FRINGEPVD features more than 300 performing artists from across the country sharing their work in theatre, dance, visual arts, and everything in between.
The 2021 Providence Fringe Festival features performances presented online and outdoors at venues throughout Providence's Valley neighborhood, including the WaterFire Arts Center, the Steel Yard, Farm Fresh RI, Nicholson File Art Studios, and more.
ounded in 2014 by The Wilbury Theatre Group, The Providence Fringe Festival®, a.k.a FRINGEPVD, is produced to nurture emerging and established performing artists by presenting fun, fearless and affordable theater to the community. FRINGEPVD creates ties between artists, audiences, businesses and local organizations, amplifying the vibrancy of Providence as a renowned cultural destination and an unparalleled place to live, work, and visit.
FRINGEPVD is open to anyone who wants to produce their own show. For some artists, it's a once-a-year opportunity to create a show; for others it can be an opportunity to try something new.
Audiences are encouraged to take full advantage of the variety of performing & visual artists participating in the fringe. Attend performances that you wouldn't normally attend, see things you wouldn’t otherwise see.
