A magical evening of curious amusements: theater, costumes, art and music all to raise funds to support Dutchtown’s new Community Improvement District sponsored by DT2- Downtown Dutchtown.

Early Bird Ticket sales priced at $45 will end September 16. Tickets then will go to the Advance price of $55 or $60 at the door.

The Dutchtown Karneval of Curiosities will take place Wednesday, October 17, 6:30 PM – 10:30 PM, at the Bluffs on Broadway, overlooking the Mississippi River, with both outdoor and indoor events, in a beautiful, contemporary, art-filled mansion.

“People really loved this format for our fundraiser when we did it last time,” said chairperson Caya Aufiero. “The vintage Carnival with its beautiful drama, combined with sideshow oddities speaks to our souls somehow, I think,” she said.

“This unique event combines dramatic showmanship with a little saucy sexiness and mystery, and celebrates the loveable, wacky, artsy side of life, all in a gorgeous, sophisticated setting. That’s pure SouthSide style. “ Aufiero continued.

Tickets gain access to:

  • Four hours of Open Bar with roaming male and female Cocktail Wenches, and scrumptious Appetizers & Desserts from the best places all over the city.
  • Unique South Side Entertainment: The ConvertiblesBand, Lola Van Ella Burlesque Show, The Queens of Drag, Fire Technicians, SLLAW the St Louis Lady Arm Wrestlers
