Whether enjoying sunny pre-show picnics or braving the elements on a frigid rainy night, over 3,600 fabulous Fringers showed up to be moved by live theater, music, and dance - a much needed respite during these trying times.
We are hard at work behind the scenes planning for more great theatrics in 2021! As always, we remain committed to creating an open and equitable platform for independent artists.

INDYFRINGE JOINS IN SOLIDARITY
IndyFringe joins in solidarity with African Americans and all people of goodwill decrying oppression and calling for justice in the cases of George Floyd, Ahmaud Aubrey, Eric Garner, Michael Brown and countless others impacted by police violence and institutional murders. Black Lives Matter.
That’s why we pledge and ask our IndyFringe supporters to
· Use #blacklivesmatter social media and online platforms to underscore your support of justice for the African American community and cultural institutions now and moving forward;
· Advocate to funders and elected officials your stand for equitable funding for institutions of color;
· Create a radically welcoming space for Black artists and works and for all Black audiences
· Visit black communities and institutions, invest in small businesses and attend African American events; and,
· Be the person who doesn’t look like the majority of people in a space and experience the power of that perspective.
We are committed to facilitating the articulation and expression of Black lives, values, culture, issues and dynamics through the performing arts. We will continue cultivating and offering a platform for Black playwrights, actors, directors, producers and those involved at all levels of stage crafts and theatre.
