A mini-festival titled "February '64" will be happening Friday, February 7 through Sunday, February 9, 2014 at the Muhammad Ali Center and at the Kentucky Center for the Performing Arts - complete with a recreation of the Entire Ed Sullivan Show episode the Beatles appeared on fifty years ago.

The Vixens have gone all out to put together a show full of wonders, wit, and warbles. From the adorable little clown Pierro and stiltwalking belle to the stronglady vocalist and bearded lady aerialist, you'll see everything you'd expect at a carnivale.
It's your chance to run away with the carnival! I don't mean some smelly roadside attraction with shifty folks. I mean a busload of beautiful women! It's like a steam dream come true! The next Va Va Vixens show, "Va va Carnivale" will be opening Thursday at Headliners Music Hall; the show features a bearded lady, a unicorn carousel, large kitty contortionists, a band of sultry gypsies, and much more!
