The Fringe Festival is a self-producing performing arts festival where established and emerging artists can present their work free of a selection process. The Fringe Festival takes place over 18 days in July with over 140 productions, roughly 800 individual performances, showcasing 5,000 artists for over 30,000 patrons each year. The Fringe Festival is DC’s largest and most anticipated performing arts festival. We’re calling on you to keep challenging us, keep bringing us art and stories that are relevant and exciting. There’s room for everything at the Fringe – because your voice is important, and we want to give it a home.
Capital Fringe’s Festival is entering its tenth anniversary year. The 2015 Festival hub will be at our new permanent home located in Trinidad at 1358 Florida Ave NE. The space will offer two performance venues and an outdoor space to gather and connect. Performance venues will be located on the H Street corridor and Brookland neighborhoods with a shuttle bus for artists and audiences.
