KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival

From its five-day debut in 2012, the KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival has become one of the fastest-growing and most-attended fringe festivals in the U.S and the largest multi-genre arts festival in New York State. In 2019, the 12-day festival (Sept. 10-21) will feature more than 575 performances -- over 150 of which are free -- in 20+ downtown venues. Renowned among the world’s 200+ fringe festivals for its large-scale, outdoor, free-to-the-public performances, Rochester’s Fringe was also the first fringe festival in North America to feature a Spiegeltent -- now an annual attraction. From comedy to theatre, from music to dance, from visual art and film to spoken word, and from children’s entertainment to multi-disciplinary collaborations, the festival’s diversity also extends to venues that span the gamut from parked cars to grand theatres.
