Beyond the Fringe

 In Culture, Feature


St. Lou Fringe Festival returns for its second year after a wildly successful debut in 2012. This year’s festival, June 20-24, will feature 30 local and national artists producing more than 100 shows over five days at Grand Center. Festival goers can experience theater, musicals, dance, music, burlesque, street magic and more.

Founder Emily Piro says the festival will recreate last year’s successful formula, but in an even bigger and better way. Visitors can expect more outdoor events and a streamlined outdoor experience; when an indoor performance is happening, something will be happening outside on the street simultaneously. A new venue, ANNONYArts at Satori, has been added as well, resulting in more convenient show times and every act getting a prime spot. Plus, there are two additional days dedicated to family-friendly entertainment. Even better, this year’s most successful Fringe shows will get the opportunity to perform the following weekend on the main stage of St. Louis Pride Fest. For tickets and more info, visit
