Scranton Fringe Festival

Scranton, PA 18501


The Scranton Fringe Festival is dedicated to creating a bold and engaging platform for creative and thought provoking art with minimal risk to artist and audience. Regional as well as touring artists are welcomed to present work with no censorship placed on content or artistic expression while striving to promote Scranton as a viable and creative environment.

The Scranton Fringe Festival is held annually across several consecutive days in multiple venues throughout downtown Scranton. Theatre, music, dance, film, comedy, puppetry and every other sort of performing-arts-production you can imagine are welcomed on the fringe! The festival is kept accessible and affordable for artists (no application fees, comparably small production fees) and audiences (special free programming, affordable tickets, hopper passes, etc) alike!

Scranton Fringe was co-founded by Conor O’Brien (current Executive Director) and Elizabeth Bohan (current Managing Director). The 2018 Board of Directors also includes: Melissa Carestia, Susan Estler, John Farkas, Lorrie Loughney, Dr. Robert McKeage, Michael Muller, Alberto Paramo, and Camille Reinecke. Various members of the community serve on the Programming, Marketing and Fundraising committees that provide vital support to the organization.  Scranton Fringe Festival’s mission is deemed non-profit (via its 501c3 fiscal sponsor Fractured Atlas).
