Fringe Festival September 7th-21st!


Fringe Festival is right around the corner! The event is scheduled to take place from September 7th until the 21st, and it is a wonderful opportunity to explore and support Philadelphia’s local art scene. The festival draws more than 40,000 people to the city and showcases works featuring dance, comedy, visual art, and spoken word curated by FringeArts. Venues in and around our neighborhood that will be hosting Fringe Festival events include The Collective Philadelphia, Portside Arts Center, Little Berlin, Taller Puertorriqueño, The Iron Factory, The Berks Warehouse, Evil Genius Beer Company, Mascher Space Collective, The MAAS Space, Firth & Wilson Transport Cycles, Philadelphia Distilling, and Punch Line Philly. In addition to the many spaces participating in the festival, the Fringe Benefit custom beer will be brewed by the local St. Benjamin Brewing Company and will be available throughout the festival beginning on September 7th.
