Help FringeArts present world-class, contemporary performing arts that challenge convention and inspire new ways of thinking.
As the central hub of innovative performance in Philadelphia, FringeArts brings together local, national, and international artists with diverse audiences for unconventional and expectation-defying experiences.
Founded in 1997, we’ve grown our programming from a site-specific, ten day festival to a year-round, multifaceted arts presenter and incubator situated at our historic home along the Delaware River Waterfront. Today, FringeArts offers a year of themed festivals highlighting the vanguard in theater, interdisciplinary performance, dance, comedy, circus, music, food, and more, culminating in our signature Fringe Festival every September.
We partner with artists from across the city and the world, as well as our institutional peers, to bring the very best in creative expression to Philadelphia. We are committed to sharing these works with our community, offering access, artistic context, and inspiration to audiences of artists, families, students, and daring cultural consumers of all ages.
We are grateful to our generous patrons and partners who have helped FringeArts expand our programming, reach, and community engagement over the years. With our 25th anniversary approaching, we seek even greater heights to offer sustained relevance, accessibility, and creative exploration to our audiences. At the core of FringeArts is the goal to make Philadelphia a place where anyone can experience bold performance with the potential to stimulate, challenge, and change perspectives. We hope you will join us in making this vision a reality.
