Save the date for the 7th annual Charm City Fringe Festival, November 1-11, 2018!

Together, Baltimore's theater community is greater than the sum of its parts. Charm City Fringe, aims to connect and elevate the theater community, engage existing audiences, attract non-traditional theatergoers, and reach out to communities not commonly represented. We look to contribute to the cultivation of Baltimore as a hub for theater and the performing arts without boundaries.


Do you have what it takes to design this year's Charm City Festival button? OF COURSE YOU DO! Over the past 6 years we have had so many amazing buttons and all have been designed by local artists. To continue this tradition, we will be opening this year's festival button design to all of YOU as a contest!

The winner will receive a prize of $100 for all their hard-work and their design will be used as the official button of the 2018 Charm City Fringe Festival. That means THOUSANDS of buttons all around Baltimore and beyond will have your artwork! Deadline for submission is August 24th. Note that final selected artwork will need to be in a vector format.
