Created in 2014, with it's inaugural run in 2015, The Southern Sideshow Hootenanny is the only large-scale gathering of sideshow performers, producers, and fans currently happening in the Southern United States. It takes place every year in late winter in the great city of New Orleans to offer a break from dark, frigid days, as well as to give performers a chance to brush up on their skills and dust off and polish acts before the start of touring season. 

This years theme is Growing Up Sideshow. We are focusing on people that have grown up performing and grown as performers because of sideshow. We are celebrating the people we have become because of Sideshow! 

The goals of The Southern Sideshow Hootenanny are:
*to celebrate the great American art form of sideshow
*to foster growth in the community and among individual performers through workshops, panels, peer review, and one-on-one consultations with some of the top performers and producers
*to educate the general public about sideshow, it's history, and traditions
*to have a damn good time with some of the most entertaining folks you'll ever meet!
