Festival Description

Fringe is DC’s annual celebration of the performing arts and much more. You will find us nestled between the vibrant DC neighborhoods of Penn Quarter & Mount Vernon Square. Over 120 companies & thousands of Artists come together—from throughout North America and right here at home—to put on over 800 performances in 20 venues. It is a chance to let loose, meet new friends and enjoy groundbreaking, creative work in the performing arts. Nothing you will see has been censored or juried. It is the most affordable way you will find, for adventurous audiences to connect with exploratory artists. Are you ready?!
