International Booklover's Burlesque Festival Tickets

All 2023 Festival Tickets Are SOLD OUT

The 1st Annual International Booklover's Burlesque Festival is a weekend event full of the sexiest literary burlesque.  Each day will showcase "Guests of Honor" and"Featured" authors and, as well as curated performing artists chosen from applications from around the world.  The weekend will begin with a celebration of Gothic Literature with an intimate show at Swan Dive in Portland. Our Friday night Grand Showcase #1 at The Alberta Rose Theatre will feature over a dozen readings and performers from a mix of genres (hence an "open" theme).  We'll continue the "open theme" on Saturday with Grand Showcase #2 (a completely different group of readings and performances) also at The Alberta Rose Theatre.  Our Sunday brunch, Cozy Classics Cabaret Brunch, at The Victorian Belle Mansion will focus on classic literature.  

Each show will feature entirely different casts and acts.  Guests should purchase tickets for each day separately below. 

Our festival is a weekend of showcases and does not include a competition component.  We will also include classes/workshops given by our Guests of Honor and/or featured guests on Friday and Saturday mornings during our weekender.  More information to follow regarding the classes.
