Change is always good – right? Well, we have some changes and additions for you Fringers this years; nothing drastic, just some new ways for you to enjoy your time at the festival.
That’s right, this year you might be able to purchase tickets for your next without needing to finish that beer or wine first. We will have a remote box office on the lawn, near the Fringe Merchandise/Info booth. (This will be weather, crowd, and staffing permitting.)
You can now purchase a pack of 10 tickets and use it for any ticketed show during the Festival.
Here’s how it works:
Cost: $99 (+ $2 service fee). Includes 10 tickets to any show and a button. Only 200 are available. The pass is a punch card and is pretty snazzy, if we don’t say so ourselves!
Where: Online HERE or in person at the Box Office at the Orlando Shakespeare Theatre. The Box Office opens on May 14th at 5 pm.
How to redeem:
If you purchase it online, you will receive an email with a scanable code. Print that, bring that to the Box Office at THE ORLANDO SHAKESPEARE THEATRE ONLY any time during operating hours after May 14, 5 pm. You will receive the physical pass and your button and can begin redeeming punches for tickets.
If you purchase it in person, you will be given your pass and button at the time of purchase.
It’s that simple! And 100% of all ticket sales are still going to the artists!
We all know the Green Lawn is THE place to be for socializing between shows. With the FREE Outdoor Stage featuring some fantastic talent as well as the beer tent, the lawn becomes a hub of excitement! And this year the lawn is growing and we’re offering a new food option: FOODIES OF THE FRINGE. Each weekend, the lawn will feature a local eatery offering tapas and light bites – perfect to grab & go between shows. We also have a food vendor providing sit-down, table service this year; for those times when you don’t have to rush to the next show. Here’s the line-up:

Everyone knows that finding parking during Fringe can be challenging at times. Our good friends at Ivanhoe Village have the perfect solution: VALET your bicycle, and they’ll watch it for you free of charge. Fringeland is easy to get around on two wheels. So why not park a few blocks away to ensure a good spot and then pedal yourself about and never worry about parking again! It’s also the perfect way to show off your swanky new ride.
The Ivanhoe Village Bike Valet is open throughout the Festival: Weekdays from 6 PM – Midnight, & Weekends 11 AM – Midnight. They will be located by the northwest entrance of the Green Lawn (close to the Orlando Shakespeare Theatre)
