Tantrums & Tiaras

REturning in 2023

Tantrums & Tiaras is an event like no other!  A high-quality spoof of beauty pageants complete with extravagant costumes, divine “ladies”, and a “talent” showcase. Local companies sponsor male contestants, none of whom have any pageant experience, as they compete to be crowned the next community Queen! In collaboration with Mo’s Universe Group, it’s an evening of wigs, glitter, and hilarity, all for a great cause! Join the fun and cheer for your local favorites. Proceeds benefit the programs and services of The Center.

Guests enjoy live music, multiple art exhibits by local Latin@ artists and vendors, a Frida look-alike contest, great food, and tequila! Proceeds benefit Latin@ Services at The Center. Stay tuned for more information for 2023!
