Dates announced for Providence Fringe Festival


The Wilbury Theatre Group, in collaboration with WaterFire Providence, has announced the dates for this year’s FRINGEPVD: The Providence Fringe Festival.

The event will be held July 18-24. FRINGEPVD will be accepting artists’ submissions through April 15.

Founded in 2014, FRINGEPVD brings together more than three hundred individual theatre, music, dance, multimedia and performing artists for five nights of performances in and around WaterFire Arts Center, as well as online.

FRINGEPVD participants (productions/shows/artists) are selected on non-juried, non-censored basis. After all the applications are in, participating artists are selected randomly by lottery. Performances are then scheduled in an appropriate venue based on schedule requirements, conflicts, and technical needs. All applicants do pay an application fee and, if selected, will also pay a production fee. All proceeds from ticket sales go directly back to the artists.

“After last year’s all-virtual Fringe, we are really looking forward to getting back to in-person performances,” said Josh Short, Wilbury Theatre Group’s artistic director. “However, last year really opened our eyes to the creative freedom and wide reach of online performance so we are excited to expand on our digital Fringe performances, this year, while also returning to more traditional venues.”

Additional information, including venue locations and programming, will be announced at a later date.
