Applications for the 2020 Tucson Fringe Festival closed last night. We finished with a total of 61 applicants from all over the country and we even had a couple from outside the country. We had many from Tucson, home of the festival, as well. The next step in the process is for us to choose the performers for the festival. Of the 61 applicants, only 20 will be chosen to perform in the festival. What is our process for deciding who is chosen for the festival? We draw names from a hat! To keep things fair and unbiased.
Our Lottery Party is this Thursday, September 5 at 7pm. We will be at Tap & Bottle, 403 N 6thAve, Tucson, AZ, 85705. Anyone who applied for the festival is welcome to attend. Anyone attending the Fringe event will receive $1 off draft beer. Be sure to tip and thank your bartender during the event. If you are not in Tucson, we will have a live Facebook video of the drawing so anyone from anywhere can participate in the drawing. Meet the faces behind organizing the festival and see if your show is chosen to participate in the 2020 Tucson Fringe Festival on the second weekend of January 2020.
Once we have our list of performers and shows, we will begin preparations and planning for the festival. There are contracts to be signed, venues to confirm, advertising and insurance to be purchased, etc… It’s a lot of hard work for a wonderful result. We will have a call for volunteers in the next couple months. Keep checking back for more details. We will release our schedule and venue information by the beginning of November. The schedule information is subject to change between November and the festival. Always visit our website for the latest and most up-to-date information about the festival.
Happy Labor Day! Stay Fringe-y!
