“This party is going to be a blast,” said Michael Brush, cofounder. "It's the beginning of the festival and it truly exemplifies the spirit of fringe. It's not only a chance for audiences to interact with artists, but for the artists to interact with other artists and for the media to get a feel for the upcoming shows and see all that the festival has to offer."Charm City Fringe aims to become a yearly event and a staple of the Baltimore performing arts community. The festival is the first and only of its kind in Maryland.
“I love Baltimore’s music scene, but before I started working with Fringe, I had a difficult time keeping up with local theatre,” said second year festival volunteer, Alex Ward. “The ability to explore and have access to all of this art that I previously wasn’t aware of has been fantastic.”
