A few years ago, a friend invited me to attend a performance during the Indy Fringe Festival. I had no idea exactly what I was getting into, but I loved it and have  been a fan ever since. What is it that hooked me?

  1. Mass Ave is electric during the festival. In addition to all the people moving from show to show, there are street performers, public art and much more.
  2. Performers come from around the world to be a part of Indy Fringe.  Why do they come to Indy?  Unlike many other festivals. performers in Indy earn 100% of the show revenue.  The festival earns revenue from the sale of backer buttons and donations throughout the year.  
  3. The festival is a non-jury program. What that means, is you never know what you will see. The performances are not ranked or rated before they are given a slot. Some shows are great, some are questionable, but each one is memorable in its own way.

Unsure if you will like Fringe?
