In 1990, Jeffrey Sanker started the White Party in Palm Springs. What began as a gathering of his friends turned into one of the biggest gay circuit parties in the world. This weekend, it will take over Palm Springs for the 27th year and promises entertainment, dancing, and events all weekend long.
The White Party has historically served as a stage for up and coming major talent. Past headliners include Lady Gaga, Jennifer Lopez, and Icona Pop. The main event on Saturday night this year will feature a special performance by Maya Simantov and sets from DJs Dan Slater, Suri, and Aron.
The event has become a cornerstone for the gay community in Palm Springs and has helped it to earn its reputation as a gay-friendly town over the past 27 years.
The White Party is scheduled for May 5-8, with the main event taking place at the Palm Springs Convention Center on Saturday night. Tickets are available for purchase here. Looking for a place to stay? Check out rooms and suites at Two Bunch Palms.
