The Know Theatre of Cincinnati and the Cincinnati Fringe Festival are pleased to announce that the application period for the Twentieth Annual Cincinnati Fringe Festival is now open and will run until December 12. The Cincinnati Fringe Festival will run June 2-17, 2023.

What is the Cincinnati Fringe Festival?
A 14-day celebration of theatre, art, music, film, dance, and everything between — it’s Cincinnati’s Summer Theatre Party! Now in its 20th year, Cincy Fringe (as it’s succinctly known) presents over 200 performances of 40+ theatre productions each May and June, plus art galleries, screenings, concerts, workshops, classes, and nightly after hours events.

To facilitate greater equity amongst our applicant pool, this year we are offering a sliding-scale application fee. Applicants are invited to pay what they are able, with a suggested fee for each programming category; some categories are free to apply.

Further details on materials required to apply can be found in the Application FAQ on the Cincy Fringe website. 

The application form will be available at our website,

Know Theatre is Cincinnati’s Theatrical Playground. The Know showcases unexpected voices, new works, and plays that embrace the inherent theatricality of the live experience. Know Theatre seeks to be a place where artists and audiences feel welcome to take artistic risks, creating work that is cutting edge and accessible.

Know Theatre’s work is made possible, in part, by the generosity of community contributions to the ArtsWave Campaign.

The Ohio Arts Council helps fund Know Theatre with state tax dollars to encourage economic growth, educational excellence, and cultural enrichment for all Ohioans.

Know Theatre is also supported by The Carol Ann & Ralph V. Haile, Jr./U.S. Bank Foundation, helping to change our communities for the better through collaboration and innovation, and the Greater Cincinnati Foundation, which provides a simple, powerful, and highly personal approach to giving.
