Fringe Festivals are multi-day, multi-venue performing arts festivals! It all started in 1947 in Edinburgh, Scotland, as an alternative festival that played concurrently with the Edinburgh International Festival. In 1948, Robert Kemp, a local journalist, gave it the name Fringe: “Round the fringe of official Festival drama, there seems to be more private enterprise than before…” Fringes have taken off across the world – and Scranton is proud to have its own, incredible celebration of culture, community & creativity! Though exact models for festivals vary from city to city common core values include being uncensored, centered on the performing arts and diverse! The Scranton Fringe Festival is held annually across several consecutive days in multiple venues throughout downtown Scranton. Theatre, music, dance, film, comedy, puppetry and every other sort of performing-arts-production you can imagine are welcomed on the fringe! The festival is kept accessible and affordable for artists (no application fees, comparably small production fees) and audiences (special free programming, affordable tickets, hopper passes, etc) alike!
