FruitCake: Moist

FruitCake is about to get very WET. This is FruitCake: Moist AKA the official afterparty for MOIST 2.0 + Level Nightclub.

We’re holding the event on the 3rd floor of the club previously known as Level with Dj Roberto Styles.

Admission is $10 at the door (no pre-sales due to limited capacity). Please enter via the back alley. Unfortunately, the venue is not accessible as there are steep stairs to gain access.

Please note that there will not be a drag performance at this FruitCake but there will be some queens in attendance.

FruitCake: Offstage

Event Title: FruitCake: Offstage

 

You can never have too much FruitCake in your life… It’s true! With that in mind, we’re bringing FruitCake back for one very special night this coming long weekend. This is FruitCake: Offstage (AKA the unofficial afterparty for DIVA).

If you’re attending the DIVA show, present your ticket at FruitCake and you’ll get VIP access (jump ahead of the line). However, capacity is limited so you’ll want to arrive as soon as possible.

We’re holding the event on the 3rd floor of the club previously known as Level – the same space where we had so much fun at FruitCake: Pride – and Slim Tyme will be spinning tracks (Slim Tyme also performed at the Kelowna Pride Festival).

Admission is $10 at the door (no pre-sales). Please enter via the back alley. Unfortunately, the venue is not accessible as there are steep stairs to gain access.

Don’t let those post-Pride blues get you down, come on down for an evening of great fun at FruitCake: Offstage! See you on Saturday.

Please note that there will not be a drag performance at this FruitCake. This event has no affiliation with the Diva drag show.

This is a 19+ event.

‘Drag Race’ Star to Visit Kelowna for One-Night-Only!

For Immediate Release
March 28, 2019

(Kelowna, BC) Tatianna, a star of RuPaul’s Drag Race season 2, will be visiting Kelowna for a special one-night-only performance on May 11, 2019.

The American drag queen is being brought to the city by Kelowna-based event production company Rebellious Unicorns as part of their on-going FruitCake series, a monthly inclusive night club party. Dustyn Baulkham, the Executive Producer of Rebellious Unicorns, explains why he is excited to bring Tatianna to Kelowna:

“It’s important to bring in prominent LGBT2Q+ icons into our communities for a variety of reasons. People like Tatianna are role models for so many in the LGBT2Q+ community. It shows that as an OUT LGBT2Q+ person you can have great success. Our local Drag performers are some truly talented humans and events like this can help them grow professionally by meeting and learning from those who have had such success. Our last three FruitCake events have sold out in advance, and I know this event will be no different. It will be another fantastic night and I can’t wait to see Tatianna hit the stage!”

Tatianna burst to fame on season 2 of RuPaul’s Drag Race. Fans may remember that Tatianna was regularly complimented as one of the “prettiest” on season 2, but this gift was also part of her challenge as she was critiqued for relying too heavily on her looks. However, she won resounding praise for her spectacular Britney Spears performance in the Snatch Game.

Tatianna, who has a reputation for being controversial and speaking her mind, returned to screens for RuPaul’s All Stars 2, and on May 11 she’s performing in Kelowna. Rebellious Unicorns is also bringing Tatianna to Kamloops on May 10. During both shows, Tatianna will be performing with a number of Okanagan based drag queens, including Sparkle and Freida Whales.

Tickets for both the Kelowna and Kamloops show go on sale on April 2nd at 11 a.m. and can be purchased on the Rebellious Unicorns website. Tickets are $35 for General Admission and $55 for a VIP Meet and Greet (photo opportunity with Tatianna). Tickets are subject to GST and a ticketing fee.

The Kelowna performance will be taking place at 275 Leon Ave (formerly the site of Level Nite Club, but soon to be relaunched). While the Kamloops performance is at the Duchess Club at 377 Tranquille Road. Please note; FruitCake: Tatianna is a 19+ event.
