Apply for the 2021 Asheville Fringe Festival by Sept. 23

Wed, Sep 2
Asheville Fringe Festival


2020 has taught us that everything is subject to change. In the interest of protecting our artists, audience, staff and volunteers, we will be having very few, if any, in-person shows during this year’s festival. If there are opportunities for safe in-person performances, preference will be given to local artists. We cannot encourage any interstate travel during the pandemic. The good news is: because much of the festival will take place online, anyone, anywhere, who wishes to apply now has a chance to perform without traveling. Although this format may seem limiting, the audience is limitless. We are open to all sorts of new experiments in live or virtual performance, whether it be an unconventional show format, online platform or unusual venue. Email us if you’ve got any questions.
