Fringe Fest 2013 

The First Niagara Rochester Fringe Festival will expand for its second run in Rochester. The dates for the 2013 festival are September 19 to September 28, expanding from a five-day festival to a 10-day showcase spanning two weekends. | "We more than doubled our estimated audience in our debut year," says Fringe Fest producer Erica Fee. "We were hoping for 15,000 and at least 33,000 came." | Highlights from last year's festival included the aerial troupe Bandaloop performing on the side of the 21-story HSBC Plaza, and performances by the Harlem Gospel Choir and comedian Patton Oswalt. There were more than 180 performances, a mix of local and national acts, of 120 productions in 22 venues. The performances covered visual art, theater, dance, comedy, magic shows, film, music, and family friendly fare. | This year's festival will, again, make use of approximately 20 venues in downtown Rochester. More details, including headliners and a complete schedule, will be announced at a later date. | For those looking to participate in the festival, performance applications will open up on February 11 and be accepted on a rolling basis until April 12.
