Pony Cabaret

Pony Cabaret 2023

Join us on Thursday, June 20 for the 2024 Pony Cabaret!

PONY is Kelowna’s premier cabaret and it only comes once a year. The cabaret is queer-run and stocked full of talented queer performers featuring drag, storytelling, comedy and burlesque, as well as hosted by Miss Cookie LaWhore and Erin Scott. Miss LaWhore is the alter-ego of Creative Writing Professor Michael V. Smith and her role is to be the biggest freak in the room so everyone else can feel a little more normal.

The 2024 event will feature a rogues gallery of queer performers including Montreal-based performer Alexis O’Hara, Canadian Drag star Chiquita Mére, and Calgary Rapper SINZERE, with performances from Natasha Kanapé Fontaine, Tintina Tundra, KENDONTCRY, and Evan the Juggler.

This event is a fundraiser for the Inspired Word Cafe, the suggested fundraising amount of $10 to $40. Pony Cabaret is 18+.

Purchase Tickets

Pony Cabaret is supported by the Faculty of Creative and Critical studies at UBC Okanagan, and is organized and executed by the Inspired Word Café as part of the New Leaves Festival.
