About the Events

NWA Equality brought local drag shows out of nightclubs, making drag accessible to a new audience with Arkansas' first Drag Bingo in 2010. Today, the Dickson Divas have expanded their season to drag brunches, children's storytimes, and other charitable activities, turning the art form into theatrical productions and comedy events and placing their events at the forefront of Northwest Arkansas' social calendar. Some of these shows feature educational themes, special guests, and celebrities like Trixie Mattel, Shangela, and Trinity Taylor, but every show is guaranteed to be a glittering time of laughs and fun that help NWA Equality raise necessary funds for our programs and operations.

Tickets and season passes are available by clicking on the box office link.

Drag Bingo

Hosted by legendary Northwest Arkansas entertainers Arin Austin and Taylor Madison Monroe, along with their team of queens, this original and lively event directly supports each of the NWA Equality’s support programs. Through lively musical productions and zany shenanigans, since 2010 this annual comedy show has grown to be one of our most popular events.

Ozarks Dine & Drag

You asked for it, and in 2019 we delivered. The Ozarks Dine & Drag is your Sunday family-friendly program of brunch or dinner, booze, and bouffants with some of Arkansas' finest drag performers.

The Arkansas Alumni Drag Brunch is organized and hosted annually in the autumn by the University of Arkansas Pride Society at the Janelle Y. Hembree Alumni House. This brunch funds the Pride in Education Scholarship and the Pride Alumni Society Scholarship for LGBTQ students at the University of Arkansas. Northwest Arkansas Equality continues to support these scholarships and events.

Holidazzle Divas

It's the newest and cutest venture where the halls are decked, the Christmas lights are on, and the Holidazzle Divas are ready to fill you with cheer at Fayetteville’s only pop-up Christmas cocktail bar! Grab a craft cocktail, some snacks from Persephonē on Wheels, and hang out with these Christmas queens!


Holidaze is a Christmas and Holiday themed charitable pop-up cocktail lounge, operated by Ben Gitchel and Hannah Withers.
