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!
Bryan’s Bar is back to serve thirsty Fringers at all upcoming HFF hosted events, and this year you can join in on the fun! Put your show image or logo on bar related marketing materials: if we use it, you can brand it and see your fringe show in the hands of thousands of Fringers.
All bar related marketing materials welcomed. Including but not limited to:
All marketing materials must be approved in advance. Please email [email protected] before printing if you are interested in taking part in this boozy branding opportunity.
*Branded materials will be used for all drinks with the exception of Show Sponsored Drinks.
