COVID-19 Info & Vaccination Requirements for 2023 Weekender Attendees and Performers

For the protection of our performers, production staff and volunteers, attendees, and burlesque Legends, all attendees to the 2023 BHoF Weekender will be required to be fully vaccinated. Vaccinations are recognized as the single most effective way to reduce the risk of contracting or spreading COVID-19, and thus the best way to reduce the risk of attending the Weekender for our beloved burlesque Legends and other immune-compromised people in our community. We also strongly suggest that attendees and performers wear masks in the showroom and at indoor BHoF events, for the protection of our Legends and other elderly or immunocompromised guests.

Definition of “Fully Vaccinated”

Please come ready to show your vaccination card (or official app or digital photo) when you pick up your wristbands. All attendees will be required to have a current vaccination, defined as having received the core 1-2 shots of your specific vaccine and at least one (1) booster.

Vaccination Exemptions

Due to the difficulty in evaluating religious exemptions, we will not be accepting religious exemptions for this event.
If you have a verified medical exemption, please email us at with documentation from a physician or other medical professional.

Ticket Transfer/Refund Policy

If your plans change for any reason, tickets may be sold or transferred using the Eventbrite ticketing portal. Use the link in your confirmation email and follow the instructions of nt eEventbrite site.
Ticket-holders who must cancel their trip due to a positive COVID test in the 10 days before the event may contact us at to arrange a refund. Likewise, if you must leave the event due to a positive COVID test or similar medical emergency after your arrival in Las Vegas, email us at AS SOON AS POSSIBLE and we will issue a partial refund for unused days.

Please note, this is an ever-evolving situation and we reserve the right to change our guidelines in response to updated conditions and guidance.

Please check back soon for  requirements for international visitors.


Because this is a fully vaccinated event, we are not requiring masks be worn during BHoF events. We recommend all attendees follow current CDC guidance regarding mask-wearing when in contact with other persons or in public areas. Note that this requirement may change in very short notice depending on the situation in Clark County and advisements from the CDC or local health authorities. We recommend all attendees bring masks with them in case we find it necessary to impose a mask requirement at the last minute.

Last-Minute COVID Diagnoses

In accordance with current CSC and OSHA guidance, Weekender attendees who test positive in the 10 days before the Weekender should isolate for a minimum of 5 days after a positive COVID test (if asymptomatic) or 5 days after their symptoms started (or 24 hours after their fever abates without medication, whichever is later), and should wear a mask for 10 days after a positive COVID test regardless of whether or not they had symptoms. If a positive COVID test causes you to miss all or part of the Weekender, please email us at to arrange a full or partial refund.
