Previously, the Mini-Fest took place in rented theaters at Lowndes Shakespeare Center in Loch Haven Park, but this year, Orlando Fringe is presenting the festival in their own space, which benefits the event.

The venue also will provide satellite theaters during the main Fringe festival this May, which will once again take place at Loch Haven Park.

One of the benefits of this new space for patrons is the access to parking in the area.

Parking can be secured at the 55 West Garage on event nights for $11 ParkMobile Downtown Orlando Prepaid Event Parking (this garage fills up fast, so secure parking in advance).

Other nearby garages are the Central Boulevard Garage at 53 West Central Blvd, and Jefferson Street Garage at 62 West Jefferson Street.

Patrons can also utilize the valet in front of Fringe ArtSpace on Church Street Wednesday through Saturday 6pm-12am.

In the future, the ArtSpace will be used to mentor up-and-coming Central Florida arts groups, and provide emerging artists a place to learn and experiment.

The venue offers two performance halls: a 166-seat proscenium theater and a space that seats 40-60 depending on how it’s used, as well as the outside plaza space that can also be used.

Congrats to Orlando Fringe on its new digs, and definitely check out both the Winter Mini-Fest and the open house. They’re two of my picks for things to do in Orlando in January.
