The Red Dress Ball is back for its sixth edition, and it’ll be bigger, better, and REDDER than ever. Join us at Daniels Spectrum on Saturday, April 22nd, 2023 for a night of music, dancing, and drag performances, all in support of a great cause. It’ll be an unforgettable evening, filled with all the glitz, glamour, and love that The Red Dress Ball is known for.

Since our establishment in 2018, The Red Dress Ball Foundation has raised over $215,000 in support of people living with or at risk of HIV/AIDS, and this year we’re proud to be supporting the Toronto People With AIDS Foundation (PWA) through the funds raised at our 2023 event.

The Red Dress Ball is more than just a party, it’s a celebration of community and the power of giving back. So put on your best red look, grab your dancing shoes, and get ready to dance the night away. We promise you an amazing evening that’s a little bit kitsch, a ton of fun, and a whole lot of love for a great cause.

And if you’re curious about our headline entertainer, or the talented drag performers who will be gracing the stage, don’t worry – all will be revealed in the coming month! Mark your calendars for February 14th, 2023, when tickets for The Red Dress Ball will be available for purchase. Trust us, you won’t want to miss this unforgettable event!
