8 pm -11 pm: Showcase
This is the most anticipated night of the Vermont Burlesque Festival! The evening will be filled with unique vending, beverage tastings by Hendrick’s Gin, live music by a 21 piece BIG band orchestra (Compaq Big Band), comedy, variety acts, charitable causes, and of course a collection of the best burlesque performances Vermont will witness all year long. Medianoche—Crowned New Orleans Queen of Burlesque as well as the Queen of Burlesque from the Burlesque Hall of Fame—gives two special performances, including Sin in an Hourglass. More than three hours of live performance art guaranteed to flirt with every human emotion.
This is the Night for Dressing to Impress!
The theme for Saturday is "grand"—black tie, elegant, and decorated—but is not required. Best dressed prizes will be awarded to those attendees who grace the festival’s red carpet, pose for the paparazzi, and who best exemplify the beauty, grace, elegance, sparkle, and class that is The Vermont Burlesque Festival. Since we all have to wear masks, we’ve decided to have a Masquerade Party!!! Bling out your mask! Make it sparkle! Get creative!
