Race for the Tiara

Race for the Tiara is an annual fund raiser featuring a friendly fun drag competition show that started in 1984. In it’s early days Race for the Tiara was held in the living room of a Cambridge apartment enjoyed by small group of friends. As time passed the crowds grew and the idea to make an impact in the community was born. 

Every year performers grace the stage and compete as they try to be the best entertainer. In addition there are raffle prizes to be won! Join us as we donate the funds raised during this event to a local charity who tries to better our community.

Highly encouraged to bring cash, so you can make it rain on your favorite queens and, to buy raffle tickets for some great prizes!
