October 12 – 28, 2018

ABOUT THE FESTIVAL

FringeNYC takes place in Manhattan and uses a juried application process to ensure a festival of innovative, diverse, and vibrant emerging performance from around the world; leveraging our adjudication process as a useful tool to help build cultural equity and provide opportunities for under-represented voices.

FringeNYC utilizes converted spaces and pop-up venues, prioritizing partnering with venues located within a very small geographic area – centered around a FringeHUB, where AUDIENCE, ARTISTS, and ALUMNI can gather.

FringeNYC also includes FringeJR (which this year gets a running start – beginning on October 5th), FringeHIGH, and an annual Indie Convening.

 

Below is a lineup of the 2018 participants.
