Our entertainment offerings are the cornerstone of the Southern Sideshow Hootenanny Foundation and we are so grateful to have so many wonderful events going throughout the year.
The Southern Sideshow Hootenanny aka our main event occurs every March in beautiful Cafe Istanbul in New Orleans. Applications are released in the Fall for those interested in performing. As we aim for the inclusivity that marked the Golden Age of Sideshow, we encourage performers from a wide array of backgrounds to apply.
For those unable to travel to New Orleans (or unable to wait until March) we offer regional showcases throughout the year. Don't have a showcase in your area? E-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org to see about setting one up!
Our newest addition in terms of entertainment is our partnership with The Oddities Market, a collaboration between Freeman and Fugate Oddities Co. and Obscura Antiques and Oddites. We are thrilled to be working with them to organize After and Pre-parties for their markets now taking place in Atlanta, Philadelphia, and Nashville.
