Normie Corp X Stoli Stage

Normie Corporation and Vancouver Pride Society come together to put on the most lit beer garden that Sunset Beach has seen to date. This year, Normie Corp has curated the talent at the beer garden and will showcase an entirely BIPoC cast that promises to maximize their fun in the sun. You can look forward to upbeat dance music, some of the city’s best drag, and sexy gogos. 

Normie Corporation was born out of reminiscing days and nights of dancing with friends. Founded by 3 bedroom DJs who began hosting parties over Zoom during a pandemic, we threw online events to keep the community together when we were required to be apart. As the world opened up, we’ve expanded to throw events in real life too.

Since inception, we’ve had the honour of showcasing over 90 unique local performers, most of whom are Black, Indigenous, and people of colour, and almost all of them are queer. We live among so many potential headliners, some of us just haven’t had access to a platform yet.
