A cosplay burlesque show inspired by Japanese pop culture! This is an 18+ event.

What is Burlesque?

Burlesque is a theatrical presentation set to music and usually involving strip tease. It can be sexy, gory, funny, emotional, and so much more! Burlesque is for every BODY (18+) - regardless of size, race, gender, age, ability, body shape or sexual orientation. At Naka-Kon, there will be no full nudity, however, you will see some skin. If that makes you uncomfortable in any way, we advise you not to attend.

Check out the performers for this year here!

Expectations and Etiquette

This is an 18+ ticketed event so attendees will need to provide proof of ticket purchase as well as present their 18+ wristband at the door. See details on event registration below. Respectful audience participation is encouraged! If you like something you see, cheer! Clap! We want to hear your appreciation! But please don't have conversations during the routine - it's very distracting to the performers and we want them to be able to give you the best show possible. We also recommend watching with your eyes and not through your cell phone. Bringing cash for tips is also encouraged and appreciated, but not expected.

Physical Contact

Do not touch anyone, performer or patron, without their consent. Our performers are contractually obligated to obtain your consent before touching you as well. If giving tips, please ask for permission before touching any of the performers. Naka-Kon Harassment policies apply to both attendees and performers.
