One thing we all love about Fringing in person is that the audience has a chance to meet the artists that are performing in the festival. Since we can't really do that, we've come up with the next best thing!

Introducing our Meet the Makers series!

Meet the Makers will be a series of free live Facebook interviews that we are having with the Fringe Artists. And since it's live on Facebook, you have the opportunity to ask questions. Feel free to ask them anything you want, but no show spoilers!

Each interview will be no longer than one hour and will take place at either noon or 7:30pm (don't worry if you miss it, Facebook records it and you can watch later).


The Elgin Fringe Festival is uncurated, uncensored, and 100% of ticket and art sales back to the artists! #EFFit


We also have a 100% billeting rate!


Artists, do you have questions about the application, acceptance process, performances, etc.?
