To All Fringe Performers,

2018 festival dates are September 6 – September 15, 2018.

Indie Theatre is where I have spent my life and I wouldn’t want to be any place else. I love the excitement of new work and the creative minds of the artists who present it. I love risk taking and what better place to experience it than at a Fringe Festival.

A festival that does not curate and proudly returns 100% of ticket sales to the performing companies. A festival that has inexpensive tickets. A festival that celebrates community, collaboration, and experimentation. A festival that relies on the volunteers and staff who support it. A festival that promises and delivers some tears, some laughter, some thought-provoking work, and always a few surprises!

The San Francisco Fringe Festival is a proud member of a network of Fringes in North America – CAFF – that support all of this and more. For the past 27 years the San Francisco Fringe Festival has brought new and exciting work to the stage and each year we look forward to what the fringe will bring.

Happy Fringing,

Producer, San Francisco Fringe Festival
