Haven't had enough Fringe? We thought that might be the case...

Check out all of the ways you can play on the Fringe before and after the main events.

Opening Night Teasers Thursday, July 19

The best way to dive into Fringe is to attend the opening night party, where the public will have an opportunity to sample two minute teasers of many festival performances and offerings. We roll out the Fringe carpet at 6:00pm for the Fringe Walk, and teasers begin at 7:00pm. This event will be at Union Stations’ Extreme Screen and is free to the public. Public parking is available in the West Yards’ parking garage located on the west side of Union Station.

Opening Reception 6:00 to 6:45 PM
Show Starts at 7:00 PM

Late Nite On the Fringe July 20, 21, 27, 28

Fringe likes to stay up late. Join us after hours at The Haverty Family Yards behind Union Station (next to the Planetarium). Hang out with the artists, crew, and volunteers as you enjoy local bands and Schlafly brews. Late Nite on the Fringe admission is free with your Fringe Button.

Late Nite starts at 10:00 PM and goes until 1:00 AM.
