According to the official Orlando Fringe Facebook page, this year’s event broke both attendance and artist payment records.
The 25th annual festival, that ran from May 18-30 at Orlando’s Loch Haven Park, distributed 52,279 tickets [up from 42,265 in 2015]; provided $424,446 in artist payments [up from $371,153]; drew 9,500 to Kids Fringe; and sold 32 pieces of Visual Fringe.
“We couldn’t have done this without our friends and supporters, the Board of Directors, sponsors and our fulltime staff, our amazing contingent of volunteers, and, of course, the general public — many of whom enjoyed Fringe for the first time,” Executive Director George Wallace said. “A lot of work was put into this celebratory festival; now, we can rest. But not for long, as we will soon begin preparing for next year’s Fringe.”
Next year’s festival will be its 26th year, and Fringe organizers have already begun planning. Festival dates have yet to be officially announced, but as soon as they are announced, we will let you know.
