The Austin International Drag Foundation, INC. is the first 501(c)3 nonprofit organization in the United States (and arguably the world) that
has been delivering an all inclusive, empowering festival celebrating the art of Drag in its many forms, bringing in artists from all around the globe with a mission to create an inclusive space and a platform for budding artists, established talent and everyone else in between since 2015. Austin International Drag Festival is produced by Austin International Drag Foundation Inc., which is an event dedicated to the education, support and advancement of Drag artists worldwide. This 100% volunteer run festival brings in Drag Artists and fans from across the globe. They experience panels and workshops in the daytime as part of our conference element, and watch up to 400 drag performances over the period of three days and nights. AIDF has been implementing year-round events outside of our regularly scheduled festivals to better support our mission to provide work to drag artists globally - the only way is up!
