Hailed by Peoria Magazines as, "An Experience Like No Other", Drag N' Paint is a high energy production providing guests with wild, show stopping drag shows, and a unique paint night experience. Established in 2020 by Artist Megan Couri and Drag Queen Miss Flo NoMo', our twist on the traditional paint night has taken the Peoria area by storm, selling out almost every show we have produced. We offer early evening shows, usually beginning around 6:30PM. Our reasoning behind the earlier show model is to provide Drag entertainment to everyone who is interested. Traditionally Drag Shows in our area begin late in the evening which we noticed excluded a core demographic of people. We are currently booking 2023-2024 dates.

Meet Ben Abbot!

By day, Ben is the Events Manager at the Peoria Civic Center, but outside of that he is the behind the scenes marketing, promotions, box office, and events coordinator for Drag N’ Paint. 
From a young age Ben had always been fascinated by the live entertainment stage. Growing up he had a love for music stemming from many nights of watching his dad perform in numerous bands around the Central Illinois area. Ben took his love for music and the live entertainment industry and put it wholeheartedly into cultivating his own craft of coordinating and executing live entertainment events. Ben has worked various shows at multiple music venues in the area. After the first Drag N’ Paint event Ben was hooked! He would like to thank Miss Flo and Megan for accepting him to the team with open arms and allowing him to share his creativity through this amazing experience.

Showing support to all in the LGBTQ+ world means a lot to her and she loves that she gets the chance to show her love through these shows and experiences.
