The Fringe Festival - FringeArts

*The event has already taken place on this date: Sun, 09/22/2019
The Philadelphia Fringe Festival is a 3-week long, city-wide celebration of innovation and creativity in contemporary performance. Each September, the Festival explodes into every nook and cranny in neighborhoods across Philadelphia with more than 1,000 artistically daring performances, including national and international performances curated by FringeArts, and works that are produced by independent artists and promoted by FringeArts. The party continues late night, every night, with music, food and drink at the FringeArts center on the Delaware River waterfront. This vast assemblage of curated and self-produced innovators offers an unparalleled opportunity to see a cross section of the world’s greatest experimenters at one time, in one city.

Our 2019 Curated Fringe Festival lineup is now on sale. The full lineup of Independently Produced Fringe Festival shows and additional Festival events will be announced later this summer.

Check out our podcast, Happy Hour on the Fringe, with Artistic Producers Zach Blackwood and Katy Dammers to learn more about the themes of the 2019 Fringe Festival, some of the exciting events happening, and the return of the Fringe Festival Bookstore!
