How to Fringe

Ever eaten tapas? So many choices, so many things you’ve never experienced before—so much potential!

The Denver Fringe is like that. A variety of choices, each more interesting than the next. Unleash your curiosity and dive in! You'll discover something you love more than you ever expected, something else that takes you totally by surprise. Either way, you'll undoubtedly want to try more. It’s addictive! The Denver Fringe Festival is always bold, innovative, unconventional, and fresh! Click here for complete schedule.


First, buy a Denver Fringe button. It’s a one-of-a-kind, soon-to-be-collectible souvenir designed by local artist Johnny Draco. It gives you access to “Fringe with Benefits” specials at an array of places to eat and drink before and after your shows. You can pick up your button and a program at our Denver Fringe hub or at the venues.

Your purchase of a button helps us support more artists and is a great collectible from the 2021 festival.


The best way to “fringe” is to binge! Get tickets to a few shows and make an evening of it. Our venues are all within a square mile and in between you can enjoy your “Fringe With Benefits” specials at all the great places to eat and drink in the area. You can also check out RiNo’s prolific street art and visit some local art galleries. The more art, the better!  Click here for complete schedule.

Please take careful note of the start time and arrive early to the venue. All seating is general admission; audiences will wait in a queue at the venue before entry to the show. By purchasing an ticket you are agreeing to follow the COVID safety guidelines of the State of Colorado and the venue where your show takes place including mask wearing when required and staying home if you’re not feeling well.
