RFDS Bashville Drags and Fashions in The Desert

SIMPSON DESERT QLD | 5-7 JULY 2022

Like all good outback towns, Bashville will be home to some races in 2022. However these races will be a little bit different to the iconic Birdsville Races. They won’t be horse races, they will be Drag races! What we mean by that is that they will be short fun running races through the campsite, (approximately 500m with a steep incline - basic level fitness required!) but to be eligible to enter you will be required to be dressed in a “Priscilla – Queen of the Desert” theme.

There will be some special prizes on offer for the winners. We won’t be having male and female categories - however there will be prizes for Drag Queens and Drag Kings so we encourage everybody to get involved! Only the most exceptional outfits will be chosen by our panel of volunteer judges to be shown on stage. Again, some great prizes will be on offer for those whose Pricilla themed outfits are most outstanding!

Both the Bashville Drags and Fashions in the Desert are charity events and a fun way for people to support the Royal Flying Doctor Service (RFDS) that provide vital services to remote areas such as this.

So "drag” out your best Pricilla outfit, and be part of the fun and frivolity.

REGISTRATIONS AVAILABLE THROUGHOUT THE FESTIVAL AT THE RFDS TENT

The RFDS Bashville Drags and Fashions in the Desert is organised and managed by Outback Music Festival Group as a fundraiser for the Royal Flying Doctor Service.
