What is it?:
Nearly 50,000 seats filled annually, over 1,000 artists, dozens of works, hundreds of performances at over a dozen venues and spanning almost 20 genres. With those numbers, it seems pretty obvious that Minnesota's annual Fringe Festival is the largest performing arts festival in the Midwest.
Find modern twists on classic tales, politically driven story lines, crying-tears-of-laughter comedic productions, and surprisingly relatable narratives. With performances for all ages, the Minnesota Fringe Festival is a unique and spirited celebration of diversity, artistic expression and voice that connects adventurous artists with adventurous audiences on both a local and national level.
The Fringe Festival is produced by Minnesota Fringe, a publicly supported nonprofit that supports and connects communities through bold risks and new ideas.
