Le Petit Carnaval is a French festival featuring Tucson's most sophisticated cultural entertainers gathering at the Fox Theater on Saturday, February 7, 2009 for a special evening of dazzling spectacle. There will be a gathering of indoor and outdoor entertainers, bakeries and vendors. The stage will feature performances by musicians Marianne Dissard with Matt Mitchell and Le Big Band, Le Chat Lunatique and Marvelle. There will also be vaudeville-style performances by Cabaret Bohème. The event begins at 7 pm at the Fox, 17 West Congress. One lane of Congress Street will be closed off in front of the Fox Theatre to make room for the many activities. There will be fire eaters, clowns, buskers and fortune telling. Inside the Fox, local restaurateurs will be serving up baked goods and chocolates. Tucson based Marianne Dissard plays music that is a cross between Southwestern noir and acoustic French pop, and her debut album "L'Entredeux" was produced, composed and performed by Calexico's Joey Burns. Le Chat Lunatique performs music in the style of swing out of Albuquerque. Rock and indie band Marvelle comes from Minneapolis. Tucson's naughty Vaudeville Variety Show, Cabaret Bohème, has been performing to sellout crowds for the past two years. Tickets cost $22 for main floor, $42 for VIP, and $74 for VIP love-seats (seats two) For more information about Le Petit Carnaval,
