“We needed something to bring us together to celebrate— celebrating that 2020 is over, celebrating artists, celebrating volunteers, celebrating sponsors,” says Brian Sikorski, Orlando Fringe marketing director.m. Join us out on the lawn of some of the most talented groups of people here in Orlando! The Fringe festival is back with all new shows that will amaze you, your family, and your friends. Are you ready to get your Fringe on?

So, What exactly is Fringe?

To put it into one word, fringe is “Unique”. The Orlando Fringe Festival is a 14-day immersive cultural experience held annually in mid-May, featuring 850 ticketed theatrical performances and a free outdoor music festival. The Orlando Fringe Festival Is a completely free zone. A safe space for you to be whoever it is you are or want to be. All without judgment. There is no such thing as the word “Judgement” When you are at Orlando Fringe.

The Festival is committed to having a respectful, safe environment for everyone. Free from any harassment, violence, bullying, discrimination, and any other kinds of abuse. All community members are to be treated with respect and dignity. The Festival provides opportunities for everyone that contributes and participates in all events and activities or behaviors that discriminate on the grounds of race, gender, age, marital status, religious beliefs, citizenship, mental and physical abilities, or sexual orientation.

Do not forget to also grab your fringe pin. You will not be able to enter your show without one. Available at the box office and merch tables. They can be used over and over again. They are one of the two things needed for admission to a show, and they make you look really cool.
