What is a fringe festival?

Fringe festivals began in Edinburgh, Scotland in 1947. There, a number of performing artists who were not official participants in the Edinburgh International Festival decided to produce their own work in empty stores and church basements. Thus, their work was staged literally “on the fringe” of the established festival.

The concept was an immediate success and the fringe events soon became just as popular as the official festival. Today, fringe festivals around the world vary, lasting from a few days to a few weeks. Shows are kept brief and technical requirements simple, introducing audiences to new genres as a performing art “smorgasbord.”
