The Dallas Burlesque Festival began in 2009, as a vision of Missy Lisa to bring together some of the best burlesque in the world in one showcase in front of adoring Dallas Fans. That first year packed the historic Texas theatre full of screaming fans. Missy grew the festival every year with the help of Ginger Valentine and Black Mariah, in addition to scores of many other hard working individuals, to grow the festival into the annual event which features three shows over two days, and features workshops and burlesque enrichment for all. 


2017 hosted the 9th Annual Dallas Burlesque Festival. The 2012 Reigning Queen of Burlesque, Lou Lou D'Vil headlined thefestival. Please take a look through this site and bookmark us to keep up with news and announcements.
