The KeyBank Rochester Fringe Festival just announced that instead of cancelling, they will be holding all its events on a virtual platform this year. The festival will run from Sept. 15 to Sept. 26 and the shows will include free and paid events.
During an interview with the Democrat & Chronicle, Fringe Producer Erica Fee said:
“We love our performers and our audience members and we will do all that it takes to keep everyone safe and healthy this year, so that we can enjoy in-person festivals in future years,” Fee said. “Among other benefits, the arts provide a platform for voices to be heard and allow communities to address difficult issues. This is part of our nonprofit’s mission, and we needed to make sure that this platform exists this year in one way or another.”
This is the 9th year of the Fringe Fest and it will include more than 175 shows, some of which include returning guests like storyteller Nate DiMeo, who’s podcast “The Memory Palace,” featured stories about Frederick Douglas and Eastman Kodak.
