Northalsted Market Days 2022, Saturday, Aug. 6 and Sunday, Aug. 7

San Antonio drag queen and former American Idol competitor Ada Vox headlines Northalsted Market Days on Saturday, Aug. 6. 

Vox became the first drag artist in Idol’s history to place in the Top 10. 

The accomplished vocalist and songwriter most recently appeared in the international drag singing competition Queen of the Universe where she finished as runner-up to Brazilian competitor Grag Queen.

Of her show-stopping performance, judge Trixie Mattel said, "What do we really watch [drag] for? We watch it to watch someone who has maybe never belonged before doing something we belong doing. You are for this. This is for you."

Ada Vox performs the Bud Light Seltzer North Stage (N. Halsted and Brompton) at 2:00 p.m. on Saturday, Aug.6.
