Minnesota Fringe fosters celebration of the performing arts so that:
- Artists are supported in the development of their craft;
- Audiences expand their appreciation for and notions of art; and
- The Community actively supports the theater.
Beginning in 2018, Fringe will offer a variety of open, supportive forums for free and diverse artistic expression to connect adventurous artists with adventurous audiences year round. Like our flagship festival, we have made every effort to reduce barriers by offering low-cost and free options in easily accessible venues so everyone feels welcome to attend. Please join us to support our creative community that makes Minnesota arts and culture so special.
For Fringe Fans who plan to attend multiple events, a Fringe with Benefits membership includes admission to ticketed events, special offers, and additional opportunities to demonstrate your commitment to sustain Fringe. Enroll online or purchase a membership in person at any of our events and provide critical support to help Fringe go round, year-round.
