FruitCake: Halloween

It’s time to get freaky! We are thrilled to be part of the opening weekend at the new Gotham Nightclub with a bang! 🎃

Gotham, located in downtown Kelowna, will be hosting the largest LGBT2Q+ Halloween Party Kelowna has ever seen and you’re invited. As always we welcome people of all gender identities and sexualities to FruitCake, so don’t be shy!

Prizes available for the best costumes – dress to impress!

There will be zombies, clowns and some surprise interactive experiences happening throughout the night. Sparkle, Freida Whales and Jenna Telz will have a less than typical skit on the new stage at Gotham. This performance is definitely not the lip sync vibe you are used to and we are very excited to have this as a part of the night. You’ll have to show up to learn more!

Rocking the night with the best music is DJ Roberto Styles. He will be pumping the tunes starting at 9 pm and running until 2 am.

Advance tickets are ONLY $10 +GST and fees.

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.
