Minnesota Fringe is a 501(c)3 nonprofit, and your donations support our mission of supporting adventurous art.
From our humble beginnings, Fringe has steadfastly remained committed to its core principles:
- producing and performances opportunities for artists of a wide variety of backgrounds, abilities, and experience levels;
- providing novel ways of engaging with the performing arts; and
- committing to financial accessibility for both artists and audiences through low-cost tickets and lean producing models.
Fringe has paid local, national, and international artists more than $2.5 Million from ticket revenues over the past decade, has a $1.2 Million annual economic impact on our community, and continues to experiment with year-round programming that champions adventurous artists to adventurous audiences.
