F-Word Fringeathon Fundraising Campaign

June 16, 2018 - noon to midnight


COST: This is a Fundraiser

We're raising money through Fringeathon-an epic outdoor 12-hour dance party raising funds for Philly artists on June 16th at the Piazza.

Is Feminism a dirty word? Join 'The F Word' Team as we get ready for the Philly Fringe Festival 2018. We want to know what Feminism means to YOU!

What is FringeArts?

FringeArts is Philadelphia’s home for contemporary performance. It presents progressive, world-class art that expands the imagination and boldly defies expectation.  Our programming exposes audiences to genre-defying dance, theater, and music performances by accomplished and emerging innovators who push the boundaries of art-making and redefine the artistic landscape.

Each September, the organization presents the annual Fringe Festival, a 17-day celebration that fills the city’s neighborhoods with more than 1,000 curated and independently produced performances.  Year-round, FringeArts presents an equally compelling line up of performances at its historic home on the Delaware River Waterfront - a renovated fire department pumping station that also houses La Peg Restaurant & Bar and Haas Biergarten.

As a catalyst for cultural and community development, and a destination that brings artists and audiences together, FringeArts is central to the city’s vibrant arts community and the enrichment of the lives of those who live, work, and play there.

How does it work?

Easy!  You can either buy a ticket (children under 12 are free), or start a fundraising team.  If you start a fundraising team, then use your fundraising page to request small donations from your friends and family via email or social media.  On June 16th, come dance your "art" out with your fellow FringeArts supporters.  Dance for 12 hours, or dance for 2 hours.  There are no limits on how much or how little you dance, as long as you’re having fun.

What if I don’t like to dance?

No problem!  There’s still plenty to do at FringeA-Thon.  There will be games, prizes, food, and lots of spectacular performances to watch.  And you never know, you might find your toe tapping after all.

Where does the money go?

FringeA-Thon facilitates grassroots support for FringeArts, as well as artists who are dancing to support their own work.  All money raised at FringeA-Thon goes directly to support art-making, from building sets to paying the artists that designed them.
