The Fringe Festival is open to anyone who wants to produce their own show. For some, it's a once-a-year opportunity to create a show; for professional companies, it can be an opportunity to try something new. All shows are accepted.
Recently we transitioned into the Neighborhood Fringe, where each neighborhood had its own section in the Festival guide, rather than what had been collectively labeled in the past as Philly Fringe. This enabled each neighborhood to become its own Fringe Festival - South Philly Fringe, Kensington Fringe, Old City Fringe, etc. It also allowed audiences to more easily plan an outing. Our plan is that each neighborhood gains an artistic identity through the Fringe Festival that provides a vibrant cultural experience unique to that neighborhood. This way too, all shows become "centrally" located.
If you have any questions, please contact Jordan Layman, Neighborhood Fringe Coordinator at Jordan@FringeArts.com or 267.612.4899.

MARKETING & PR
Please include in your Press Release the following Festival statement:
FringeArts (formerly Philadelphia Live Arts Festival & Philly Fringe) exists to commission, develop and present a range of high-quality contemporary performing and visual arts. Every September the Fringe Festival features boundary-breaking work created by some of the most renowned contemporary artists from our region and around the world, and serves as a collective home for artists to bring their artistic visions to audiences without any curatorial barriers. The community is enriched as art takes over neighborhoods, animating the spaces of Philadelphia from traditional theaters to corner bars and vacant storefronts.
