Photographs from Previous Sideshows
Sideshow 1 & 2 - 2006 & 2007 at The Cannery - 520 E. 3rd Street

The photos for the first two shows are grouped together because it is hard to distinguish between the two shows. I'm also certain there are a lot more photos available for these shows and they will be added when found.
Sideshow 3 - 2008 at The Merc - E. Third Street

I was only able to locate a few photos for this show - more will be added as found.

This show was held in an old, funky, empty bar space - Bellydancers, as evidenced by the photos, were one of many interesting acts to perform. Mayor Rhine McClin attended this show.
Sideshow 5 - 2010 at the Armory Building in the Oregon District
Before Shots

This Sideshow was probably the best documented of all the shows, at least in numbers of photographs. This show has been divided into three sections - before, during, and after. If you ever wondered what went into building a Sideshow, start here.

During Shots

For this Sideshow, we were limited by the Fire Marshall to only having 80 people inside at a time - as a result, we had a line to get in almost all night. But now you can see images of the show with no waiting!

After Shots

A rarely documented aspect of the Sideshow, this is what happens after a show - often times this is the most fun for the participants as we are quite spent but still reveling in the aftermath of a great art show.
