This event has now finished

6-8 January 2023

The world’s biggest celebration of drag and queer culture, RuPaul’s DragCon, will sashay down to ExCeL for the very first time.

The three-day event, taking place on the 6th to 8th January 2023, will see a fabulous display of charisma, uniqueness, nerve, and talent take over the ExCel Exhibition centre to help ring in the new year.

With over 100 queens announced to attend the event, fans can be prepared to greet some of their favourite drag queens from around the globe, including Anita Wig’lit, Baga Chipz, Blu Hydrangea, Envy Peru, Gisèle Lullaby, Jinkx Monsoon, Krystal Versace, Lawrence Chaney, Pangina Heals, Precious Paula Nicole and The Vivienne.

In what's promised to be a cornucopia of drag excitement, there will be a gag-worthy appearance and exclusive DJ set from RuPaul Charles, fierce mainstage performances and programming, wig-snatching merch available to purchase and so much more. The highly anticipated ‘Queen’s Walk’ will take place at 10:30am on Friday 6th January, the iconic procession helps welcome all the queens to the convention centre as they walk the pink carpet.
