Asheville Fringe accepts applications, hosts Summer Fringe Nights Aug. 28

Press release from Asheville Fringe Arts Festival:

The Asheville Fringe Arts Festival is gearing up for its edgiest festival yet. We are seeking to feature artists who are creating bold work in the spirit of experimentation and risk taking. Now in its 18th year, Asheville Fringe will be bringing even more shows, venues and Random Acts of Fringe to its exciting 2020 schedule.

To highlight the Call for Artists we are hosting our third and final Fringe Summer Night at the Crow & Quill on Wednesday, August 28, from 8 to 10 pm. 106 N Lexington Ave., Downtown Asheville

This free event will feature 3 Fringe artist performances by Amanda Levesque, Jenni Cockrell, and Alli Marshall, who will present performance art, butoh dance, and spoken word. Fringe Festival organizers will be also encouraging proposal submissions and answering questions about the process.

To apply for the 2020 Asheville Fringe Arts Festival, go to our all new website: Artists should read our Performer Guidelines, then submit an online application and tech form by Monday, September 23 at 9:23pm.

As always, we seek to create a festival line-up that includes dance, puppetry, storytelling, performance art, theatre, and things that blur the lines. Artists are encouraged to bring their most daring work, and will find full support from the Asheville Fringe Family.
