Festival 2023

March 29-April 1

Applications are open!

The Vancouver International Burlesque Festival will be back March/April 2023 and both in-person and virtually!

Get ready to see each other in real life again because... it's gonna get weird (and always titillating)!

We're cooking up something delicious for you all - full details coming soon!

All VIBF events are 18+ only


The Buffies

Dust-off your eleganza and prepare for a glamorous award show highlighting some of the people that make the Vancouver burlesque community shine. Plus catch some fresh new faces as they showcase what the new era of burlesque has to offer!

Full line-up coming in early 2023!

T.I.T Talks

Join us for sips and stories at this intimate evening of connection and titillating conversation. TIT Talks is a one-of-a-kind event offering unique perspectives on burlesque. This intimate evening encourages compelling conversation and shares dimensions of being a burlesque performer that are seldom discussed publicly.

2023 line-up coming soon!

The Showcases

2023 line-up coming soon!

VIBF After Party

There's no party like a VIBF after party! Next year's party antics will be announced soon so stay tuned as we share the fun ways we will be celebrating the 2023 festival!


Anti-Oppression Progressive


In 2020 we included opportunities for the burlesque community to access meaningful ways we can evolve as industry leaders, producers, and teachers. In 2021, we continued this learning by introducing an Anti-Oppression Progressive that will cover topics including:

  • Fundamentals of Diversity - Equity, and Inclusion

  • Disrupting Unconscious Bias

  • Unlearning Anti-Blackness

Stay tuned post-festival for the remainder of our 2023 progressive anti-oppression workshop schedule!
