10th Anniversary Fringe Festival Announcement

Written on March 26, 2015

What a difference ten years makes for Capital Fringe. In 2006, the Festival had two staff, operated out of a group house and the only programming was an 11 day Fringe Festival. Now, Capital Fringe has its very own permanent building, year-round programming and has become the second largest Fringe Festival in country. And, this year’s Fringe Festival will once more grow and change – offering more live performance, more ways to connect artists and audiences, a longer Festival that will last nearly a month and all new venues too.
