The Moisture Festival, the world’s largest celebration of comedy, varietè, and vaudeville, returns for four weeks this spring in Seattle. The festival runs Thursday, March 15, through Sunday, April 8, and features highly skilled performance, where the imagination is the limit. Shows are mixed with bizarre talent that’s often humorous—hence the comedy and variety.
Entertainment during the Moisture Festival includes shows with aerialists, jugglers, magicians, comedians, dancers, rope acts, bubble acts, clowns, acrobats, can-can girls, strong women and men, tap dancers, drill teams, and musicians. Some burlesque stars will also perform during the festival.
Shows during the Moisture Festival are scheduled in two locations. The main theater is at Hale’s Palladium, in the Hale’s Brewery warehouse located between Fremont and Ballard at 4301 Leary Way NW in Seattle. Libertease Cabaret, the burlesque shows, are at the Broadway Performance Hall, 1625 Broadway, on Capitol Hill.
