Brooklyn Ed’s Burlesque Festival Calendar

 

A brief listing of upcoming burlesque festivals and events of note in the US and Canada.

Note that I have tried to limit this listing to multi-day events. Please advise me of any needed corrections or additions.

 

Be sure to also check out the Burlesque Festival Information Google spreadsheet. Originally created by Ri RI SynCyr, it is now maintained by the BurlyCon team and continues to include a lot of information on the events listed.  Many thanks are due to Ri Ri for maintaining the spreadsheet for six long years!
