“…A whole weekend of innovative performers.” – Newsworks
The Philadelphia Burlesque Festival is independently produced and organized in dedication to the art of burlesque, and for the community that empowers this craft.
Every spring, the festival welcomes more than 50 performers from across the country to inspire and entertain hundreds of audience members. Elevating our local burlesque community remains at the top of our mission statement year over year.
As a female-owned and operated business employing other experienced local producers, performers, and crew, we look forward to further nurturing this classic art form in our city.
Now as we enter our third year, we look forward to inspiring you once again.

Co-producer, Victoria Page
Co-Producer for the 2017 season, Victoria Page captivates audiences with her compelling character creation and unique performance sensibility. Beginning her ecdysiast education under the tutelage of legends Jo Boobs Weldon and Bettina May at the New York School of Burlesque and local powerhouses Ginger Leigh and Sophie Sucré of Philadelphia’s award-winning The Peek-A-Boo Revue, Victoria is constantly honing her craft! Garnering finishing touches and an impressive work ethic through her internship with Broad St. Burlesque, she’s weird and wildly charming. Winner of Miss Congeniality and a finalist in the 3rd season of Philadelphia’s Burlesque Battle Royale, this Novel Tease is ecstatic to combine her MBA with her artistic drive as Co-Producer of The Philadelphia Burlesque Festival.
