ADAMS, Mass. — The Adams Theater will present the Majesty of the Berkshires Pride Pageant on June 2.
The event is set to kick off Pride Month in the Berkshires and will feature a lineup of kings, queens, and everyone in-betweens who will take the stage to showcase drag artistry and self-expression, according to a press release.
Created and presented by Bella Santarella and hosted by Shawn Hollenbach, the night's festivities will include a competition, with the winner being crowned the Majesty of the Berkshires and receiving a one-year reign as the leader of the Berkshire County LGBTQIA+ community.

Berkshire Cider Project and Big Elm Brewery will be catering the evening's beverages, and Dottie's Coffee Lounge of Pittsfield will be providing delicious food, including DRAGon bowls, a Dom Sub sandwich, and a Bear Bowl. Guests are encouraged to arrive early to secure their preferred seats and dress to impress.
