Las Vegas’ First-Ever Stripper Parade & Expo Launches Kickstarter

The Las Vegas Stripper Parade & Expo, a large-scale public celebration and a professional B2B conference produced by women and catering specifically to exotic dancing professionals, is set to launch its first-ever event August 10-12, 2019, and is crowdfunding the endeavor with a Kickstarter campaign.

Starting January 22nd, event organizers Polly Superstar and Cory Mervis will host the 30-day Kickstarter, where Early Bird supporters who purchase special reward packages will receive access to the three-day extravaganza at the Plaza Hotel & Casino in downtown Las Vegas.

“Crowdfunding this project enables us to stay true to the vision and prioritize the real needs of the stripper community.” Polly Superstar

The Las Vegas Stripper Parade & Expo will celebrate the industry and its talented performers of all genders, ages and body types with a 7pm showcase Saturday night (10th) before the 10pm parade down Main Street, with dancers enticing the crowds with mardi gras type gifts, along the streets and a-top glittery, dazzling floats.

The official Expo Sunday and Monday will introduce a full schedule of industry networking, informative seminars, vending opportunities and raucous after-show parties. Sunday’s exclusive sunset Pool Party – available only to the show’s Kickstarter supporters – will feature poolside VIP suites, private cabanas, a 12-person hot tub, live entertainment and special contests.

“We have spoken to many dancers who have felt isolated and un-mentored,” says Cory Mervis. “We are creating a parade and expo that is about the performers needs, celebrating them in the industry, and supporting their businesses. It will provide the tools to grow their careers, find long term success, and plan for their financial future.”

“We are excited to grow this one-of-a-kind Parade and Expo in Downtown Las Vegas,” says Derek Stonebarger, Board President for the Las Vegas Arts District.
