RuPaul’s DragCon NYC is an annual drag exposition held in New York City, which debuted in September 2017. … The event is an outgrowth of the internationally successful RuPaul’s Drag Race, which generated Drag Race Thailand, RuPaul’s Drag Race UK, RuPaul’s Drag Race All Stars, and Chile’s The Switch Drag Race.
To get the most bang for your buck, get there as early as you can and visit as many booths as possible. Obviously, that’s not entirely realistic (or recommended for everyone), so here’s the basic what-to-know about the weekend.
Panels are some of the most exciting parts of DragCon. This is where you can hear some of your favorite drag queens chime in on a variety of topics, with everything from Broadway to fashion to political activism.
They’re also the perfect way to get off your feet for a bit and hear some candid conversations between panel speakers. You’ll likely learn some new things, whether it’s a backstage moment during Drag Race or a new makeup tip.
