Minnesota Fringe Festival
The Minnesota Fringe Festival is the largest performing arts festival in the Midwest. Our mission is to connect adventurous audiences with adventurous artists. As one of the largest Fringes in North America, Minnesota’s annual Festival welcomes roughly 50,000 audience members to view more than 160 works culminating in over 800 performances by greater than 1,000 artists on 15 stages at 12 venues over 11 days.
Fringe shows are 60 minutes or less with a half hour break between each performance. Attendees can purchase a day pass that allows for entry into any show at any venue on that particular day. Our venues are chosen in clusters to make traveling to multiple shows simple by walking, biking, personal and public transportation options.
