The Denver Fringe Festival is an open-application festival designed to support all genres of performance arts and to attract bold, progressive artistry that is on the fringes of the mainstream theatre tradition. We support independent and emerging artists by encouraging new work, providing a variety of performance venues, promoting the festival and selling advance tickets online. We also support open access to the arts by making sure people can enjoy edgy, eclectic performance – original theatre, comedy, improv, cabaret, dance, immersive theatre – at an affordable price.

The Fringe format started 70 years ago in Edinburgh, Scotland, when groups of artists gathered to perform on the outskirts of the city. That tradition continued, and now Fringe is a national and international phenomenon with festivals in major cities all over the world.
