The Coney Island USA Spring Gala is the premiere fundraising event for the arts organization that brings New York City the Mermaid Parade, Coney Island Circus Sideshow, Burlesque at the Beach, The Coney Island Museum and a large number of other beloved programs. This benefit draws a host of celebrities, trendsetters, and superstars of the Burlesque and Sideshow movement. The 2013 Spring Gala is titled The Burlesque Manifesto and will honor Coney Island USA’s role in beginning the neo-burlesque movement that is now a global sensation.
This past October, Coney Island USA suffered severe damage to the Sideshows by the Seashore Theater, Gift Shop, Freak Bar and Denny’s Ice Cream during Superstorm Sandy. Proceeds from the Gala will go toward rebuilding and getting our programming ready for a successful 2013 summer season.
