We’re a multi-day performing arts festival in the heart of Sugar House, where artists from Salt Lake City and beyond come together to tell their stories and audiences can see hundreds of shows at a low price.
The Great Salt Lake Fringe Festival has one goal in mind: to provide an accessible opportunity for performing artists and audiences to connect and collaborate with one another. The definition of “performance” is growing and changing and we want to be a part of that change. The Fringe is a place for artists to showcase their art in less than traditional ways, but it’s also a way to help the community.
The Fringe inspires creativity and collaboration, involving many student groups and non-traditional performance pieces with all of the proceeds from ticket sales going directly to the artist – about $16,000 went to artists last year alone.
As an audience member, you can see thirty shows a weekend at an affordable price -and the more you see, the cheaper it gets. Last year, we had 250 shows in fourteen days; you can see more performances in two weeks than many people can in a year.
