For The Uninitiated.

The KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival is a 12-day, all-out, no-holds-barred, multi-arts festival. The Fringe features international, national and local artists. It showcases theatre, comedy, dance, music, visual arts, children’s entertainment, physical theatre, musical theatre, opera, poetry, literature and experiences that have yet to even be imagined.

In 2019, over 100,000 people attended the Fringe. We debuted in 2012 with over 30,000 attendees. We are now one of the most attended fringe festivals in the United States. *blush
