2020 Festival Canceled
With heavy hearts, we want to notify our audience that the 2020 Pittsburgh Fringe, scheduled for April 2-5, has been canceled. All tickets, buttons, and passes will be refunded immediately. We are investigating alternatives, so stay tuned.
Please stay safe, stay healthy, and take care of yourself during this difficult time.
2020 Registrations are open, and venues are now allowed to book shows.
Step 2: Finding a Venue: Some venues have signed up, some are still signing up, but everyone is now allowed to start negotiating with venues. If you have applied we are passing your show information to venues we think will fit the logistics of your show. Some venues will still need more time, and we are always looking for more venues. We are also assembling a list of venues that have already signed up, and will have that up soon. (We think we'll have a much larger list in a few days, as we are waiting on a few venues.)
Step 3: Registration. Because we know this is a new system for some venues, and relatively new for others, we will allow shows to register their shows before the January 15th early deadline discount even if they don't have a venue yet. To make this work, we are offering refunds for just the registration fee up to January 20th, for those unable to find a venue - assuming you put in a good effort to find a venue.
If you want to register - the application link is here (Make sure you applied before completing registration!):
2020 Applications are open!
