The International Booklover's Burlesque Festival
The International Booklover's Burlesque Festival is an annual celebration of literary and performing arts, highlighting burlesque, boylesque, and draglesque artists from around the world and some of your favorite literary pieces and some you have never heard before. Our four-day festival takes place in Portland, Oregon USA at multiple locations, including two main "open-themed" showcases celebrating all genres of the written word at the historic Alberta Rose Theatre, our exclusive "classic literature" burlesque brunch show at the Victorian Belle Mansion, and our opening night "gothic literature" themed show at Swan Dive. Our festival features over 50 different acts and performers, each show featuring different casts, including world-renowned "Guests of Honor," performing artists and authors, professional actors/readers, and specially-curated burlesque, boylesque, and draglesque acts.
Each show is entirely different, with different casts and acts, so audience members should buy a separate tickets for each day. Come join us for our unique, inaugural festival on April 13-16, 2023! Tickets on sale now!
