Canada’s most prestigious and long-running burlesque festival, showcases Vancouver’s long history with the art of burlesque and cabaret dancing. In the 1940’s Vancouver nightclubs rivaled the hotbeds of Montreal and San Francisco as a mecca for burlesque. Since 2006, the Burlesque Festival has been bringing burlesque to a new generation.

Learn how to get the most of a costume budget with Nasty Canasta, find your fierceness with Sassy von Stradler, feel the music and movement with Bazuka Joe, whip out your Wild Side with burlesque legend Camille 2000 or many other performers passing in their experience.
The public can start the weekend on Thursday March 30th with Tit Talks 2017, a TED Talks style session to Teach, Inspire and Transcend. Then experience their favourite burlesque performers or discover the artform for the first time at The International Cabaret on Friday March 31st and Vancouver Uncovered on Saturday April 1st at Vancouver Playhouse.
