Summer and Fall in Palm Springs

2  more  SPLASH HOUSE  events in August!

Splash House is a summer festival series for you and your friends. It’s your ticket to a house and disco escape with great people and great fun. The party takes place across three hotel resorts in Palm Springs; Saguaro, Margaritaville and Renaissance, our favorite desert playground. Each resort is a full takeover hosting a poolside stage, rooms and balconies that are all part of the fun. Desert days continue into the night for our After Hours series, where we dance aside the planes and stars at the Palm Springs Air Museum.

Lady Bunny “Unmasked and Unfiltered”

Oscar’s Cafe & Bar

Calendar

Mar 15, 2022 7:00 pm

Dinner & Drink service begins at 5:00pm.

The legendary warthog of Wigstock, Lady Bunny, is coming to Palm Springs with her brand new, full-length cabaret experience “Unmasked and Unfiltered”.

Bunny was trapped in her apartment during lockdown, allowing her filthy and demented thoughts to marinate. Now that she’s running wild and free, she’s ready to share those irreverent thoughts with you through new parodies of Cardi B, Lady Gaga and Ariana Grande; Bunny’s salute to Laugh-In; and other brand new material mixed with some so old that only the dead will recall it. For Drag Race fans, Bunny zaps all the queens and RuPaul in a side-splitting parody of Madonna’s Vogue. Get ready for over an hour of live vocals and belly laughs.

Peter Pan tells the classic tale of a young boy who refuses to grow up. On a quest to find stories with which to entertain his young cohorts in Neverland — an island refuge for “Lost Boys” — Peter returns to the real world. J.M. Barrie’s masterful story shines especially brightly with a rich score that includes such beloved songs as “Tender Shepherd,” “Never Never Land” and “Distant Melody.” A delightful musical featuring singing pirates, daring swordfights, and fantastical make-believe, Peter Pan is a story that is filled with magic, delight, and just a fairy dusting of heartbreak.
Friday and Saturday shows are at 8:00 pm, Thursday shows are at 7:00 pm, Sundays are at 2 pm. Tickets will be available August 1st.

Best Play in Palm Springs

ELECTRICITY is a very funny, sexy and surprisingly emotional journey through the changes that occurred in the LGBTQ community between 1983 and 2013.

It navigates a world where gay life was hidden in bars and sex clubs to one where equality might just be a reality–if Gary and Brad can only believe that they deserve it.

“The hottest play in Palm Springs…
A must-see”
–Diane Anderson-Minshall, THE ADVOCATE

“ELECTRICITY is shockingly good…
​The show is expertly executed…
Witty, bitchy, at times gritty and moving, the show hits all the right notes, delivering the perfect combination of sweet, sexy, uproarious, and at times, sad.  But like any memorable love story, it all ends up going right to the heart.”

–Winston Gieseke, PALM SPRINGS LIFE

“A rich character-driven delight…
Playful and poignant, the “Electricity” has a charge that extends not just between the characters but well into the audience.”

–Margaret Quamme, THE COLUMBUS DISPATCH

is this years Grand Marshall!

Over the past 22 years, the parade has featured a host of marching bands, performing groups as well as the Budweiser Clydesdales, Mickey and Minnie Mouse, Snoopy and the Gang – and of course Santa and Mrs. Claus!

Yet more than anything else, it is the parade’s signature floats adorned in thousands of colorful holiday lights and huge Macy’s-style balloons that keeps the crowds coming back for more!

Consistently voted one of the best local events in the Coachella Valley, the parade was also voted one of the Top Ten Holiday Parades in the country in an AOL survey. “Over the years, the Palm Springs Festival of Lights Parade has become a beloved holiday tradition in downtown – bringing thousands of Coachella Valley residents and their families as well as tourists from all over the world to come see the twinkling floats while celebrating the joy of the holiday season,” says to Mayor Steve Pougnet. “There’s no other special event in the Coachella Valley quite like it!”
