For the Uninitiated.

The 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.

The New York Times named us “one of the country’s more prominent multidisciplinary events” in September 2023 and indeed we have grown to become one of the largest Fringe Festivals in the U.S. and New York State’s largest multidisciplinary performing arts events.  Even better, CITY Magazine named us “Best Arts Event” in their Best of Rochester Awards in January 2024!  *blush*
