12th Annual Kansas City Fringe Festival

July 21st-31st, 2016

2016 Festival Opening Night

The best way to dive into Fringe is to attend the opening night party, where the public will see 2-3 minute teasers of many festival performances and offerings. We roll our the Fringe carpet at 5:30pm for the Fringe Walk and teasers begin at 7:00pm.

This event is a free, must attend part of the Fringe Festival and will be at the Folly Theater.

Become a Volunteer!

Want to join the fun? It’s easy! Shifts are usually three hours and for each hour donated, you'll receive three Fringe Bucks – good toward show tickets, merch and special offers during the festival.

Become a volunteer by filling out our Volunteer Application Form!

Host An Artist

Every year, the KC Fringe Festival welcomes out-of-town performers from across the nation and from around the world. Whether from India, England, Florida, or Arizona they all have a common need, a place to rest their head. We're looking for KC residents with room in their homes to house these artists. Just complete the Host Questionaire. Questions? Email Denise Deckert at denise@kcfringe.org.

About The 2016 Kansas City Fringe Festival

KC Fringe is a Missouri-based not-for-profit organization whose mission is to support artists, celebrate expression, and engage the community.

We do this by organizing the KC Fringe Festival, an annual 11-day performing and visual arts extravaganza. It straddles a thin, frayed line between mass appeal and eclectic tastes. Fringe links these two worlds together, showing that it is the bridge you take to be inspired and entertained no matter what your taste may be. Below is what you can expect to experience at Fringe.

 
 

FRINGE HISTORY

Our roots trace to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in Scotland, founded on the need to celebrate and provide all artists the opportunity to produce their work.
