Bushwig! The 6th Annual “Festival of Drag, Music & Love” is held at The Knockdown Center in Queens! The party is located at 52-19 Flushing Ave, Queens. It is a departure from Bushwick–the Brooklyn neighborhood that inspired the name of the event.
Bushwig takes great pride in being a celebration of anyone for everyone. Founded by a group of artists deeply involved in the Brooklyn drag scene, the festival provides a creative safe space for everyone to get involved. The drag community has grown immensely as television show RuPauls Drag Race, has brought it to the mainstream. The festival functions first and foremost as a community event, giving all a part of the stage and an opportunity to get involved. The artists at Bushwig travel far to showcase their very best work, with some acts traveling from Europe. The festival was founded in 2012, its original lineup had 60 acts and 6 years later, more than 150 acts perform this year during the two-day festival.
