Fringe Festival to begin July 14


by William Crum

An annual event is soon to happen in Kansas City, Missouri. The event I am referring to is called the Fringe Festival.

What would the summer months be without the Fringe Festival? In fact, a lot of people from Kansas City, Kansas, and Wyandotte County attend, volunteer or perform at this festival.

Some of those who join the Fringe Festival are State Sen. David Haley, D-4th Dist., not to mention other citizens from Kansas City, Kansas, and Wyandotte County who volunteer to help make the Fringe Festival a success. They have various performances at different venues in Kansas City, Missouri.

The performances are unique, everything from dance to comedy. This year should be even bigger and better. This is the 15th year here for the Kansas City Fringe Festival. How it works is simply this. You can go down to the Fringe headquarters, located at Kansas City Union Station, or go online at

The second step is to get a schedule, buy a button which provides access to Fringe events. The ticket prices are $10 for each event and can be purchased at the venues 30 minutes prior to Showtime, in advance or on the website KC, or at Union Station, Fringe 411 at the Union Station. Ticket prices for children 6 to 12 are $5. And for those of us who like a real bargain at Fringe 411 they also sell shareable punch passes worth $100 for only $90. They accept MasterCard and Visa.

If you want to find out what the Fringe Festival is, you’re cordially invited to the kickoff party held at 6 p.m. July 18 at the Haverty Family Yards behind the Union Station.

It has been talked about in the past that Kansas City, Kansas, and Wyandotte County are being looked at for future Fringe events, that as of now there is nothing.

In the past I’ve covered the Fringe Festival and I personally find it to be totally amazing to say the least. I’m totally recommending the Kansas City Fringe Festival. See for yourself, you can do this by going to the kickoff party at 6 p.m. July 18.
