You’ll Get A Kick Out of the New Orleans Burlesque Festival

New Orleans Burlesque Festival 2016The 8th annual New Orleans Burlesque Festival is a 3-day, international event of both classy and risqué performances in a challenge to crown the new “Queen of Burlesque.” September 15-18, 2016.

Burlesque and New Orleans’ French Quarter go hand in hand. Throughout the 40’s, 50’s, and 60s, New Orleans’ Bourbon Street had the largest concentration of burlesque clubs in the United States. Consequently, it comes as no surprise that a preeminent, international burlesque festival would be held here.

New Orleans Burlesque Festival features classic burlesque – not just dancers but also comic emcees, singers, and variety acts. This timeless combination of both the bawdy and the classy on stage in one show makes for some of the best adult entertainment you could ask for. In fact, the festival has played a big role in modern burlesque revival.

New Orleans Burlesque Festival 2016Attendance at the annual New Orleans Burlesque Festival grows with each year. What began as a simple, one-show competition has now become a 3-day event with a variety of shows, parties, panels, workshops, and more. Take a look!
