FABAlice Festival Alice Springs 2022
Drag, Glitter, Cabaret , Performances and so much more For Kings, FABAlice Festival is for Queens and everything in-between!
FABAlice Festival, Alice Springs is a 3 day rainbow festival in the beating heart of Australia. Spectacular drag, comedy and cabaret performances and events featuring a Flag raising ceremony, Street Party, Colouring the town Rainbow, Cinema screenings, Drag Queen Story time, Carnivale under the stars, Afterparty, Drag Queen Bingo, a Pool Party and an DJ pumping out the tunes set amongst a glittering landscape of Alice Springs!
FABalice Festival started in 2018 and was inspired by the cult classic movie The Adventures of Priscilla, Queen of the Desert. It sits prettily on the gay social calendar just after the Mardi Gras festivities in Sydney, a picturesque desert escape in which to recover from the excesses of the previous weeks, or you know, just add to the damage.

- The main event of the weekend is the FABalice Carnivale, as sell out event and an opportunity for everyone to kick up their heels on the dance floor under the central Australian starscape at Alice Springs Desert Park. And no Auzzie event would be complete without an After Party! HEad to Throb Nightclub from 11pm, the only place to be and continue your partying late into the night!
- End your trip with some fun DraG Queen Bingo on Sunday at the Gapview hotel or chill out at the Sunday Recovery Session at the GapView Pool party from 5pm and end the festival in Style.
