This was our second outing to Oxnard Steampunkfest at Heritage Square. Heritage Square is a very cool little park full of old Victorian Farm Houses in the outskirts of Oxnard, CA - right on the cusp of Los Angeles.
We performed for them last year - 2 circus shows and one burlesque show late in the evening in the bar of the on site restaurant - La Dolce Vita. This year they wanted us to up our game for the patrons of the event.
This year we brought 2 circus shows each day and one burlesque show Saturday evening right as the event ended. We brought Crocodile Tears, Sapphire Starfire, Frsky (new!), THAT GUY (new!) and Eve Riot to the event.
We presented two different shows at each circus increment. We had prime real estate at the event - right in the middle of the vendor corridor so that all people at the event were passing by to take a moment or for the whole show!
Our first circus act had the following acts:
Our second circus act had the following numbers:
We also had hooping games during each act with awards for our typically tiny volunteers!
Our final show was the Sexy Beast Burlesque that we performed in the basement bar of La Dolce Vita. Eve Riot was the mistress of ceremonies for this little intimate event.
This event is always a joy. In between acts the troupe interacted with other performers - like the pianist Dennis, who allowed us to sing along to his excellent performances including Bohemian Rhapsody! We hung out with our vendor friends and met new convention attendees! .
All in all this event is so much fun, not very stressful, and great time to be had by all!
