Orlando Fringe Announces 2021 Award Winners and Details on DigiFringe Starting June 4 .. @OrlandoFringe #OrlandoFringe #DigiFringe #OrlandoArts

Orlando Fringe

Orlando Fringe wrapped up its 2021 festival on Monday, and announced this year’s award winners during the closing festival. It also released details on the new DigiFringe virtual companion festival, which runs June 4-18, 2021.

DigiFringe is an online extension of this year’s Orlando Fringe, allowing patrons to enjoy video versions of the shows. This is great for those shows you may have missed (or just want to see again).

Tickets to each show are $10, but you can save by purchasing them in packages of 10 ($90) or 25 ($200). Purchase a show and watch whenever you want, it’s that easy.

A small fee is added to each show as a digital “button” price, just as if you were at the Festival, but 100% Of Ticket Sales always goes back to the artist. Once you hit ten shows, the button fee will no longer appear.
