We do this by organizing the KC Fringe Festival, 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. Below is what you can expect to experience at Fringe.
You are invited to a free, one-hour peek behind the Fringe curtain! Join the iFringe Team for wine and cheese (we’re classy like that) and find out why we created the 11-day arts explosion known as the KC Fringe Festival. It happens every July and is filled with all types of art, ranging from spoken word to theatre. Hear inspiring stories from artists and individuals whose lives have been transformed. Email email@example.com or call 913-205-0999. It's free and fun!
The Fruck is the Fringe Art Truck — a mobile art gallery, mobile classroom and mobile billboard, and sometimes a mobile canvas. It travels daily throughout the festival (see Fruck schedule).
For a number of years we have offered free workshops at YOUth Fringe during the festival. Last season we added teen playwriting and adult classes for beginners through master classes. See more
It has always been a dream of the KC Fringe Team to add an educational component to our activities. For a number of years we have offered free workshops at YOUth Fringe during the festival. Last season we added teen playwriting workshops and adult classes for beginners through Master Classes with visiting and local artists. But with so much talent and creativity within our artist base we wanted to do more and with that Fringe Academy is born.
Starting last fall we were able to add K-8 art and photography classes in urban schools. Many other classes are under development including youth and teen filmmaker workshops, painting, storytelling, and so many more.... We found a great need and currently have six grade schools waiting for our classes. We found that there are even more schools wanting classes for the coming school year plus many requests for adult classes.
In addition, FringeAcademy provides more ways for Fringe to empower artists with opportunities to teach classes, workshops and bootcamps. These classes and workshops further engage our audiences, encourage creativity and self expression and help create stronger communities that support a broad spectrum of arts and cultural creatives.
Our 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. Learn more.
Want to join the fun? It’s easy! Shifts are usually three hours and for each hour donated,
you'll receive two Fringe Bucks – good toward show tickets, merch and special offers during the festival.
