The Elgin Fringe Festival is a visual and performing arts festival, featuring magic, dance, comedy, drama, music, and the undefined all in downtown Elgin! The 8th annual festival will be held in-person and virtually in 2021, so you can fringe from anywhere!
Now headed into our 8th year, the Elgin Fringe Festival is a proud member of the United States Association of Fringe Festivals and the Canadian Association of Fringe Festivals. We are first-come, first-served; uncurated; uncensored; 100% back to the artists!
The festival kicks off Friday, September 3 with the opening of the EFF Visual Art, continues on Saturday, September 4 with our annual Family Fringe, and brings it home the next weekend with over 50 performances downtown Elgin and online.
