From those who create to those who appreciate,
thank you for making our third chapter unforgettable.

For your role in a remarkable story told so brilliantly, heartfelt thanks from your appreciative audience - the First Niagara Rochester Fringe Festival. Ten days of creativity, innovation, energy, generosity and inspiring dedication have attracted over 60,000 from near and far. Featuring more than 380 shows and events at 25+ venues all over downtown Rochester's East End (one-third of which are absolutely free), the Fringe has indeed found a place in hearts both young and young-at-heart. From headliners - the spectacular Circus Orange, the sharp comedy of "Saturday Night Live's" Jay Pharoah, the world premiere of Mardi Gras! Cirque du Fringe in the Magic Crystal Spiegeltent, the return of perennial favorite Silent Disco, the epic living gallery performance of Spoon River Rochester, the much anticipated Gospel Sunday and the wildly popular gathering place that is the Spiegelgarden - to the unexpected surprises in tiny venues, we have celebrated the arts and phenomenal creativity as only Rochester can.
