These dates are changing due to the postponement of the 2020 Festival. The tentative new festival dates are October 1-25, 2020. Fringe will make a final determination about whether to proceed with the postponed festival on August 1, 2020, based on the recommendations of local and state health officials.
NOVEMBER 15: VENUE REGISTRATION OPEN
All venues interesting in soliciting participants can register with the Fringe starting this day. The more the merrier, we’d like a nice selection for participants when booking begins in early 2020. Note that we highly encourage DIY venues – Fringe venue created from found spaces.
FEBRUARY 1: PARTICIPANT REGISTRATION OPEN
Remember, mounting a show in the Hollywood Fringe Festival is a three step process. Registration and paying your Fringe registration fee is your final step. Time between now and February 1 can be spent creating your online project and booking your venue. We strongly suggest booking your venue as early as possible. Many venues will start booking in the coming months. Come February 1, you will be able to finalize the process by registering with the Fringe.
AUGUST 15: REGISTRATION DEADLINE
You can register with the Fringe anytime after February 1, but assuming you want to be included in the printed guide (hint: you do!), your registration needs to be complete by August 15. This means that you need to have a venue booked and your registration paid.
SEPTEMBER 1: GUIDE ADS DEADLINE
Guide Ads are an inexpensive way to promote your show to the captive Fringe audience. To send our guide to the printers in a timely manner, we must have your ads complete by September 1. You can purchase online ads at any time.
SEPTEMBER 15: TICKETS ON SALE
Fringe tickets go on sale through www.HollywoodFringe.org and the central box office phone line.
OCTOBER 1-6: PREVIEWS
Fringe Central and several venue partners will be hosting Fringe previews leading up to opening day. For those of you that understand the power of press on house sizes and general visibility, you will want to participate in this program. More information will be available on previews soon.
OCTOBER 8-25: FRINGE FESTIVAL 2020
These are the big dates. 18 days of unmatched mayhem, fun, and experience in the heart of Hollywood.
OCTOBER 25: AWARDS & CLOSING NIGHT PARTY
The community is hopping as we present the sponsored and community awards for the Fringe. We follow the ceremony with one last bash at Fringe Central.
