Deadline April 5, 2023

The Rochester Fringe Festival is a 12-day, all-out, no-holds-barred, multi-arts festival. The Fringe features international, national and local artists. It showcases theatre, comedy, dance, music, visual arts, children’s entertainment, physical theatre, musical theatre, opera, poetry, literature and experiences that have yet to even be imagined. This year’s dates are September 12-23, 2023.

We follow the “Edinburgh Model”. Like the Edinburgh Fringe, all shows are booked by the venues themselves. Following your application, you will hear from your selected venues directly. The Fringe does NOT book shows into venues itself. Your negotiations will be with the venues themselves.

Submissions for online shows, whether on-demand or live streamed, will also open from February 22nd at 9am Eastern through March 29 at 12pm Eastern. Starting February 22nd, create an account (or log into a prior account) at, fill out the application, submit your show, and then cross your fingers!
