Our Goals

At the Denver Fringe Festival, we believe that the power of performance art can’t be overstated, that it's a key component to inspiring thought-provoking conversations and building thriving communities.

Denver’s thriving arts scene is overflowing with talent and innovation. Our goal is to provide more outlets every year so artists to have a way to test their work, try new things, push the boundaries. And we want to channel that work into performance venues at accessible prices so that live performance is available to as many people as possible.  

What does the future of the Denver Fringe look like? Picture a weeks-long festival with live performance taking place at dozens of creative spaces, with theater, comedy shows, dance, cabaret, and circus happening at any hour of the day or night — an annual performing arts festival so inclusive and expansive that we can’t imagine summer in Denver without it!
