Three Ways to Support Chicago Fringe Festival
In 2013, Chicago Fringe Festival made Jefferson Park their home, attracting visitors from across the region and providing a cultural resource to the community. Every year, Chicago Fringe offers an engaging and unparalleled theatrical experience for audiences of all ages.
A major contributing factor to Chicago Fringe’s success over the years has been from volunteers opening their homes to performers, acting as stage managers, offering trucks to haul materials, and providing food for Fringe staff and volunteers. If you’re interested in helping continue making Fringe a success by volunteering, please email organizers.
If you don’t have enough spare time to volunteer, you can still show your support by donating. With Fischman’s (Fringe Central) closing earlier in July and a loss of their Presenting Sponsor, Chicago Fringe Festival has been hard at work to not only organize the festival but to make it the best to date. Regardless of the amount, any tax-deductible donation will have an impact; and the incentive couldn’t be better. Mega-donors of $1,500 or more will receive two tickets in the Dress Circle Loge to see Hamilton in Chicago on Thursday, November 10. Learn more online.
The final way to support Fringe is to attend the festival. This year, the festival runs August 31 through September 11 and will feature 50 groups in about 200 performances. These shows are unpredictable, unusual, and non-juried. They also offer a selection of family-friendly programming. Fringe is committed to their performers by returning 100% of the ticket sales back to the artists. Tickets are available for purchase online.
