The festival kicks off at 8 p.m. on Thursday, Aug. 4. Hank E. Panky and the Doll Carousel perform; the LGBT Center of Greater Cleveland's Ryan Zymler serves as the host. On Friday, Aug. 5, the festival continues with “a unique nouveau ­burlesque experience that is energetic and notably over the top.” Ken Schneck hosts; headliners include Red Herring, the Doll Carousel and Eileen Galvin. The Saturday Night Gala on August 6 will bring “elegance and grace laced with sass.” Headline acts include James & the Giant Pasty and Eliza DeLite. Stand­up comedian Bill Squire hosts.
