The Edmonton Burlesque Festival is a not-for-profit extravaganza celebrating all things burlesque, vaudeville and fabulous. It is aimed at the local, national and international theatre and arts community. The Fall-time long weekend encompasses ingenues and impresarios, the avant-garde and outrageous, in a series of intimate showcase and feature events including workshops and competitions! Persons of all backgrounds, ability, gender, identities, and size are welcome in our spaces. Our showcases are all 18+.
Our vision for the festival is to bring together internationally renowned headliner acts, performers, hosts and volunteers to build and celebrate our diverse and inclusive community. The spotlights of our festival are the Burlesque Bunny Competition and the Golden Beaver Award.
