2011 Festival Schedule

The countdown to the eighth annual Moisture Festival has begun! The Moisture Festival will open its annual springtime celebration this year at Hale's Palladium on Saint Patrick's Day, March 17. We can't wait to kick off this season under the warehouse bigtop. Created in a brewery warehouse, the atmosphere at The Palladium creates chemistry between audience and performer that is an absolute joy to behold. With four weeks of festival shows at Hale's Palladium this year, there will be even more opportunities to join in the fun.

During the second and third weekends, the festival will again return to ACT - A Contemporary Theatre on March 25, 26 and April 1, 2 for Libertease Burlesque from all angles, in the round, in the beautiful Allen Theatre. In addition, on Sundays, March 27 and April 3, Grand Varietè Shows for all ages will come to life, celebrating the wonderful surprises that guarantee comedy/varietè's endearing spot in the history of live family entertainment.

The Moisture Festival will also return to SIFF, Vashon Island, Georgetown in 2011. One part of the mission for The Moisture Festival is to bring world-class varietè entertainment to Seattle neighborhoods and to the surrounding area.

The Moisture Festival and The Seattle International Film Festival join forces once again to present an exceptional experience with a one-of-a-kind feast for your eyes and ears, bringing together film and live performance. Further south, Vashon Island and Georgetown have long been regarded as centers of creativity with communities that support art and fun, so returning the festival to both locations is irresistible. The Georgetown Ballroom is one of Seattle’s hidden treasures and a perfect venue for varietè shows. Moisture Festival will again bring a quirky and entertaining April Fools weekend to the neighborhood. Open Space for Arts and Community is a spacious warehouse slightly off the beaten path on Vashon Island. It is the new destination for shows and gatherings on the island – funky and elegant with plenty of parking! We'll ferry our clown car to the island for the final weekend of the festival.

Over the next few days stay tuned to our new website calendar for a detailed listing of each and every one of the over 50 shows we have planned.
