12th Annual Kansas City Fringe Festival

July 21-31, 2016

WTF - What's the Fringe?

The KC Fringe Festival is 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.

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 out 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.

About The 2016 Kansas City Fringe Festival

WTF - What's the Fringe?

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.
