Press Ticket Requests

Accredited media receiving press passes may request tickets. Photographers and photojournalists do not need tickets in addition to a press pass in order to discreetly document performances (see Media Guidelines here). However, as in past years, press passes alone will not be sufficient to gain show entry for journalists wishing to be seated for a performance.

To obtain a ticket — for reviewing purposes only — go to the Press Ticket Request Form. Please allow up to 48 hours to process. A ticket request does not guarantee approval. In case of an emergency, please email Cheri at or go directly to the Fringe Box Office, located adjacent to the Spiegeltent at One Fringe Place, at the corner of Main & Gibbs St.

A note on our name

Yes, we have one. Please use “KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival” in the first instance and “Fringe,” “the Fringe” or even “Rochester Fringe” thereafter. Because fringe festivals all over the world call themselves “Fringes,” we ask that you NOT refer to us as “the Fringe Fest,” “the Fringe Festival,” or even “RFF.” Good? Thanks.
