Support our mission, and reach an audience who is enthusiastic, loyal, young (56% are under 50), well-educated, and culturally-engaged. Align your brand with some of the most daring, bold, and imaginative artists from Philadelphia and around the world.

Please note that we are not offering ads in the Fringe Festival guide this year, but we are thrilled to offer a variety of additional advertising opportunities on our App, in the Curated Playbill, and on our tickets.
