2020 philly fringe festival banner

4 weeks. A city alive with contemporary performance.
September 9–October 3, 2021

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.

Fringe Festival Brochures are on their way to mailboxes and FringeArts! In the meantime, you can check out our digital Fringe Festival Brochure here

The 2021 Fringe Festival is presented by

Health & Safety

The 2021 Fringe Festival will take place predominantly in-person. To help protect the health and safety of audiences, artists, staff, and our greater community, patrons are required to wear masks at all indoor performances.

Additionally, all indoor FringeArts Curated events will require proof of vaccination to attend. Audience members will be asked to show proof of vaccination before entering a performance venue. Accepted forms for proof of vaccination include a physical vaccine card with your name on it or a digital photo of your vaccine card on a cell phone.

Some independently produced shows also require proof of vaccination. Please reference individual event details for show-specific health and safety guidelines.

If you are feeling unwell, experiencing any COVID-related symptoms, or come into close contact with someone who has COVID-19 up to 14 days before a performance, please stay home.

These guidelines may evolve depending on local health and safety recommendations.
