veja doolittle fringe festFrom Tuesday, July 26th through Saturday, July 30th, you’ll have a chance to experience a variety of performing and visual artists participating in FRINGEPVD, the Providence Fringe Festival. Artists are selected by lottery–and 100% of ticket sales go directly to the performers!

Founded in 2014 by The Wilbury Theatre Group, the festival offers affordable tickets for outside-the-box performances that run from 40-60 minutes. Some are free, while other tickets are $5 or $10 and can be purchased at the door. Audiences are encouraged to keep an open mind, have fun, and check out multiple shows each night.

Downtown venues include AS220 Black Box Theater, Aurora, Big Nazo Satellite Space, The Dean Hotel, Mathewson Street Black Box Theater, and the RISD Museum. Preview the schedule online, and download it as a PDF.
