The Annual New York Burlesque Festival is the largest and most acclaimed festival of its kind and has attracted sold-out crowds since its premiere in 2002. This year marks the 10th annual festival, and producers Thirsty Girl & Pontani Sisters Productions will once again serve up four nights of glitter and glamour in Gotham, with over 120 eye-popping performances from the world's leading burlesque and variety entertainers at four of NYC's hottest performance venues. In addition to tassels and tail feathers, this year's festival offers live music, international DJs, variety and circus performers, boylesque, and a burlesque boutique where you can try on custom corsets, peruse pasties, hair ornaments, vintage dresses, and lingerie, and even get a burlesque make-over.
The Burlesque Festival concludes tonight at Highline Ballroom with The Golden Pastie Awards. The Golden Pastie is one of the most coveted awards in burlesque! Performers are nominated and voted for by their peers and fans in esteemed categories like "Most Likely to Win RuPaul's Drag Race" or "Most Likely to Marry a Millionaire." The polls are tallied and the awards are presented at the closing gala and performance spectacular, held tonight at Highline Ballroom. Nominations will be accepted this July. Don't miss what is sure to be a spectacular evening filled with glamorous gowns, gorgeous gals, and so much more.
