Patrick’s Cabaret is a queer-led performance art incubator supporting the growth & development of artists on the edge of culture.

Thank You for Supporting Our Work

For three decades, Patrick's Cabaret has been providing accessible opportunities for artists to create transformative work on a professional stage. We support artists who experiment, who challenge, and who build community. We are committed to making space for artists from identities and communities on the margins of society. And we do it all on a shoestring.

Contributions from patrons and friends help fund necessary staff, maintenance, program, and other financial requirements that help us continue supporting artists in their growth and development. Please consider making a financial donation today to Patrick's Cabaret so we can continue to support the growth and development of new art and new artists in our community. Patrick's Cabaret is a federally recognized 501(c)(3) charitable nonprofit organization, and donations are tax deductible to the full extent permitted by law.
