The 2016 Club Skirts Dinah Shore Weekend pulled all the stops to create an event of pure magic.

The famed weekend was filled with unique moments, exceptional firsts, unforgettable milestones, and unexpected surprises that made up for one of the most surreal and mind blowing Dinah ever.

You never know what extraordinary things might happen at The Dinah. From Kate Moennig and Camila Grey giving an exclusive surprise performance Friday night as The X-Names to international pop icon Lady Gaga making her unexpected return to The Dinah to enjoy a little fun in the sun at the Saturday Cabana Pool Party.

There are plenty of good reasons to want to experience The Dinah, be it the massive pool parties, the star-studded red carpet soirees, the top-notch live concerts by established performers and fast-rising newcomers, the celebrity sighting, or the hottest DJs and dancers around the world.

While The Dinah might represent different things for everyone, the one common thread is its unique ability to bind everyone together as one big family and organically impart a sense of solidarity and normalcy.

Founder and producer of Club Skirts Dinah Shore Weekend, Mariah Hanson, said, “The message is always the same: Here’s a space for you to celebrate your life, live out loud, and simply love.”

It was a weekend of high-energy performances whether singing in front of a mic or spinning records behind the turntables. Perpetuating the rise of women and now transgender DJs behind the decks, the Dinah put an extra focus on trail-blazing DJs with a diverse group of incredibly talented taste makers who more than hold their own.

The Hot As L Pool Party was another smash hit at this year’s Dinah Shore Weekend. The event reunited some iconic actors including Clementine Ford, Elizabeth Keener, Tracy Ryerson, Amanda Leigh Dunn and Hunter Valentine who performed their farewell show to thank the fans for an amazing ride.

The Dinah 2016 was the most star studded Dinah Shore Weekend in history. Above it all, it was the most profoundly transformative and empowering Dinah ever.

Hanson said, “I keep on hearing how this was the best Dinah yet, which of course puts a huge smile on my face. I’m proud of my staff. They all execute the administrative part of the weekend with such grace even when under pressure. Of course, I’m also grateful and thankful to our incredibly wonderful and appreciative customers who remind us of exactly why we do what we do. The magic of The Dinah is undeniable and irreplaceable. I’m so moved and touched; I am already planning for next year – bigger and better!”
