2020 Fringe Festival

Hey, fringers! In early May, we announced the cancellation of our physical festival due to COVID-19, but you know what they say – you can’t keep a good festival down!

We’re turning up the heat this summer and bringing you a new type of fringe experience, a digital fringe experience! We’ll be presenting performances and readings from our 2020 fringe participants, as well as live musical performances on our virtual patio, a charades showdown, and much much more!

We’ll be posting information about our fringe shows and schedule below, but don’t forget to check out our Facebook page for more details and fun fringe activities!

All festival events are free of charge, and the organization is accepting donations to help offset expenses. We have also launched our 2020 t-shirts which are available for purchase here.
