San Diego Fringe Festival July 1 – 7, 2013

The city of San Diego’s performing arts scene will be forever changed with the inclusion of the First Annual San Diego Fringe Festival – to be held July 1 – 7, 2013.   Breathing new life and inspiration into the performing arts community, producer Kevin Charles Patterson (director of the non-profit arts organization), has led the efforts to bring local, national, and international artists together for a week of performances including; theatre, dance, music, puppetry, cabaret, cirque, comedy, multi-media presentations and more!

san-diego-fringe-festivalOver 50 artists from San Diego, and around the globe will present performances at  10th Avenue Theatre and Arts Centre,  Space 4 Art,  Seaport Village and the  NewSchool of Architecture + Design, along with other less traditional venues around town.

Modeled after the original  Edinburgh Fringe Festival – the largest arts festival in the world, San Diego Fringe Festival promises to be the most engaging, electric and exciting arts festival in Southern California. And how appropriate for the newest Fringe Festival to land in San Diego, Edinburgh’s sister city!

Collaborating with local arts organizations contACT ARTS,  Circle Circle dot dot,  Actors Alliance of San Diego, the East Village Association and businesses throughout town, the organizers of the Fringe Festival have created an event that  is  designed  to  encourage  and  assist venues and artists to be as successful as possible by providing scheduling, programming, funding, ticketing services, marketing, publicity and facilitating the  matching of artists with venues.

With more than half of the performing artists coming from San Diego, coupled with the energy of international performers, the first week of July will never be the same in San Diego again!
