What is a BYOV or Bring Your Own Venue?

A BYOV is a performance venue operated by a partner venue as an extended branch of the Orlando Fringe. Multiple shows perform in the space throughout the festival, and the location is off-site from the main festival grounds. Tickets are still available for these shows on our website, though there is some separation, including a separate Teaser Show, and events that may not include BYOV artists. 

BYOV shows may not exceed 75 minutes in run time.
