Scranton Fringe Festival
Leisure, Shopping & Fun: Fairs & Festivals
A multi-day celebration of the arts
Since it began in 2015, this festival honoring Scranton’s art scene has become one of the city’s most popular events. Scranton Fringe Festival is a week-long, downtown celebration honoring performing arts of every genre imaginable.
From live stage productions and comedy acts to story slams and street performers, you’ll find it all at the Fringe Festival.
At this week-long festival, events take center stage at a dozen venues across downtown. You can catch comedy shows and theatrical performances at the Scranton Cultural Center, AFA Gallery and the Lackawanna County Children’s Library to name a few venues. There are even workshops for budding artists or those looking to learn a new craft.
During the Fringe Festival, Scranton welcomes an incredible network of local and nationally renowned artists and performers. Local businesses and restaurants also play a major role in the success of the festival. You can purchase a special Fringe Festival button for discounts at participating shops and restaurants and on performance tickets.
