What is a Fringe Festival? The term came from Scotland in the 1940’s, when groups who were not selected to perform in a local theater festival set up performances on the fringes of the main event. Festival goers visited these fringe groups in the evenings after the festival closed, and eventually the fringe performances became the main attraction. The idea of an open, unjuried performance arts festival caught on and Fringe festivals began popping up throughout Europe before making their way to North America.
The mission of the Fort Collins Fringe Festival is to provide a platform for emerging and established artists to perform fun, original, affordable theatre for our community while creating connections between artists, audiences, businesses and organizations.
