Currently the largest gay dance weekend in North America is the White Party-Palm Springs. After conducting my research I put together a list of my top ten gay dance parties of all time. This is highly subjective, so please feel free to comment and or tweet me. () I would love to hear about your favorite parties and anything you feel I left out!
Top 10: The Best Gay Gay Dance Parties of All Time

The production value is probably the best you'll ever see at any dance party event outside of a nightclub. The fact that this event falls over Columbus Day Weekend (US) and Canadian Thanksgiving has contributed to the staggering number of attendees. About half of the attendees are straight, which is a sign of the future and most parties being a mixed crowd.
3. The Saint at Large (NYC) - BLACK PARTY:

Having had success on ATV with 31 episodes of Tonight With Dave Allen, the grey haired Irish comic embarked upon his most successful TV run with Dave Allen At Large, which ran for five series.
This event is based on the world of S&M/taboo and all the dark and adventurous avenues of sex. This party is untouchable because it is powered by the Saint at Large venue and the mentality of the old school days of New York clubbing. It is reminiscent of when there were NO rules. This event lives up to its wild reputation every year.
4. The Winter Party-Miami:
