Make the Yuletide Gay
Saturday 9:00pm-3:00am @ Velvet

Velvet is celebrating the holidays with a good old fashioned yuletide drag show staring Carmen Gettit and Drag Idol 2017 Winner Dr Androbox. You’ll also get to see Johnny Diamond, Amber Asstrix and Fashionista Jones in action. Get glitzed up early, take in the show, and hit the dance floor for music by DJ Hernia.


Epic Art Opening, Silent Auction, Fun Fundraiser, Karokee
Friday 7:00-9:00pm @ Eastern Edge Gallery

The Eastern Edge Gallery is going all out for the opening of their annual Member’s Show! In addition to taking in new work by a ton of local artists, you’ll have a chance to participate in a silent auction and take some art home with you. There’ll also be a draw on art houses created by Pam Hall, with all the proceeds going to the Mary MacDonald Foundation. Plus there’ll be food, drinks, and karaoke.


Spoken Word St. John’s Poetry Open Mic
Sunday 7:30pm – 9:30pm @ The Ship

It’s the holiday edition of the Spoken Word St. John’s Poetry Open Mic. Head down to The Ship to hear new poetry from old favourites and fresh faces, and maybe even share some of your own! Cover is $5.00 and all of the proceeds will go directly to FeedNL which supports the Community Food Sharing Association and food banks in our province.
