Sequins, boas and a rainbow of talent mark the triumphant return of LGBTQ+ variety show Peacock in the Park each June.
Founded in 1987, this free, all-ages, family-friendly event ran for 18 years until it was replaced in 2005 by the Peacock After Dark show. In 2014, in response to popular demand, the Peacock went back to the park — Washington Park, that is. Anyone is welcome to bring a picnic to enjoy on-site, including beer and wine (just no hard liquor). Peacock in the Park is free, but attendees are encouraged to donate to the Audria M. Edwards Scholarship Fund, which benefits LGBTQ students.
2018 marked the 31st anniversary of Peacock in the Park, bringing another full afternoon of entertainment staged among the roses at the Washington Park Amphitheater. Entertainment included live music, food, dancers and drag performers.
