Seattle Fringe Festival 2017
What Should I Expect at a Fringe Festival?
- Fringe Festivals give audiences an opportunity to see a wide array of productions in a condensed, high-energy, exciting environment.
- We want audiences to have fun and explore all the opportunities Fringe has to offer. Concessions, including a bar, are available for attendees who want to hang out before, after, or between shows.
- Come for one or all 28 of our shows! Fringe attendance can be infectious, and if you decide to add to your list you can purchase tickets for more shows onsite.
- Super fun Fringe merchandise will be available for sale at the events, as well!
Do You Offer Refunds? NO REFUNDS. All ticket purchases are final.
What Happens If I am Late? NO LATE SEATING ALLOWED. Shows are tightly scheduled with zero leeway to hold show starts. We recommend timing your arrival for check in 10-15 minutes before showtime — and you can enjoy a drink or snack at our concessions area while you wait. At 5 minutes before showtime we release all unclaimed tickets. If you are not checked in by the box office by 5 minutes to curtain, there is no guarantee that your seat will still be available. No Standing Room permitted.
How Long are Tickets On Sale For Online?
Each show’s online sales cutoff is ONE HOUR before that show’s particular performance time. If you do not have a ticket for a particular show/performance time- we do save up to 10% of venues for walkup sales. You may opt and try to get a ticket 30-45 min beforehand at the venue box office for your selected show. If there is no walk-up availability- you could choose to put your name on a waitlist to see if any seats come available 5 minutes prior to show time.
Can I Transfer my Ticket to a Friend?
Transfer requests can only be processed BEFORE the hour before showtime online sales cutoff. Online ticket sales end one hour before the scheduled show time. No transfer requests made after the online sales cutoff will be accommodated.

Can I Buy Tickets at the Door?
We save a small percentage of tickets for walk-up sales, available beginning one hour before each show begins. We do also have a waitlist at the box office if walk-ups already are sold out, and we release pre-sold seats at 5 minutes before the show’s start time. Note: Waitlist seats can only be claimed in person. No Standing Room permitted.
