The Oaklash Festival is the Bay Area's premier celebration of drag and queer performance


Our 2023 festival will feature panels and workshops throughout the month of May leading up to a full weekend of nonstop DRAG including live performance, DJs, artists, music, dancing, vendors and more Friday May 19th - Sunday May 21st! Kings, queens, and queers from all over the Bay Area and beyond will join together for this annual celebration of local queer culture.
