MAM After Dark: Masquerade

Friday, February 28, 2020, 7 PM–11 PM

Presented by Northwestern Mutual

Be vibrant, be mysterious, be you! Slip on a mask, and parade down to the Museum for a night of Carnival-inspired festivities. We're celebrating Mardi Gras with extravagant costumes, music, and dancing. Flaunt your sequins, beads, and feathers, and revel in all the exciting activities-plus enjoy a live drag show!

Community Partners: UWM LGBT Resource Center & Wisconsin LGBT Chamber of Commerce

All night fun:

  • Drag Show, 9-10 p.m.: Watch as local queens Chanel D’Vine, Dita Von, Marbella Sodi, and Demi Sexton perform live on stage in Windhover Hall, with music spun by DJ Synymata.

  • Try your luck at Bango (Drag Bingo) and catch the season premiere of RuPaul’s Drag Race on the East End.

  • DIY: Make your own rainbow suncatchers and LGBTQ+ flag pins, and decorate a masquerade mask with our community partners.

  • Shop from a diverse group of LGBT-allied artists and vendors.

  • Sip on a “Trixie Mattel,” a specialty cocktail named after the Milwaukee queen.

  • Not-Your-Average Art Tours, 8 and 10 p.m.: Werk your way through the galleries on fun-filled tours highlighting LGBTQ+ art and artists.

  • Plus, so much more!
