2020 philly fringe festival banner

4 weeks. A city alive with contemporary art.
September 10–October 4, 2020

The Philadelphia Fringe Festival is a 4-week long, city-wide celebration of innovation and creativity in contemporary performance. Each September, the Festival explodes into every nook and cranny of Philadelphia with more than 1,000 artistically daring performances, including national and international performances curated by FringeArts, and works that are produced by independent artists and promoted by FringeArts.

This year’s festival will be predominantly virtual, featuring over 120 works across genres and platforms. A handful of events will take place outdoors, and follow all city and state guidelines around social distancing and public health measures. Scroll down to find shows live this September!

For independent artists looking for resources, visit the Artist page for more information.
