WHERE:  Esplanade J

TICKET INFO: Included with BHoF Weekender ticket

Is this your first, or fifteenth, pilgrimage to the biggest event on the international burlesque calendar? Whether you are travelling solo, have brought your whole troupe, whether you come every year or are simply new to the world of crystals and corsets – the sheer number of glitterfolk that travel in for this weekend can be overwhelming, so let us make it easy!

You are invited to a low-key gathering as the joyful madness of the next few days begins. Join other ingenues, meet returning attendees as well as members of the BHoF Production Team, connect with Facebook friends – and maybe even introduce yourself to a past title holder or a Legend!

Seasoned BHoF attendees are encouraged to join the collective and share Vegas survival tips as well as stories from years past. Kicking off with a scavenger hunt, attendees have a chance to win a free application from each presenting festival, swag from BurlyCon, AND a selection of goodies from the BHoF 2018 Vendors! From 7pm onward, keep mingling over cocktails and get your photo snapped on the Red Carpet on the way to the showroom.

Proudly sponsored by The Minneapolis Burlesque Festival, BurlyCon, Colorado Burlesque Festival, Crescent City Burlesque Weekender, Fierce! Queer Performing Arts Festival, Jeezy’s Juke Joint, Nerdlesque Festival, New Mexico Burlesque Festival, Ohio Burlesque Festival, Oklahoma Burlesque Festival, Spellbound Burlesque Productions, and Viva Las Vegas!
