The Carnival at The Crossroads kicks off the second night of the Snake Oil Festival by taking you to a forgotten era when the traveling carnival reigned supreme as America's premier form of entertainment. Step into the world of the most daring, desirous, and diabolical variety artists working in the circus and sideshow revival today. Human blockheads, burlesque dancers, glass walkers, musicians, aerialists, belly dancers, hoopers, freaks, and all manner of debaucherous and wicked entertainers will be assembled to give you a belly full of the “other show business”.
* Join us before the show for a special presentation by acclaimed sideshow historian, James Taylor called, Ecdysiastical Originations. In this exhibition, Taylor weaves the enthralling tale of the history of “burlesque" and the variety arts.
