About Fringe

There is one big thing that makes Fringe different from any other event:

We believe everyone has the capability to make great art, and, more importantly, everyone should have the opportunity to see great art. From stage veterans to newcomers, the Houston Fringe is a forum for anyone with a story to tell and makes producing a show as easy as possible.

We keep ticket prices low, because we believe art is for all.


Fringe essentials

Show times

Shows are 45 to 60 minutes long with 30 minutes in between to change venues or have a brew. All Fringe shows start — and end — on time.

What to wear

Shorts and a t-shirt. Really. Allow us to suggest that you wear your Houston Fringe Festival t-shirt, available for purchase at all 3 venues 😉


Don’t want the Fringe experience to stop after the show’s over?
