TiFf Special Events

Let’s get Fringey!

Besides seeing the shows, Tampa Fringe 2018 is full of ways that you can make it your festival, or OUR festival, together. Come by our Fringe Central Gaspar’s Grotto, or come along to any of these events!


Wednesday May 2nd – Pre-Fringe Previews @ CL Space 7pm – FREE!



Thursday May 3rd – Open Mic Open Night @ Fringe Central Gaspar’s Grotto 10pm – FREE!

Hosted by Jackson Sturkey alongside the TiFf House Band Mike Milazzo and Dan Ricker! You don’t have to be a TiFf performer to get on stage! Bring us your music, your poetry, your funnies, whatever you want!





Monday May 7th –      Fring-E-Oke @ Gaspar’s Grotto 9pm – FREE!

With Gaspar’s as our new Fringe homebase, how can we not indulge in their karaoke?! After the shows at The Attic & Crowbar, let’s sing it out together!



Friday May 11th – A Light in the Attic Cabaret @ The Attic 12:30AM (doors 12:15AM) Get Tickets HERE

Hosted by Jackson Sturkey, catch some fringe artists doing something different, in a late night cabaret of extravagance! Featuring acts from local burlesquers, the House Band, and some folks that didn’t get in the lottery but are just so fringey we couldn’t resist inviting them. Last year’s cabaret was over-sold, so we recommend grabbing your ticket now online. And don’t worry, the bar at The Attic will be serving!


Saturday May 12th – Closing Night VIP Awards Party @ Fringe Central Gaspar’s Grotto 10pm – FREE!

Join us for our Open Space Panel Discussions Weekdays @ Fringe Central Gaspar’s Grotto 4-530pm – FREE!

  • What is fringe? What is art even? What is Open Space? The right people will converge and figure what needs to be figured out, out. Sound hippie-dippy? Don’t worry, we’ll explain Open Space at the Pre-Fringe Previews, and after that, will post more here so you can bring your feet to the table when the time is right.
