Festival Description

Each year from the last weekend of July into the first weekend of August the Buffalo Infringement Festival features an eclectic array of performances. Multiple venues (numbering approximately 50) set the stage for over 700 performances, and more than 350 plays, including parties, films, bands, art installations, visual arts, music and more… The only thing to be expected about a fringe event is to expect the unexpected — experimental and eclectic works and performances by independent artists will reign supreme! Oh, yes an of course there is always something controversial to stir the imagination.

Festival Dates July 25 - August 4, 2013

  • The Buffalo Infringement Festival is 11 days of under the radar art. During the festival, the city comes alive with a range of eclectic, independent, experimental, and controversial art of all forms. Originating in Allentown, art bursts from every corner of the city, pumping creativity and absurdity along the way. The Buffalo Infringement Festival is a non-profit-driven, non-hierarchical endeavor organized by volunteers in our community. Infringement continues its three-fold mission of providing exposure to regional artists, building relationships with local venues and creating space for public art. Infringement welcomes all musicians, visual artists, dancers, poets, actors, filmmakers, performance artists, and street performers to submit a proposal.
  • There are no fees to enter and every application is accepted.
