2018 FORT COLLINS FRINGE FESTIVAL
Was...July 26, 27, 28, & 29, 2018
But SAVE THE DATE for the July 25th-28th, 2019
The Fringe Festival is a live, performance-art festival. With everything from theatre to magic to dance to film to puppetry to music to circus and fire-breathing, there is something for everyone at the Fort Collins Fringe Festival.
It's place for local and/or emerging artists to produce their performance art. You never know what you are going to experience at the next Fringe Festival! Because of the open and non-juried structure of Fringe, festival goers can expect to see many original works in everything from theater to dance to film to comedy and more. Most pieces are short, one-act pieces so festival-goers can see several performances over the course of an evening at the festival. Pieces are kept technically simple in most cases, which helps keep the festival affordable to audiences. With unique and exciting venues like the Fort Collins Museum of Discovery Otterbox Digital Dome, The Lyric, Wolverine Farm Letterpress & Publick House and Bas Bleu Theatre, it’s easy to get involved in the Fort Collins Fringe Festival, either as a performer or as an attendee.
