Moab’s 2019 Trashion Show is on Saturday, Feb. 23, the Resiliency Hub has announced. Community members are encouraged to dress up in their best upcycled costume for the annual dance party.

A “Trashion Crafting” workshop is being held on Thursday, Feb. 7, at the Moab Arts and Recreation Center, for people who want to get a head start on their outfit. The nonprofit WabiSabi, which runs Moab’s community thrift store, is providing some “odds and ends” to add to costumes.

Highlighting the show on Feb. 23 is a fashion runway. Three Trashion Show judges will mingle with the crowd at the dance party before selecting nine of the trashiest costumes for the runway. Costume categories will include the “Trashiest,” “Classiest” and “Sassiest.” A top winner will be selected by the judges in each category.

The party begins at 8 p.m. at World Famous Woody’s Tavern, 221 S. Main St.

The judges will give more consideration to costumes that use waste items that have recently been deemed as “non-recyclable” in Moab, like “clam-shell” plastics, colored plastics and mixed paper.

A new project will be on site for everyone to try at this year’s show. All waste from the event will be pressed to make building blocks for building projects. 

This event is for people aged 21 and older and there $10 admission fee at the door. Proceeds benefit the Resiliency Hub.
