SF’s Easter Sunday in the Park

Celebrate Easter with Drag Queens and the wildly fun Hunky Jesus Contest
By - posted 3/24/2018 No Comment

The Sisters of Perpetual Indulgence, the kabuki-inspired cross-dressing nuns-of-fun, host their 39th Easter Sunday in the Park at Hellman Hollow in Golden Gate Park.

There’s a family-friendly children’s Easter celebration at 10 am, but the real fun follows after the kids head home with adult-friendly fare like the Easter Bonnet Contest, drag kings and queens, and everyone’s favorite blasphemous hoot – the Hunky Jesus Contest.

  • 1:15pm – Sisters Vows, Saintings and Grants
  • 3:00pm – Foxy Mary Contest followed by Hunky Jesus Contest

Getting There: The easiest way to get to Hellman’s Hollow at Golden Gate Park is by MUNI. Take the 5 bus (get off at Fulton & 22nd Ave.), the 7 bus, the 28 bus, the 29 bus, or the N-Judah. FYI, the N-Judah does involve a few blocks of walking from 19th and Judah.

The 2018 theme is “Sacred Jesters and Wise Fools,” since Easter 2018 falls on April’s Fools Day. Join the Sisters for a family-friendly Children’s Easter starting at 10:00 a.m., which includes an egg hunt, games and face painting for the little ones.

Appearances and Performances by Kat Robichaud (The Voice), Honey Mahogany, Carlotta Sue Kay, Rachel Lark, Gooferman, Juanita More!, The SF Imperial, Krewe de Kinque and Ducal Courts, Breanna Sinclaire, Tribal Baroque, Sugah Betes & The Monster Show, Electric Spectrum Circus, and many more!
