2022 Registration Options

Independent artists are among some of those most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, and FringeArts is doing what we can to support artists in this difficult time. Artists should keep in mind that COVID-19 restrictions at Festival time may ultimately impact the way performances can be staged.

We have again made the decision to waive registration fees for the 2022 Fringe Festival, save for a $20 processing fee that goes directly through our registration platform, Eventotron.

To discuss your 2022 Fringe Festival plans, reach out to the Independent Artist Programs Manager, April Rose at, or schedule a consultation online.

Events & Updates

We are currently holding virtual artist workshops to help prepare for next year’s Philadelphia Fringe Festival. We are holding sessions on fundraising, budgeting, marketing, and ticketing. Please see the pages for each event to learn more and to RSVP!
