High Heel Drag Race In New Hope


The race will be held on Sunday, October 30th, 2022! 

Keeping A New Hope Tradition Alive Over the past 18 years, the annual High Heel Drag Race has been the highlight of the October fall season in New Hope. Originally hosted by the local Chamber of Commerce, the event was passed to NHC in 2015.  “We are so excited for our 18th year of the High Heel Drag Race, and I cannot wait to see all the drag, heels, pumpkins, and glitter!”, said Melissa Patterson, President of New Hope Celebrates.


The High Heel Race is an all-inclusive event, which represents our communities’ diverse and accepting culture. Everyone in the race, male and female participants alike, will wear high heels as they each carry a pumpkin up the hill where they will decorate it and return down Mechanic Street in New Hope.

One of New Hope’s most popular and fun-filled fall events, which heralds in the Out in October – New Hope Celebrates Fall exhibits and events.
