Great Salt Lake Fringe Festival 2018

August 2 - August 12

$5 - $10

Join us for our fourth annual festival of theatre, dance, music, performance art, comedy, drama, and more, at our new home: The Gateway!

We’re a multi-day performing arts festival in the heart of Downtown SLC, where artists from Utah and beyond come together to tell their stories. Our shows encompass theatre, dance, music, magic, comedy, and more. The Great Salt Lake Fringe is uncensored, unadjudicated, and unrestricted. Artists hold the power, and have the opportunity to create art that matters to them.

The Great Salt Lake Fringe Festival is a 501(c)3 nonprofit organization founded in 2015 by Westminster College students and staff. In 2015, the four-day festival hosted 27 theatre companies that put on 110 performances, earned over $16,000 in ticket sales and hosted nearly 2,500 attendees.

In the last two years, the 14-day festival doubled in size. Last year, 50 companies put on 250 performances in eight venues.

The Fringe is focused on the performing arts and 100 percent of the ticket sales go directly to the artists. Shows involve theatre, dance, music, aerial arts, magic, and over 95 percent of shows are world premieres or original works. Shows must be less than one hour long.

The Great Salt Lake Fringe Festival has one goal in mind: to provide an accessible opportunity for performing artists and audiences to connect and collaborate with one another. The definition of “performance” is growing and changing and we want to be a part of that change.
