Elk Valley Pride Festival’s piece de resistance in 2018 was the Fernie Pride Society’s Fun’d Raising event, Saturday night’s Dragilicious Dance Party, featuring Misty Meadows, the Drag Empress of BC, with her entourage Amy Grindhouse and PM. The goal of this year’s Dragilicious Dance Party was to raise funds to help the society pursue its mission to support and connect the LGBTQ community in the Elk Valley and to continue to work toward making the Elk Valley a safe, inclusive community. It was a huge success and the society would like to thank all the donors and supporters of this great event. Stay tuned for next year's program and fund raising party - tentative schedule for the second week in October 2019!
