Frequently Asked Questions

What are Fringe Buttons?

Every audience member of the Tucson Fringe Festival must purchase and wear a button in order to access our events. Think of it as a cover charge or access pass to the 50+ shows, events, and galleries throughout our three-day festival. It’s a one-time purchase of $3.00. Buttons can be purchased online or at each of our venues.

Why do I need a button?

The Tucson Fringe Festival is committed to rewarding our artists and venue partners for their commitment to the Tucson Arts Community. Revenue generated by ticket sales go directly toward paying our artists and venue partners.

The revenue from button purchases support the operating costs of the Tucson Fringe Festival. They allow us to keep our artists and venues supported while keeping you, our fantastic Fringe audiences, engaged.

When you purchase a button, you also get discounts and deals from local businesses through our Button Discounts program. Each event during the festival will offer an insert to audiences with a list of local downtown Tucson businesses offering discounts during the festival weekend.

I bought my tickets early online. How do I get my tickets and passes?

We are currently changing our ticketing software which will change how online tickets are delivered and used. We will have more information once we begin offering tickets online in November 2021.

How Can I Help Tucson Fringe?

The easiest way to support us is by following us on social media. Like posts, leave comments, share photos and stories of your Fringe experiences. Also, tell your friends about us and share things on social media. Word of Mouth has always been the best marketing tool. Tell others who we are to help us grow.

The next best way to support Tucson Fringe is by attending our events. See a show or come to one of our mixers and fundraising events. Show your support by attending events and sharing photos while you’re there.

We are a 501(c)3 Nonprofit and we do accept donations and sponsorships. You can donate any amount or you can check out our Sponsorship Page to see what perks you can get as a festival sponsor.

If you’re unable to support us financially, we always need help during the festival and throughout the year. We offer internships for high school and college students. We also are always looking for volunteers and new members for our Board of Directors. Learn more about volunteering and requirements for members of the Board of Directors on the Volunteer Page.
