2014 Fringe Festival

"FringeArts experiences are entertaining, intellectually challenging, provocative, and moving"

9/5/14 - 9/21/14

Fringe Arts Festival For 18 days every September, the annual Festival creates a cityscape filled with theater, dance, music, visual art, and everything in-between. Audiences enjoy nonstop, creative cultural experiences, artists develop their artistic visions in total freedom without any curatorial barriers from bringing that work to avid audiences, and our community is enriched as art takes over our neighborhoods, animating the spaces of our city — from traditional theaters to corner bars and vacant storefronts.

Visit the Fringe Arts website for more information.

Eastern State Penitentiary was once the most famous and expensive prison in the world, but stands today in ruin, a haunting world of crumbling cellblocks and empty guard towers.
