We have created this festival to support and showcase all facets of the neoburlesque revival - classic, humorous, conceptual, acrobatic, etc. We're bringing you the most amazing, creative, and talented group of burlesque vaudeville and variety performers in one place! Not to mention, the most elaborate class & workshop schedule you will ever see for performers, photographers, teachers, and anyone crazy about burlesque as a part of this four day event. Our goal for this event is to not only showcase the amazing talents the Southeast has to offer, but to also show the Southeast the amazing talents the rest of the world has to offer. It will be a weekend of burlesque goodness for all!
