About The Friday Legends Show
The Texas Burlesque Festival celebrates the renaissance of burlesque and vaudeville and strives to foster a supportive community among performers across the United States and the world through networking and performance opportunities.
TXBF seeks to promote the art and entertainment of burlesque to audiences in Austin, Texas, and the rest of Texas by putting world-class burlesque on stage!
The Friday night showcase is our Night of Legends. Each year, we bring in one of the great performers from burlesque’s storied past and pay homage to the individuals who helped pave the way for the art form’s development!
Friday night will crown one winner with The Lone Stars and Garters Audience Choice Award! You, the audience member, has an important role to play as it is your response which determines who wins!!
Winners will be eligible for a slot in the Saturday Showcase if chosen and are available. Performers are not required to compete and may opt out of the competition, on any night, if they choose. Winners will perform the same routine with which they won the Friday night showcase.
