Far more than your run-of-the-mill burlesque or nightclub event, The Carnivalesque Roadshow offers an immersive experience into the enticing world of acrobats, freaks, roustabouts, barkers, dandies and women of questionable virtue.
Try your hand at games of skill on the Midway!
Be shocked & amazed by oddities inside our “Ten-In-One” with sideshow poster art by James Taylor !
Witness the libidinous temptations of the dance of forbidden vice!
Hear dark tales of extraordinary madness whispered into the ears of fallen maidens! Thrill to lithe sensuality of aerial artistry and athletic aplomb!
Enjoy the twist & turns of flexible comedic contortion!
