Intrepid Idea Series

The Idea Series returns: join us for our Get Into It: Idea Series with workshops and pop-up performances woven throughout the festival designed to teach you something new, open up your mind, and keep the party going! There will be late-night cabarets on Fridays and Saturdays with libations and pop-up performances from local queer artists; a Happy Hour drag show at The Vicious Poodle; plus free online & in-person workshops (puppet making and income tax help, anyone?).


Please indicate any accessibility needs, including wheelchair accessible seating or if you require seating with no stairs, in the provided field. We will do our best to assign seating that works for you and get in touch if we have any questions. A Visual Guide for The Metro Studio has been created, and is current as of August 2023. View it here.
