City Paper Best of PGH Pittsburgh Virtual Fringe Festival was SECOND PLACE for Best Virual Event!!!!
With our quick turn to virtual after a last minute cancelation of our early April festival, and planning an entirely new festival in less than a month, we managed to get SECOND place for the Best Virtual Event in Pittsburgh!!! This is an amazing award to get after having to pull it together so fast!
We want to thank all the performers, who learned how to go virtual and even created new shows in less than one month. Our performers and staff really put in a lot of effort to make this happen, and we want to Thank You all so much!!!!
There were almost 600,000 people who voted, so this is really amazing!!! Thank you!!!
While the main packed May 1st weekend part of the festival is over - we are doing a sprinkling of shows all May!
We also have recordings of several of our shows from the first big weekend available all month. To see which shows are still availble check out our show listings titled "Shows Running All Month." We will also be adding more shows througout the month starting May 11th.
We have an amazing collection of shows from across the U.S.! And all sorts of genres! Comedy, Theatre, Music, Dance, Puppets, Performance Art, Visual Art, Circus and more! Everyone should be able to find something they like!
We have 19 performances three days (mostly 2) online! And we're working on a sprinking of shows throughout the rest of May.
