Welcome to the Electro Vaudeville Fest! A place where classy lasses and scruffy scoundrels alike come to enjoy a hoppin’, swingin’ good time on their feet.

Jive to the vintage tunes and fresh modern beats of Electro Swing, and let your heart lead you on a journey through time. But beware: you are certain to meet some strange folk along the way! Daring fire breathers light the way to a place where anything goes. Beautiful burlesque dancers tantalize on-lookers with their seductive striptease. Gentlemen, take off your hats for some scintillating can-can and saucy aerial silks. Give a holler for the Retro Fashion Show girls, and a nod waaay up to the stilt-walkers. Buy yourself something fancy at the Vaudeville Market, where local artisans display their dazzling wares.

Electro Swing is the new dance music sensation that has been quickly gaining momentum at a select few events this year. Old-school swing and jazz songs are revamped and revisited, wrapped up in sick modern beats and sultry bass lines. Past meets future in an exciting and unique way that’s sure to get your feet moving.

Our nu-culture welcomes one and all, ordinary and extraordinary. Only here can you meet a London dandy, a dreaded girl and a swing dancer stomping their feet together to the sweet rhythms of electro.

Folks, chances are you have never seen anything like this event. So grab your dancing shoes, we’ll see you on the floor!

@ Performance Works, 1218 Cartwright St.
