Showcase select costumes from your production at Fringe Runway, the Hollywood Fringe fashion show on Tuesday, June 12 at 8:30 pm. The night will begin with a Fringe Cabaret pre-Runway show. Grab a drink at Bryan’s Bar starting at 7:00 pm and get ready to strut your stuff!

Any Hollywood Fringe Production may enter by filling out the Runway Submission form. The deadline to enter Fringe Runway is Thursday, June 7 before midnight (a.k.a. 11:59 pm). 30 productions will be chosen by completely random lottery to participate in the event. While we wish we could feature all applicants, we must cap the participation to two costumes per show.

If selected, you will have 20 seconds to walk the catwalk! Your song will be played from a Spotify playlist, so please submit something that you want to walk to the FIRST 20 seconds of. We are not able to accommodate alternate timing. Guest judges will review each look and award prizes to three favorites. We’ll see you on the runway!

HFF18 Community Events & Programming

We are so excited to announce a slate of community events that will take place during the 9th Annual Hollywood Fringe Festival.

Full details about all these events can be found on their individual event pages. The festival proper will kick off with the Opening Night Party on June 6th at the LGBT Center, historically the festival’s biggest social event. Details about exclusive VIP tickets will be released in the coming days. 

There will also be a number of services and opportunities available for festival attendees:

  • Fringe Social Hubs: A group of bars and restaurants deeply invested in Fringe to serve as a rallying point, a break room between shows, or a place to meet other Fringers and talk about all that you’ve seen. These spots all offer button discounts and Three Clubs will offer drinks sponsored by Fringe productions.
  • Fringe Hot Spot Program: Festival-wide community discounts are available for Fringe-goers with a Fringe Button from May 31st to June 24th. The perks of a button include $1 off all show tickets, deals around town and access to Fringe-run events. The button can be purchased for $5 (or $3 for Festival participants) online at www.hollywoodfringe.org/market.
  • Fringe Concierge: Festival staff will run a formal home base for the Fringe in a storefront adjacent to Three Clubs at 1123 N. Vine St. Unit 6. This place will be home for participant flyers/posters, HFF information, festival merchandise and snacks. Concierge will open at 5pm on weekdays and 2pm on weekends. It will close nightly at 10pm.
  • Street Teams: Uniformed HFF volunteers will take to the streets near fringe venues and hot spots fielding questions about the festival and helping patrons where needed. Interested in joining the effort? Volunteer!
  • Participant/Venue-Hosted Parties: Fringe has created a new (free) registration type for fringe venues and participants to host their own social gatherings and promote them through the fringe website. To take advantage of this new promotion, create a project and register as your normally would. Select “Social Event” as your registration type. Note that you musty have a fully insured venue in the Fringe zone to participate in this program.

Many of you familiar with the festival will notice that there is no Fringe Central this year. Fringe Central has evolved over the years – from theater to storefront to tent to club. As the festival has grown, we’ve opted to partner with community bars and restaurants to provide a sense of place. We believe this evolution is reflective of the expanding social opportunities within the community.
