Held at The Los Angeles Convention Center and presented by Rupaul and World of Wonder Productions, Rupaul’s DragCon, is a 3-day family-friendly celebration of drag culture, with some of the biggest names in drag in attendance. Complete with Q&A sessions, panels with Drag Race cast members, shopping, performances, photo-ops, and more, DragCon is any Drag Race fan’s dream.
