Fringe Fort Myers is the newest Fringe theatre festival in the United States and maintains long-standing Fringe traditions of being 100% uncensored, 100% unjuried and 100% inclusive. Even better, 100% of ticket sales go directly to the artists. Which means you’re 100% guaranteed to have the single greatest experience of your life.

Fringe Fort Myers kicks off with the fun and frenetic Teaser Show, each performance group gets 2 minutes to sell you on their show, how they do it is up to them! Over the next 4 days we will play host to 48 performances on 4 different stages at the Alliance for the Arts and Broadway Palm Dinner Theatre. After the final curtain, Fringe Fort Myers will host our first Fringe awards ceremony celebrating the artists that make Fringe an incredible experience. Florida Rep Education will also offer Kids Fringe, which will operate a family-friendly performance within Fringe Fort Myers.
