On Friday August 5th from 5:30 pm to 8:30 pm, drag performers will transform Britannia Mine Museum’s historic Mill into the Province’s biggest drag runway. Old Town, New Queens: Pride Night at Britannia Mine Museum is an afterhours event that will celebrate the Museum’s summer exhibition “More Than a Mine: Recreation in a Mining Town” which opened May 20.
“One of this exhibit’s goals is to diversify the voices we are sharing through the Museum’s displays,” says Derek A. Jang, Manager of Interpretive Delivery. “It seems like a natural fit to share our spotlight with some of the amazing queer performers from Squamish and Vancouver. Drag is an underground art form, so what better venue than a historic mine?”
Entry to the event includes a 45 minute drag performance as well as evening access to “More Than a Mine” and the Museum’s permanent exhibits. Drag performers will be available for meet and greets at the Gold Panning exhibit through the night, and a limited number of deluxe tickets will also include access to the Museum’s famous underground tour.
Old Town New Queens is a dry event; non-alcoholic beverages and a limited selection of food will be available for purchase on the lower site.

Deluxe tickets include:
Regular Tickets (General Admission) $35 + tax
