As a solo performer, one of the best outlets for putting one's show in front of many audience members is to tour it to a variety of "fringe" festivals. Fortunately there seems to be a renaissance of festivals springing up all over the United States, many of them much less expensive to produce at than their Canadian Fringe counterparts.
Enter the United States Association of Fringe Festivals.
FringeFestivalsUS is an online directory and calendar of many Fringe Festivals around the country. Set up after a Fringe organizers’ meeting in 2008. It’s designed and maintained by the staff of the Minnesota Fringe Festival in Minneapolis-St. Paul; content is contributed by all the Fringes that participate in the producers’ meeting.
We at TSP applaud this resource. Great idea. Take a look HERE.
