Fringe Festival 2011


Capital Fringe Festival
Thursday, July 4 through Sunday, July 24, 2011

Performance Preview – Evening of Friday July 1st
NO LATE SEATING: All seats are general admission. There is no late seating at Fringe because it’s too disruptive for the audience and difficult for the all-volunteer box officers to manage. With only 30 minutes between performances, things run on time.

2011 Capital Fringe Festival will launch its festival schedule and ticket sales for this year’s lineup of over 100 shows at 19 venues on June 20, 2011. The area’s largest performing arts festival takes place Thurs., July 7 through Sun., July 24, 2011.

This year—the festival’s sixth—about 2,000 participating performing artists participate in shows ranging from comedy to dance, from musical theatre to experimental performance art. Fringe staff expects to issue more than 30,000 tickets to the 18-day festival.

The festival’s beer tent, The Baldacchino Gypsy Tent Bar, will open on June 20 for a series of pre-festival events. After seeing a show, patrons are encouraged to visit The Baldacchino Gypsy Tent Bar at Fort Fringe to share your experience and hear about other shows.  This is a great opportunity to build bridges between communities and also between the artists and patrons.

Host a Visiting Artist
Tuesday - Sunday, July 19th - 24th

Hosts Receive
One 110 Proof Pass for admission to 10 shows
One Fringe Festival 2011 Admission Button

Capital Fringe is still in need of volunteers to host eight visiting artists for up to six nights.  If you have a spare bed, a sleep sofa, or room to set up an air mattress, please consider hosting one or more of these artists; if not, please forward this request to friends, relatives, and colleagues who do.  Every year, Capital Fringe welcomes dozens of out-of-town artists from cities here and abroad. As Fringe artists generally don't have funds for hotels and are truly appreciative of the volunteers who host Fringe artists.

Capital Fringe staff will coordinate with each potential volunteer host the dates available to host a performing artist and any other specific criteria of the host to ensure a favorable match.  For more information on hosting an artist and to sign up for hosting an artist contact
