2019 Fringe Festival

CF19_logoThe Cincinnati Fringe Festival (Cincy Fringe) is a 14-day theatre and arts festival produced by Know Theatre of Cincinnati.

Each year they present over 200 live performances from more than 40 local, national, and international groups and artists over 13 consecutive days in a dozen venues around the Over-the-Rhine (OTR) neighborhood of Cincinnati. These productions are selected for our Primary Lineup, the biggest programming component of the Festival, with help from a jury of 30+ local theatre professionals and educators. While jurying is a rarity among Fringes, we love how our curation process helps us thoughtfully select a lineup that’s rich with variety and representations.

Cincy Fringe also includes visual art projects, musical guests, street performance, free public classes, nightly after parties at Know Theatre (which serves as Fringe HQ) and more! It’s a HUGE event in the Cincinnati arts community, gathering thousands of patrons to create a breathtaking community of artists and advocates.
