Virtual Festival

James Pack/ August 31, 2020/ Events, News/ 0 comments

With the pandemic situation changing each week, we at the Tucson Fringe Festival had planned to not plan or have any kind of festival this coming year. Perhaps we needed a break. As we saw what other festivals were doing and how they were adapting, we decided we needed some kind of event. We’ll have a virtual festival in January instead of in-person performances, but we’re doing things a little different. To make things easier for us and easier for the performers, we are paying the performers for their creative works and offering free performances. We will ask for a suggested donation so that we may continue to lighten the burden on those of us in the entertainment sector. We’re here to help the community and give artists, who may not always find a platform to express themselves, a place to call home. If it’s important to you as a performer, it’s important to us. All the details will be

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.

This is the last week to apply to perform with the Tucson Fringe Festival. Applications end this Sunday, September 1. Remember, if you apply today but haven’t fully developed your show idea, you will have four months after the drawing to figure it out. Some shows change their titles in that four-month period. Some completely change what their show is about. The purpose of the application is to get your name in the hat. So, if you’re feeling apprehensive or unsure of yourself, fill out the application anyway. You’ll help a local non-profit and you’ll have the opportunity to show Tucson your creative work. Apply Here! Our next event is the Lottery Party on Thursday, September 5. We will draw names from a hat to choose which shows will be in the 2020 Tucson Fringe Festival happening January 9-12, 2020.
