See The Fringe

Welcome to the SECOND ANNUAL Tampa International Fringe Festival!

We are so excited about all of the shows we are presenting this year, and will announce the FULL schedule soon!

How to Fringe:

Buy a BUTTON! You can do this for $3 at any fringe box office at any location or at Fringe Central! This year the BUTTON is NOT required to see shows, but it will get you discounts all around Ybor on food, drinks, coffee, maybe even tattoos, and you’ll help spread awareness about the Fringe! More on that later!

Go to the special events and parties! Every year we have so much to do surrounding the actual shows of the festivals!  Special events include VIP parties, Midnight Cabarets, Karaoke Open Mics, Panel Talks, Fringe Yoga, and so much more!

SEE SHOWS! There will be 30 shows participating in the festival this year, with six performances each! We will be specially designing the program for you to be able to wander from venue to venue with plenty of time to check out shows from your favorite locals and for you to take a chance on something from a far away place.

How does ticketing work? The artists choose a price for their tickets between $5-$13, and 100% of that goes directly into the artists pockets. There is a $3 festival surcharge (to support the festival instead of enforcing buttons, as recommended by 2017 audience members). And of course a small processing fee by the ticketing agent itself.

Get together over food or a drink at Fringe Central or at one of our other events and talk about what you’ve seen! Mingle with folks from all over – audience and artist alike, and talk about what performance means to you, and how you would like for it to move forward, and learn from others’ ideas too!

If you want to seriously fringe, why not have a look at our opportunities page to see how you can help out by volunteering or housing one of our touring artists?

See you at the Tampa Fringe this May!
