Box Office Info


Box Office

The 2022 Minnesota Fringe is a 100% vaccinated Festival. 

How to FringeYou will need a Fringe Button, a seat token, and proof of COVID-19 vaccination to enter the theater. 

Minnesota Fringe Box Offices are located near the entrance of all 11 venues in the Festival. The 2022 pin-back Fringe Button can be purchased at any box office for $5, and everyone needs one to Fringe. Instead of paper tickets, we use reusable tokens at each venue. You will receive your seat token at the box office when you buy or redeem your ticket, then turn it in to the usher when you enter the theater. Our box offices are cashless, so please either bring a credit card/check to purchase, or present your Multi-Show Pass, VIP Pass, Show Comp, or Voucher to redeem. 

Tickets for specific shows may be purchased online until midnight the day before a performance, or at the venue of that performance starting approximately 30 minutes prior to the show start time. Online sales will include a $2 processing fee per order. Online presales stop at 11:59pm the day before a show.

Fringe shows start on time, and for the safety of all concerned, we cannot accommodate late seating or readmission.

Buttons

Everyone attending the 2022 Minnesota Fringe Festival needs to purchase a $5 Festival button. This one-time purchase contributes to the cost of planning and running the Festival. Buttons can be purchased at any Preview event (July 18, 25, and August 3), or at any box office during the festival.

The Festival button is your gateway to the Festival and you will not be permitted into the theater without it. Think of it like a Festival passport and a way to support operations and future programming - the button is admission to the Festival, and the ticket is admission to the show. And, if you receive our Fringe File newsletter, the Festival button will also earn you discounts to theater around town year-round!

Tickets

Your ticket supports our art; It’s that simple! 70% of all ticket sales are paid directly to the artists on stage. When you buy a ticket to a show, you, adventurous audience member, are supporting adventurous art. THANK YOU! 

Walk up Sales - 25% of all tickets are reserved for walk-up sales on the day of the show, starting ~30 minutes prior to showtime at each venue. Tickets purchased at the door are $15 for adults or $7 for youth 12 and under. Some shows sell out within minutes of the box office opening. To guarantee that you'll see a show, purchase online in advance through pre-sales for an additional $3 reservation fee.

Passholders - You can purchase a discounted Multi-Show Pass with 5 or 10 tickets pre-loaded or a Fringe with Benefits membership with an all access VIP pass at Preview events and at box offices until sold out. 10 Show Passes are $110, 5 Show Passes are $65. All Multi-show passes provide access to any show, at any venue, on any day of the festival, provided there is not a sellout, and are transferable and shareable. Simply present your pass at the box office of the show you want to see in exchange for a seat token to enter the theater. If you would like to reserve a seat in advance to guarantee entrance to a specific show, visit the individual show page to purchase a Passholder Reservation for $3.

Pre-Sales - 75% of all tickets are available for sale in advance online up through 11:59pm the day before a show. Pre-sale tickets total $18 for adults ($15 ticket + $3 reservation) and $10 for youth 12 and under ($7 ticket + $3 reservation). You will not receive a physical ticket when you reserve a seat online. Simply give your name to the box office personnel when you show up to the performance. We use reusable tokens instead of paper tickets. The token is your access to the theater. Online orders will be charged a $2 processing fee per order.

Passholder Reservations - 5-Show, 10-Show, and VIP Passholders can reserve a seat online in advance for $3. Online orders will be charged a $2 processing fee per order. Passholders are welcome to take advantage of Day-of Walk up tickets. Simply find the box office personnel to swipe your pass and collect your token.

*NOTE: Our Festival takes a full year to plan, but it is a constantly moving target - especially in light of the pandemic. That means shows get added and dropped all the way up to and through the Festival. If you see a show page without ticketing, it may be because we just added it and we are waiting on some information from the artist. Feel free to notify us of your concern at boxoffice@fringefestival.org.

COVID-19 Safety 

It’s our first year back and we just want it to be perfect. To maximize safety and accessibility for our entire community, we are a 100% vaccinated festival. This means everyone - the artists, the staff, the volunteers, and the loving audiences will be asked to show a completed vaccination card to participate. As for the rest - like mask policies, boosters, or new strains - the ground will continue to move beneath us, and we will continue to adjust as necessary. At this time, masks are strongly recommended for participants. For more detailed information on our COVID-19 Guidelines, please refer to our COVID-19 Policy page.

Accessible Shows

Need a show that has Open Captioning, Audio Description, American Sign Language Interpretation or is suitable for patrons with visual or hearing impairments? Check out our Accessibility Page for a list of shows - it will be up and running by early July.

Tip the Artists!

Have you noticed the dollar emoji on some of the individual show pages? That is a button that takes you directly to the artist's Venmo/PayPal/Cash.me account if you want to support them even more! Not all artists will have a tip jar! If a show page doesn't have a dollar emoji on it, that artist did not elect to use a tip jar up.

**HOT TIP: You must be logged into your Venmo/PayPal/Cash.me account for those links to work. If you get an error, just log in, return to the artist's show page, and click the dollar emoji once more. 

Refunds / Exchanges 

For the safety of our artists and patrons, Fringe does not allow late entry into the theater. There are no refunds or exchanges for missed performances or late arrival. If a performance is cancelled due to a COVID-19 related situation, we will reach out to folks who purchased in advance to reschedule or refund.


We want everyone to have a fantastic Fringe experience. If any issues arise, please reach out. We’ll find a solution! For ticket  or pass issues, email boxoffice@fringefestival.org with your full name, phone number, and details. If anything else comes up, send your question / comment to info@fringefestival.org. All inquires will receive a response.
