WIGSTICKS . DRAG CAMP



Following in the footsteps of Lady Bunny, co-creator of Wigstock, Steady Mess, 2009 Queen of the Delaware, put on her stilettos and began planning the Upper Delaware's version of the famous NYC drag festival. With a twist of the name and the help of some queens and queers she brought drag to the sticks. WIGSTICKS had its premiere in 2009 in the foot hills of the Poconos at Mt. Haven Resort in Milford, PA.

What was feared by some to be too daring an event for the rural area, turned out to be a huge success. The GLBTQ community together with their straight friends enjoyed an evening filled with some good queen fun.

WIGSTICKS returns to Mt. Haven for its 2010 show, Drag Camp. This year's event will have all the trappings of camp - a camp fire, merit badges, games, a girl scout or two and for those who want the full experience, tent camping will be available.

Dinner will be available at the restaurant at Mt. Haven at a special rate for ticket holders. In addition to tent camping, overnight accommodations are also available at the resort.
