Have you ever wondered how do the big time stars get to where they are now? They start off small, right in their home city or town; where they can perform and showcase their growing talent. In Philadelphia, a city made for the arts, they embrace the local artist with a month of celebration known as the Fringe Festival.
The Fringe Festival allows performers to showcase their original material to local audiences for a small fee. The genre’s of performers range from theatre, dance, and puppetry to even film. Here in Philadelphia you can catch comedy, improv, opera, theatre, dance and many more shows for a discounted price.
While Fringe Festivals occur all over the world, Philadelphia dedicated most of the month of September to the performing arts with their version of this Scottish tradition. This is a great way to fulfill an unplanned Friday night or weekend, while supporting local artist.
Check out your local Fringe Festival if you are not near or just visiting Philadelphia and celebrate the arts. The festival will be going on until September 22, 2013 here in Philadelphia.
