The Edmonton Burlesque Festival happens every September. We are in our 5th year.
In addition to our chosen headliners and features, we open performer applications early Spring for entertainers from all around the world who would like to come to our great city to perform and learn from our workshops. Every year we join together approximately 60 headliners and performers to bring you a very unique and thrilling weekend long festival.
Our Festival every September includes:
Thursday – Burlesque Bunny Competition | Private Performer Mixer
Friday – Daytime Workshops | Red Carpet Gala Showcase | Private Performer After-party
Saturday – Daytime Tea with Burlesque Legends | Debauchery Ball | Private Performer After-party
Sunday – Private Performer Events
For patrons, all the showcases are ticketed individually or you can purchase a festival 3 day pass. There are general and VIP options for you depending on the experience you would like. All other events are for performers and are announced privately.
During the year we also host One Night Stand events, which are one-off burlesque events to help cultivate the community and raise funds for our non-profit organization.
