7th Annual Michigan Burlesque Festival
The Michigan Burlesque Festival started in 2012 with the the intent to bring some of the worlds most unique performers to Detroit in hopes of reuniting the traditional concepts of original burlesque theater, where dancers and vaudevillians shared a stage to provide well rounded and entertaining and sexy comedic show.

In addition to performances on the main stage this year, the Tangent Gallery will also be lined with artists and merchants throughout the night, displaying and selling their crafts, apparel, treats and more. Saturday afternoon will also include classes on the arts and styles of burlesque. Class schedules TBA.

Headliners will be joined by a cast of over 40 talented burlesque performers from around the world, as well as the amazingly witty and sensational Foxy Tann, who will be your host for the weekend.
