RuPaul's DragCon to Return to LA in 2022

RuPaul's DragCon LA is returning for its 10th in-person convention - bringing charisma, uniqueness, nerve and talent to the Los Angeles Convention Center for the fiercest year yet. The convention will take place Friday, May 13th - Sunday, May 15th, featuring, for the very first time, a full day of programming on Friday. Tickets are on sale now here.

"I'm so excited that our tribe will be safely reunited once again." says RuPaul, "RuPaul's DragCon is the most gorgeous, most gagworthy and most life-affirming drag convention on the planet, and our aim is to serve you a super amazing experience, while keeping you as safe as possible."

"The 2022 LA convention marks the first time ever we will be featuring a full-day of Friday programming for the three-day convention," says WOW co-founders Randy Barbato and Fenton Bailey. "With our last DragCon having been a virtual experience, we are thrilled to be bringing our flagship in-person event back to the community we love so dearly, and rest assured safety will be our top priority!"

DragCon's first priority is always the health and safety of everyone involved. Given how quickly information and safety requirements surrounding COVID-19 are changing, specific COVID guidelines will be determined closer to the event.
