MEDIA RELEASE: Fruitcake Sober
FruitCake: SOBER. The only good type of dry FruitCake!
The party for those that want to party, guilt and worry free.
[Kelowna, BC - September 17th, 2022] — Rebellious Unicorns and Third Space are pleased to present the first ever FruitCake: SOBER. Taking place on September 17th at Third Space Cafe, it’s all the party of FruitCake, without any of the booze.
With fabulous slushies, drag performances from Dora Knob and Sophonda Dick and of course a DJ and dancing, it’s still very much a FruitCake Party, just a sober one!
With the ever-growing awareness about the dangers of substance abuse, we at Rebellious Unicorns wanted to do something a little different, and offer a safe space for people to party without the added pressure of inebriation around them. As a bonus, a portion of the proceeds from the event will be donated right back to Third Space, so they can continue their mission of providing counseling for those who need it.
“Inclusivity is ingrained in the DNA of Rebellious Unicorns, which is why it was important for us to create a fun, party night, without the substances” shares Dustyn Baulkham, Executive Producer, “When our team reached out to Third Space Cafe they loved the idea and were on board right from the beginning. We are excited to be supporting Third Space Charity in the great work they do in the mental health space.”
Tickets start at $20 for presale, and rise as the event gets closer. Buying early always guarantees you the best price.

FruitCake is a themed monthly 2SLGTBQ+ party series. Taking place in rotating locations across western Canada, we’ve grown from a dance party to a full evening experience. The core element of FruitCake has always been the live DJ and dance party, but those have now been accented by either a drag show featuring local and national talent or a live comedy pre-show featuring a line-up of upcoming 2SLGTBQ+ comedians. FruitCake was founded on the idea that everyone should have a safe place to party, let loose and be themselves.
