The festival took place May 19-30.
After the closing of the 13th Fringe, Beth Marshall became the Producing Artistic Director.
The entire festival made the move to Loch Haven Park.
To save costs, the festival reduced to 6 venues from 12 the year before.
For the first time, Fringe had a centralized box office. You could no longer buy tickets at the individual venues.
Memorial Day 2005 became the first “Patrons’ Pick” day.
Memorable shows of the year: Theme Park Diva and The Miss Sammy Show, Episode 1: A Day in the Life of Miss Sammy.
The 2005 festival ended without debt and the future was looking bright.
