Denver, CO — 5/16/22

The Denver Fringe Festival is back for the third year June 23-26 at 10 venues throughout RiNo/Five Points with 40+ original shows in all genres of performing arts – twice as many as last year! An arts festival like no other, the Fringe attracts bold, risky, daring work from both local and national performers. A tiny sampling of this year’s lineup captures the variety:

  • a nationally-touring multi-award-winning one-woman cabaret dream play about the life of Josephine Baker starring Tymisha Harris
  • Elaborate and innovative circus shows from local circus troupes (think Cirque du Soleil) with aerial, partner acrobatics, juggling, dance, clowning and more
  • immersive theatrical experiences where the audience is at the center of the story

What makes the Denver Fringe Festival unique?

  • It’s part of the global Fringe festival movement in some 300 cities worldwide
  • It’s an open-application festival that attracts diverse artistic voices
  • All work is original and runs the gamut of performing arts forms
  • It’s unjuried, uncensored, and gives the majority of the ticket sales back to the artists
  • It provides a platform for independent and emerging artists
  • Fifty percent of the performers are local; fifty percent come from out-of-state
  • Performance venues range from theaters to non-traditional spaces like breweries and photo studios
  • Tickets are just $15 so more people have the chance to experience live performing arts
  • Venues are all within RiNo and Five Points
  • Shows are all under an hour so you can see and experience multiple shows in one evening

The Denver Fringe also includes a KidsFringe for the youngest arts lovers – a weekend long family-friendly mini-fest with free workshops and shows for kids and families at the RiNo Art Park Community Hub (1900 35th St), Saturday, June 25 and Sunday, June 26.

The Denver Fringe strives to make the performing arts accessible to everyone. Tickets are just $15 for shows; an all-festival pass is $75 and gives access to as many shows as you want. Ticketing is live on the website at denverfringe.org.
