Kids Fringe is a special part of the Orlando Fringe Festival just for kids and families. Kids Fringe offers performances by Fringe artists and local arts organizations, workshops and hands-on-art activities. Kids Fringe is free to all participants and runs 10am–2pm both weekends of the festival on May 19, 20, 26, and 27!
Kids Fringers can watch kid-friendly theater, music, magic and dance performances on Fringezilla’s Main Stage, take creative movement and drum classes, stroll with puppets and crazy characters, play dress-up with theatrical costumes, and much more! All this fun is free to visitors, thanks to The City of Orlando Mayor’s Matching Grant.
Kids Fringe will present special performances by Fringe artists with performers coming from as far away as Japan and Canada. Some of our past performances included IBEX Puppetry, Voci Dance, Orlando Ballet, Mad Science, 3rd Wheel Educational Drumming, Crealde School of Art, and Boardwalk Kids as well as musicians The Outertoons, Mr. Harley, and Davey Rocker & the Barnyard Jam. Special activities include bug races, bike decorating, duct tape art, waltzing lessons with Phantasmagoria and special appearances by Fringezilla the Orlando Fringe mascot.
