FringeNYC: New York, New York
One of the largest multi-arts events in North America, FringeNYC runs for two weeks in August at multiple venues in Lower Manhattan. Unlike most fringe festivals, FringeNYC uses a jury-based selection process, so not everybody gets to participate. Thanks to New York's cache, the festival attracts world-class talent.
