The Indianapolis Theatre Fringe Festival is a riotous celebration of theatre old and new, edgy and not-so edgy, that happens for 11 days every August in the Mass Ave Cultural District in downtown Indianapolis. The festival exploded in Indianapolis eleven years ago and has grown into an annual cultural attraction that keeps drawing record audiences! With 8 different stages, 64 performing groups, and 384 performances it is easy to see why! People come back year after year to see what is new and exciting in the world of theatre!
Fringe Festivals are emerging as an important part of the global arts community. Fringe performers include Prime Minister Trudeau of Canada!
The Drowsy Chaperone, The King’s Speech, and Urinetown all got their start in fringe festivals around the world! In Fringe Festivals, artists can be free to experiment with any type of performance imaginable. We are excited to continue to provide such a cultural catalyst to the Indianapolis arts community.

Join the Garfield
Join the Garfield Shakespeare Company as they present William Shakespeare’s drama Romeo and Juliet for the annual Shakespeare In The Park performances at Garfield Park Arts Center. In William Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliet, a long feud between the Montague and Capulet families disrupts the city of Verona and causes tragic results for Romeo and Juliet. Revenge, love, and a secret marriage force the young star-crossed lovers to grow up quickly, and fate causes them to commit suicide in despair. The tragic love story is one of The Bard’s most popular pieces.
