how to fringe
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.
then, See a Show
Now you can attend a ticketed performance!
Tell your friends about it.
Repeat this process. Often.
no button = no entry
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!
remember, Lines Are Love
They’re a linear pre-show party. (Even though this year it’s a socially-distanced party.)
Talk about the must-sees.
Let an artist chat you up.
lastly, You Should Also…
Checkout the lawn.
Chill in the beer tent.
Get a bite to eat.
Enjoy free performances on the outdoor stage.
Strike up a conversation and make new friends.
