Since 1997, the annual Fringe Festival has been the place to see Philadelphia’s contemporary and experimental performing artists within a 17-day period. The 2018 Fringe Festival is sure to impress once again as over 1,000 performances are put on at traditional and bizarre — including digital — venues from September 6 to 23.
The Fringe Festival is open to anyone who wants to produce their own show. For some, it's a once-a-year opportunity to create a show; for professional companies, it can be an opportunity to try something new. All shows are accepted, in the spirit of the international “Fringe” movement. Performances take place in nine neighborhoods throughout the greater Philadelphia region.
Here is our master list of all things Fringe 2018! The best part? Many of this year's Fringe offerings are Funsavers! Make sure to check back as new events will be added as we get them.

In addition to these great live performances, there will be shows on the Internet as part of Digital Fringe. You can view the Digital Fringe pieces on FringeArts' website when the shows go live at the beginning of the festival.
Throughout and after the festival you can grab a nightcap and snack at La Peg, a brasserie and beer garden at the FringeArts’ center along the Delaware River.
