Festival Month!

Friday’s Festival Fact

A multi-part series highlighting the many festivals in Cincinnati in May.

Cincinnati Fringe Festival

This year marks the sixth season of the Cincinnati Fringe Festival. A brief history from the Fringe website:

“As with other Fringe Festivals worldwide, our roots trace to the Edinburgh Fringe Festival in Edinburgh, Scotland, which began 51 years ago when eight groups who, not invited to perform in the larger Edinburgh Festival of the Arts, staged their own "fringe" performances. Undaunted and determined, these companies created makeshift theatres on the outskirts - or "fringe" - of the established festival. Soon the Fringe Festival gained a large and loyal following, outstripping the mainstream festival.”

Voyeur (A six ticket package) and Full Frontal All-Access Passes are now available at the Fringe website. Click on TICKETS.

In addition, Visual Fringe also just announced this year’s artists and event that will be taking place. The exhibit will again be at the Cincinnati Art Academy and a new mural will be painted on the north side of the Know Theatre.

Oh, and keep up with the Fringe at their blog.
