The First Niagara Rochester Fringe Festival announced last night that it will be returning for a second year this fall, and has also expanded how long the festival will run for. The dates this year are September 19-28, expanding from the five day long festival that it was in 2012 into a ten day long showcase that now spans two weekends.
For those looking to participate in the festival, performance applications will open up on February and be accepted on a rolling basis until April 12.
