Minnesota Fringe Audiences
Minnesota Fringe has a mission to connect adventurous artists with adventurous audiences. Without our patrons attending shows put on by the intrepid producers who share their work on the stage, we can’t meet our objectives. In other words, you complete us.
Fringe audiences number nearly 50,000 each year and represent the full spectrum of age, race, ethnicity, gender identification, ability, and geography. Attendees are loyal and passionate, which is no surprise in a region known for its tremendous support of the performing arts scene. Our festival takes place in a metropolitan area often ranked in the top 3 nationally for seats per capita and in a state that is home to more than 400 theaters. Minnesotans consistently demonstrate they value the arts!
Attending the festival is uncomplicated and inexpensive. Audience members purchase a single ticket or buy a day pass that allows entry to any show at any venue on that day.
If you’re a hard core Fringe Fan, then you should take advantage of our VIP Pass. One payment will nab you a pass that is good any day, any place, any time. A limited number of these passes exist, so get yours as soon as they go on sale. For more detailed information, visit our page on Box Office Policies.
You can also attend the Minnesota Fringe Festival for FREE! Just hop over to our Volunteers page and sign up for a minimum of three shifts to receive day pass vouchers as part of your Fringe benefits package.
We have a deal for you!
