WIN: Ohio Burlesque Festival

The 8th Annual Ohio Burlesque Festival is returning to The Beachland Ballroom August 2nd-August 4th.  According to Bella Sin, the producer of the festival, The Ohio Burlesque Festival is the most diverse and inclusive show in the country. She added that she wanted a show that put Black women and other women of color in the forefront and as headliners as opposed to opening acts.

The 3-day festival will include over seventy performers performing burlesque, vaudeville, sideshow and variety acts. It is also filled with Meet & Greets and after parties along with a few surprises.

This year's theme is "Motion is Power" and looks to inspire all of us to work toward a common goal of inclusivity and diversity thru activism both on and off the stage.

This year the festival will be raising money and awareness for IRFT InterReligious Task Force on Central America, Los Niños De Corsos and The Burlesque Hall Of Fame.

Still unsure? The festival has also received a two proclamation from Mayor Frank Jackson, a recognition from The Ohio House of Representatives for its longevity and support of the LGBTQ communities and work with women of color.

Tickets are available for a limited time at $50 for the weekend pass. VIP and Reserve Tickets are available and single day tickets will cost $20 in advance, $25 at the door.  Or you can win a pair from us.
