July 21-31, 2016 – The Kansas City Fringe Festival is an annual 11-day performing and visual arts extravaganza. It straddles a thin, frayed line between mass appeal and eclectic tastes. Fringe links these two worlds together, showing that it is the bridge you take to be inspired and entertained no matter what your taste may be.
KC Fringe’s roots trace to the Edinburgh Festival Fringe in Scotland, founded on the need to celebrate and provide all artists the opportunity to produce their work.

2016 Festival Opening Night
The best way to dive into Fringe is to attend the opening night party, where the public will see 2-3 minute teasers of many festival performances and offerings. We roll out the Fringe carpet at 5:30pm for the Fringe Walk and teasers begin at 7:00pm. This event is a free, must attend part of the Fringe Festival and will be at the Folly Theater.
Become a Volunteer!
Want to join the fun? It’s easy! Shifts are usually three hours and for each hour donated, you’ll receive three Fringe Bucks – good toward show tickets, merch, and special offers during the festival.
