL interpreted!

All Oaklash events will take place at ADA-compliant venues, though access to some areas may be limited by stairs.

There will be an accessible area at the front of all stages which is prioritized for those who need seating options, wheelchair access, or visibility to ASL interpreters.
