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.

So, what's happening on the FRINGE in 2019?

Check out our program for our selection of shows, events, and more!

Opening Night Teasers July 16th - All Ages
July 17th - Mature Audiences

The best way to dive into Fringe is to attend the opening night teasers. This year, there will be two nights 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. The first night will feature Fringe shows for all ages (G and some PG), while the second night of teasers will feature the rest of the PG shows and those specifically geared toward mature audiences (R). 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.

Late Nite On the Fringe July 19th - 20th
July 26th-27th

Fringe likes to stay up late. Join us after hours at The Haverty Family Yards behind Union Station. 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.

Closing Night Party 6-9 PM JULY 28: HAVERTY FAMILY YARDS

Celebrate the end of another great Fringe at our closing night party at The Haverty Family Yards, behind Union Station (next to the Planetarium).  The party starts at 6:00 PM. It’s a great place to say goodbye to all the artists and thank our volunteers for all their hard work during Fringe. Join us for the exciting announcement of the top shows of the 2019 KC Fringe while enjoying light food and drink. Remember to bring a blanket or lawn chair
