SYRACUSE FRINGE FESTIVAL 2013

This website was created to promote the first Syracuse Fringe Festival giving voice to local and regional artists and acts that push against the traditional boundaries of the performing arts. The Syracuse Fringe Festival was considered the first festival of its kind in the central New York region. Its goal was to provide an atmosphere that showcases and supports the talent and innovation of local artists while simultaneously immerses audiences in new art that stimulates a co-production of culture. After a first successful festival applications were made available for 2014. Sometime after 2014 this site's domain registration expired and the site disappeared from the web. I recently discovered the doain had become available so I bought it will the goal of bring back 2013 archived content and the spirit of the orignal goals for the festival. Perhaps someone else will be inspired to continue with another fringe festival in cwentral NYS. We miss you.

HOW: Here’s how our Fringe Ticketing system works:

$3.00 will buy you a Festival access button. This will get you into our lounge and cash bar! Once you have this button you can buy as many single performance tickets you want to all the unique performances – and you’ll want to see everything we have to offer! These button proceeds go to support Syracuse Fringe operations year round so we can bring you “Art on the Edge” in every season Syracuse has to offer (fall, winter, spring… and Construction).

Fun Fact: Your Festival button will also get you certain discounts at local joints around town! You can buy these access buttons online below or at the Festival box office!

Single tickets to individual performances cost $7.00. Half of those proceeds go directly to the artists! This way they can buy drinks, invest in their own art and maybe even eat! The other half helps to cover the fees associated with producing the festival! All these tickets are only available at the festival box office during festival hours!

FRINGE SPECIAL: We are offering a limited number of “One Night Stand Passes”! This Fringe deal gets you 2 access buttons (one for you and a special lucky someone) and 4 performance tickets! ONS packages are available for purchase online ($30) and you’ll pick the shows when you show up!

So…what are you waiting for…We dared ya…Are you ready to FRINGE!

Get my Festival Access Button or One Night Stand Pass!

(once ordered, we will have your button at the festival box office!)

The first Syracuse Fringe Festival  begins today with eight performances and a reception at Community Folk Art Center. For three days, the festival will present 10 shows, each about an hour long. Performances vary from a one-woman and one-man show of personal stories to a suite of plays, modern dance, improv comedy and singing in the center's dance studio and black box theater.

The festival is the dream of three Le Moyne college graduates, Class of 2012. Jacob Ellison, Justin Sullivan and Kelsey Moriarty raised money for the festival through the crowd-financing online website, Kickstarter.

 

During the festival, a lounge has been set up with interactive exhibits, live music and cash bar for access pass holders. It will be open 4 to 10:30 p.m. today through Saturday at CFAC.
