Watch Palm Springs’ Desert Queens Work the Runway

These Drag Shows are Truly Dazzling

Written by: Lauren Villa  Palm Springs Drag Shows

Palm Springs is the place to be. Not only because it is a sunny desert paradise influenced by the glamour of Old Hollywood, but also because the city is bedazzled with some of the country’s best live drag shows. Whether you’re local or visiting, you can make your week or weekend even trendier by checking out star-studded performances by some of the desert’s most infamous queens: Jersey Shore, Bella da Ball and Jayla D. Foxx. Picture it now: you, cheering on the valley’s most talented—cocktail in hand. Now, tell me that’s not the perfect recipe for an unforgettable weekend.

Toucans Tiki Lounge

Toucans is synonymous with drag here in the desert. Every Sunday, this bar hosts a powerful disco bar brunch. The show is free and it’s held outside on the outdoor patio; you can always expect a full house.
