This celebration of theater, comedy, dance and art is the "unfiltered" companion to the Philadelphia Live Arts Festival. The 16-day Philly Fringe includes performances by 176 new and established artists at sites across Philadelphia.
Philly Fringe tickets are really cheap. Most shows cost $10-$15, and several shows, including "24 Hour Comedy Marathon," "Chick," How Old Are You?," "Killer Bass" and "Media Addicts" are just $5.
And if you plan to see a lot of shows– either at Live Arts or Fringe, you can save even more. There’s a 20 percent discount when you buy tickets to two or three shows and a 25 percent discount on four or more shows.
And for some post-show nightlife, you can head to the Festival Bar at the southwest corner of 5th and Fairmount. With media projections on the walls, creative activities by local artists and music, it may feel like another Fringe show — and, there’s no cover.
