OGP's West Grandview Fringe Festival started as a way to deal with being rejected by the Fort Wayne Fringe Festival, but now it's a thing. It's own thing. And bigger and better than ever. The Fort Wayne Fringe Festival?? Not a thing. Details below.
Back for it's 5th year with more nights. More venues. More acts. More more. OGP gathers together some of Columbus's top talent to perform short plays, improv, TV show readings, great local podcasts, musicians, and a variety of unique performance pieces to create their own fringe festival for the fifth year in a row.
Yep, it’s blowing up this year, all over the Columbus area, West Grandview Fringe Festival 2019. More nights. More venues. More acts. More more. We’ll still be doing a lot at our West Grandview base, Jimmy V’s, but we’re expanding all over the city. So, block out that calendar from September 24-29th and come check out some tasty intimate theatre, music, game shows, and talk shows. This is not your Dad’s Fringe festival. But, it might be your great aunt’s.
Tickets: $5-10 (only available at the doors)
