There are few things San Franciscans love more than putting on costumes and partying. Luckily, there’s a Jewish holiday for that. It’s called Purim – basically the Jewish Halloween – and it’s about time everyone (Jews and non-Jews alike) found out how awesome it is.

That’s why the fine folks at the Contemporary Jewish Museum are throwing Night at the Jewseum: Purim Cabaret on Thursday, March 21st. And the bets part? It’s FREE!

As they explain it:

Join San Francisco’s favorite queens, featuring Miss Shugana, along with Queen Esther and the original He-Who-Must-Not-Be-Named for a rollicking Purim drag cabaret. You too can be a queen when you create your own DIY crown at the craft table, and explore gender expression in contemporary art on view in Show Me as I Want to Be Seen. 

You can learn more about it right here.

Here’s a little taster to see what other Night at the Jewseum events have been like:

Thursday night is part of a series of really cool events called Culture for Community. On March 21 and September 19, 2019, eleven arts and culture organizations around the Yerba Buena neighborhood are collaborating to offer special themed programs. Find out more about them right here.
