Draghathon Griz Bar
Once again, Fernie’s most fabulous Drag Queens and Kings hit the slopes to shine a rhinestoned spotlight on suicide in the Elk Valley. Last year, with the support of the Fernie Alpine Resort and Fernie PRIDE, our Drag Stars raised over $10,000 for the Elk Valley Suicide Task Force to create a Grief Support for friends and families dealing in the wake of suicide.
This March, the Fernie Dragathon returns with a full-blown extravaganza of events and festivities in the lead-up to the Mighty Moose Dragathon to raise money and awareness for mental health support services in our community and blow wide open the conversation surrounding suicide in the Elk Valley.
The week will hit a fever pitch with The Mighty Moose Dragathon, a ski fundraiser like no other! With pageantry and poise, a stunning lineup of Drag Kings and Queens will hit the slopes to sashay their way down Fernie’s most notorious run… The Mighty Moose. The event has evolved into a must-see Drag Extravaganza featuring live performance and hilarious entertainment well into the evening.
The fun will roll on into the night as the world-famous Griz Bar hosts our Queens, Kings, and community for the fabulous After Show! With Covid restrictions easing, get ready to slay on the dance floor, as the iconic Edmonton Drag Queens the Nuff Family perform for the first time ever in Fernie! So get your thigh-high burgundy heels from out of the closet and get ready to party like never before at the Griz Bar.
