Passes, Reservations, and Tokens
Pass + Token = Your Admission
Every attendee, regardless of age, must have a day pass, a VIP Pass, or an Artist & Staff Pass to receive a seating token for entry. If you have a day pass voucher, it must be exchanged for a day pass at the box office.
Day Passes can be purchased at any Fringe venue 30 minutes prior to showtime, as well as reserved online with a seat reservation. Day passes are not transferable.

*Please check online schedules for age appropriateness and/or restrictions of individual shows.
VIP Passes can be purchased in advance of the festival for $200 and allow the holder access to any show, on any day, at any time, in any venue without having to stop by the box office. It is THE comprehensive festival entry option that is only on sale until the limited number available are sold out. Once they are gone, they are gone. VIP Passes do not guarantee a seat in a particular show.
VIP Passes will be mailed to patrons who purchase prior to July 20, 2017. Purchases after July 20 will require selection of a Will Call Location; Rarig, Intermedia, or Ritz.
Optional reservations may be bought in advance through the Fringe website. Advance sales stop at 1 pm on weekdays and 2 am on weekends. Your reservation guarantees you a seat at that particular the show. You can pick up your reservation/seating token at the venue 30 minutes prior to the show. Once reservations are purchased, they are guaranteed and will NOT be resold.
You will need both a token and a valid pass for show entry. Pass + Token = Your Admission
