ASHEVILLE, NC THREE DAYS OF INNOVATIVE ENTERTAINMENT, EMPOWERMENT & EDUCATION ABSfest: the Americana Burlesque & Sideshow Festival, is in its eighth year spearheading the burlesque and vaudeville revival in America. We do this by presenting quality shows for the public, and quality learning opportunities for the artists who bring these arts to life. Three days of classes, shows, networking and adventure bring together happy crowds and brilliant artists. Founded by international entertainer and instructor, Madame Onça, the Hardest Working Woman in Show Business, the festival is one of several annual events that she produces.
This year's event tops them all, with FOUR shows, two parties, and learning opportunities for the absolute beginner and the striving professional!
