Capital City Burlesque is deeply honoured to announce that we have been selected to perform at this year's Vancouver International Burlesque Festival!

We look forward to joining burlesque stars from around the world - including Reigning King of Boylesque Ray Gunn and Canadian Burlesque Legend Judith Stein -  this May at the Vogue Theatre in downtown Vancouver. 

Show Your Support

All costs associated with bringing our group to Vancouver are being paid for out-of-pocket by our twelve participating members. Capital City Burlesque is currently fundraising to help defray the costs for travel and accommodations.

If you would like to support CCB in our fundraising efforts, there are many opportunities:

Attend our VIBF or BUST! Fundraiser Event: on Tuesday, April 15 at On The Rocks 

Our dancers will be performing a short set, including our festival entry and a few other favourites, and will be on hand for the duration of the event to socialize with fans and supporters. Tickets are $10 each and one beverage is included in the cost of the ticket. 100% of ticket sales will go directly to support our troupe.

Contribute to our IndieGoGo Campaign

In addition to the incredible feeling of satisfaction you’ll get from supporting a troupe that is quickly becoming an Edmonton institution, we are pleased to offer many exciting perks to our IndieGoGo supporters, including: signed photos, handmade pasties, table reservations at upcoming shows, and private lessons with the CCB ladies.

Donate Products or Services to our Silent Auction

Local entrepreneurs and businesses are invited to donate to our Silent Auction to be held the evening of our VIBF or BUST! fundraiser event on Tuesday, April 15. Contact us at capitalcityburlesque@gmail.com for more information on how you can donate.

Help Spread the Word

Like us on Facebook, retweet us on Twitter, and share a link to our website with anyone who might be interested in our cause.

Thank You!

Without your support, Capital City Burlesque would not have this amazing opportunity. Thank you to all of you - family, friends, and fans - for coming out to shows and cheering us on. We can't wait to bring a little bit of Edmonton Burlesque to the world!
