Basics every Fringer needs to know

first, Get a Button

Buttons are a must-have to see a ticketed show.  They support the Fringe, and help make the festival happen.  

Plus they make you look really cool. 

Buttons are available for purchase or pick up at any festival box office, info table, or BYOV location, and they can be used to see this year’s shows over and over again.

next, Get a Ticket

To see a show you need a show ticket.  100% of ticket sales go directly to the artist(s) performing the show.  

Head to any onsite box office or use this website to purchase.

Choose a show by asking around, talking to an artist, or just picking one at random.

Now you can attend a ticketed performance!

Tell your friends about it.

Repeat this process.  Often.

also, Don’t Be Late!

All shows begin on time.

Once the pre-show announcements have concluded and the theatre doors are closed, you will not be admitted.

There are no refunds if you’re late – but feel good that you’ve supported an artist!
