Ultimate Miami has sought to crown the best of the best in South Florida in a variety of fields, female impersonation being one. The first Ultimate Miami Drag Queen was crowned in 2012 and each year since then, a new queen is recognized as the best up-and-coming queen in the area. This year’s Ultimate Miami Drag Queen will be held at Magic City Casino’s Stage 305 on Saturday, June 20 at 9 p.m.
The queens who qualified for the final round passed over a number of hurdles. Contestants were originally asked to apply via the Ultimate Miami website at theultimatemiami.com, and a committee reads the applications and decides whether or not they are impressed with the applicants. Then, the final list of queens who will be competing on-stage at Magic City Casino are selected via a rigorous process. Again, the committee is consulted and their final decisions translate into the list of queens competing in the live contest. These last few performers are all vying for the title of “Miami’s Ultimate” and a $5,000 cash prize.
In addition to the wonderful food and drinks served by the catering crew at the Magic City Casino, there will also be great live entertainment. Direct from RuPaul’s Drag Race season six, both Adore Delano and Courtney Act will be present to headline Ultimate Miami Drag Queen, singing some of their newest releases from their respective albums. It’s an evening you’ll definitely want to experience from beginning to end.
The cost for admission is $20, which can be pre-paid in advance or paid at the door. If you’d like seating for four, VIP tables can be reserved for four people starting at $300. Call (305) 649-3000, ext. 3429, to reserve your table today.
