Fringe Run Venue

July 12 - 29, 2018

2018 Fringe Festival Application will open in November

All Fringe Run Venue participants pay a $585 participation fee. The participation fee guarantees the participant a venue, venue manager, complete box office services, a listing in the printed Festival Guide, and an individual show page on the Fringe website. Each presenting group is required to take part in a workshop on Fringe Festival marketing, box office and production. Additionally, all participants must pay a $275 insurance fee. (Artists/companies who have the appropriate business liability insurance are exempt.)

Fringe Run Venue participants receive 50 - 70% of the ticket revenue from their production. We determine that percentage using several factors, which are specific to venue assignment and number of performances. Most Fringe Festival participants are scheduled for five performances. In 2017, participants in our Festival received an average of $1,189.87 in ticket revenue with some receiving up to $3,980.

In the Fringe Run Venue application, applicants are asked to describe the sort of venue they would prefer for producing their production (stage size, technical requirements, etc.). Additionally, outlining the objectives for the work they wish to present.

If you have any questions, please contact David Carter, Program Manager at or call 202.737.7230
