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 long weekend encompasses ingenues and impresarios, the avant-garde and outrageous, in a series of intimate showcase and feature events including workshops and competitions! Our Festival focuses on diversity, persons of all backgrounds, ability, gender, identites, age and size are welcome in our spaces.

Our vision for the festival is to bring together internationally renowned headliner acts, hosts and dozens of new and established performers, to celebrate our diverse and inclusive community. The spotlights of our festival are the Burlesque Bunny Competition and the Golden Beaver Award.

We couldn’t have asked for a better 5th festival with phenomenal acts and ecstatic patrons and we are now in the planning stages for our 6TH YEAR festival happening September 20-22, 2018! Subscribe to our mailing list for up to date news on the festival and yearly events.
